Tuesday 10th October 2017 was World Mental Health day, we decided to mark the day in school by all classes teaching a lesson around mental health. The children in Tigers discussed what mental health means to them and the difference being a good listener can have to somebody who might be struggling with their mental health. We talked about little and big feelings and created some fantastic artwork depicting our emotions. We also looked at the artist Kandinsky for more inspiration.
Next week, in our English lessons we will be creating an A-Z guide for our own class holiday brochure. The children have prepared for this by discussing and writing about: the features of a non-fiction text, the difference between opinion and fact, the difference between specific and general information and their choice of words for each letter.
In our maths lessons together we have been grappling with re-grouping numbers to help us solve a calculation more easily. We have created our own food chains in our science lesson, and had a very interesting discussion about whether a shark would eat a human or a human would eat a shark!
The homework this week is to complete a grammar sheet which all the children should have brought home with them. As well as completing their spellings and reading - ready to receive their reading award on Monday for their 5 reads!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Children must remember to bring in their PE kits and pencil cases. These should be labelled with your child's name. This way if they are lost they are much easier to hunt down! If you are unsure of what should be in your child's pencil case please feel free to ask.
If you have any other questions or would like to chat please don't hesitate to contact me, either by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or in person when picking up your children from school.
