Weekly Update 13th January 2022

Mrs Wolfe - 13 Jan 2022

What an amazing start to the new term we have had in Palm!  The children have come springing back into class and have been raring to go with their learning.  It has been such a delight to see all of their smiling faces and such enthusiasm for all that they do.

We began the week with a reminder of our expectations and values, revisiting routines and exploring our 3Bs, especially what it looks like to 'Be Respectful'.  I have been so impressed with the children and their understanding of our school vision.  They certainly 'Shine Like Stars in the Sky' and 'Live Life in all its Fullness' every single day.  This week, our PHSE work has continued with a focus on our Christian value of 'kindness'.  We explored the premise of 'One Kind Word' and how if we spread kindness in every way we can make a change.  This led on to an exploration of what bullying is and how we can stop it.  The children have created some fantastic anti-bullying leaflets and have articulated very well what bullying is, how to recognise it and what to do about it.  

Just take a look at some of the child-friendly policies they have created...

Our PE got off to a very exciting start last Friday with fencing!  Chris from Sports Cool will be teaching small groups of children fencing over the forthcoming weeks and we are soooo excited about this!  Chris will also be teaching PE every Tuesday afternoon.  As a reminder, please ensure PE kits are in school every Monday morning and that they are returned to school following our Tuesday PE session, as the children will be sent home in their kits, thank you.

Monday morning was a real mystery!  Maddie discovered a dishevelled looking suitcase under her table, which revealed some very strange and troubling objects...a newspaper report, a medical report and to our horror...some eaten books!  Our trusty Palm detectives got straight down to business, trying to work out who, or what, the culprit might be.  A report was made to Mrs Taylor and just as we were going to contact the police we discoverd it was 'The Incredible Book Eating Boy'!  Wow!  We are now looking forward to writing some exciting stories linked to our new book and began exploring relative clasuses this week, in preparation for some outstanding writing!

Our reading focus book is 'The Wild Robot' by Peter Brown and we have spent this week exploring the front cover in preparation for our prediction work.  

Our class book has also been causing a real stir!  'The Day I Fell into a Fairytale' by Ben Miller is proving to be so exciting, we just can not put it down!  We are really enjoying following Lana on her adventures into the fairytales of the Brothers Grimm.


Our golden thread for this term is life-long readers and I think we can safely say we have a host of them in Palm Class!  It was amazing to hear about the children's Christmas reads and the books that Father Christmas brought them!

Watch out for our sponsored readathon this half term - details to follow very soon.

Our maths learning has been very creative this week.  We have been exploring the vocabulary of addends and creating aggregated stories.  The children have been cementing their understanding of addition through the exploration of adding three addends and using concrete resources to find efficient ways of calculating.  Today we created stories to explain our understanding and the children came up with some really creative ideas.

Palm returned to their music learning this week with Mrs Harris, who will also be teaching french this term; the children have been busy learning commands and phrases.  I am so impressed!

Our recognitions have been off the scale and the dale team dojo totals are rising daily.  We have spent some time discussing how we are recognised for when we follow outr 3Bs, put our Christian Values into practice and shine like stars.  Our recognition board is fillling up and be sure to look out for some above and beyond postcards arriving from Mrs Taylor. 

As well as reminding ourselves about our recognitions, we have also been discussing our stepped consequences of reflection through restorative conversations and agreeing how to make it better.  Once again, I have been extremely impressed with the children and their maturity regarding making the right choice.

All in all, a superb start to term, I am sure you'll agree!
