There is 'Only one you' and you are awesome. I LOVE this book. It celebrates our uniqueness and opens our minds to the difference we can make in the world. It makes us think with a growth mindset and the pictures are amazing. We have each decorated a pebble to go towards our whole school art project (hopefully you've read this week's newsletter detailing the idea). Using 'Doozie' paint pens (which are AMAZING by the way) we designed our own individual patterned pebble fishes. They look wonderful! I sprayed them on the Inset day with a special coating spray and they look even better now. Keep an eye out for our next step
We had a fabulous time on Thursday with our visitors from Year 5. They took on the teacher role to teach us about fractions in a fun and memorable way. Beech loved the games and sheets that the Year fives made and also loved the prizes and certificates they got at the end!
Well done to everyone for their hard work on our reading challenge! This smiling superstar was the first to complete and be invited to our movies and munchies fun after half term. Keep up the great work everyone. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the challenge for the most reads and the most improved. Who will it be this time?
What have Beech been up to recently?!
Well, sadly, we've had no camera to record our fun since Christmas!
Sooooooo... this week we have been keeping an eye on some very eggciting events in Year One. The eggs hatched! On Thursday we popped by to see one egg at the beginning stages of cracking and, rather uneggspectedly, we saw a one day old chick! Miss Powell held it so we could have a close look. Some of Beech also stroked it! It was soooo cute.
We have been working very hard on continuing our learning on fractions (I have uploaded some suggested fraction websites for fun times) and in Literacy we have started our new topic of the Stone Age. Gemini gymnastics are coming in every Thursday to teach us some cool techniques and we continue to think about having a Growth Mindset with 2 books 'The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes' and 'Only One You'.
Keep working hard with our reading challenge! It has been brilliant to see so many come in to us each day to receive their rewards. Please continue to encourage your child to take part - it makes such a difference!
You are always very welcome to come in and write a WOW card - we have recently celebrated someone joining a Tae Kwon Do class and another explaining all about gravity and mass by balancing a TV remote on his knee!
