Gemma Pawson - 19 Nov 2020


We finished last week in fancy dress, it was great to see so many yellow, spotty or Pudsey clad children. We loved watching Joe Wicks finish his amazing 24 hour challenge and we thought about why we were helping to raise funds for Children in Need. 

This week we have been busy in so many ways, it is difficult to know where to start. We have started a new unit of work in English inspired by the book 'Sidney, Stella and the moon'. It is all about two children who can't share and it creates a big problem. The story is inspiring us to ask and write questions about the moon, use adjectives to describe the moon, use 'because' in our sentences, then soon be looking at how to write facts about the moon. Hopefully our writing will be able to help Sidney and Stella fix their problem.

In maths we have started to explore subtraction in Year One , we break it down into small steps so that we all really understand the concept and process of taking away and how we use addition fact families to help us with our understanding and knowledge. EYFS have been investigating circles and triangles as well as spatial awareness. There was with absolute surprise and delight for them when they were investigating using 3D shapes to print the 2D faces. Their awe was a highlight of my week! We are all trying very hard to form our written numerals carefully so that everyone can read our fantastic recording work.

I think that one of the highlights of our week was our artwork, we have been looking at the work of collage artists, focussing on their skills and preparing papers and other materials for the last couple of weeks. This week we have been developing our cutting tearing and layering techniques to create our own artwork. We all loved it and our pieces are all so different. We have more work to do and lots of ideas to explore further.

Today we had a totally new adventure for everyone in Acorn Class. We had a pretend 'home learning morning' where we explored Seesaw and started to learn how to use it safely and independently. We have learnt so many new skills. We can watch videos, listen to recordings, open links, take photos of our work and record our ideas. We will keep adding to our knowledge and skills so that we can use Seesaw to help us in our learning at school and if ever needed at home as well. The children worked really hard mastering their new skills. We talked about how and when it is safe to use ICT skills and equipment. 

We have all been trying really hard with our skills this week, we are using a knife and fork for our eating, lots of children have talked about practising at home, and our running and skipping skills are improving daily! I am so proud of everyone! We have also been exploring making music outside with the tuned pipes.. boomwhackers, great work everyone!

Mrs Hatch has shared a fabulous PE resource with us created by the Youth Spots Trust which children can access at home while sports clubs are restricted. 
 
The Youth Sport Trust have taken the step to deliver a free virtual after school club as part of a national response to the second lockdown. The 30-minute club will take place at 5pm each weekday and be led by a different member of the YST’s athlete mentor network, starting on Thursday 12 November with world no.1 female inline skater and 10-time British Champion Jenna Downing. The After School Sport Club will then run for five weeks until December 18 and children and young people can take part live by visiting our YouTube channel - http://www.youtube.com/user/YouthSportTrust

In collective worship this week we have been thinking about how people use the Christian value of patience in their lives. We have looked at the lives of some incredible people and thought about how they might inspire us to show patience and hope rather than giving up when things are difficult, this is an important and challenging message for us all in Acorn Class.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone, I hope that the sunshine is out and we get to enjoy some crisp autumn days!
