We are very lucky to have Mr. Clift teaching us the ukulele. Please do listen to our skills.
We shared the love of reading by having a relaxed, read with a snack, finishing our class novel, marvelling at how reading produces so many different emotions within us.
This afternoon we completed the cardboard challenge where the children created accessories for their favourite book characters. There was Harry Potter’s wand, the sorting hat from Hogwarts, a knife and the coronation tin from King of the Cloud Forest, Little Red Riding Hood’s basket, raspberry cordial from Anne of Green Gables, the potion drunk by Alice whilst in Wonderland and Peter Pan’s belt to name but a few.
Year 4 read the book Chicken Clicking by Tony Ross.
We discussed what mistakes Chicken Clicking had made by buying so many things online as well as the terrible error of arranging to meet someone that she had only talked to online as we all learnt that people can pretend to be anything and anyone!
We 'hot seated' Chicken Clicking so that we could explain to her how dangerous her actions were. We also discussed what made us feel safe online and came up with strategies to keep ourselves safe and happy.
Anti-Bully Week 2021
The theme for this year's Anti-Bullying week is, 'One Kind Word'
We all thought about the positive impact that one kind word can have on everyone around us and came up with different sayings to promote this such as - spread kindness like butter on hot toast, a kind word a day keeps the bullies away and spread kindness like a bee spreading pollen.
