Children in Need
We spent some time on Children in Need day talking about the reason for the day and the children it may benefit. Along with this, the focus for this year is to improve the wellbeing of all children, by encouraging them to think about the 'Five to Thrive'-the five things that may be beneficial to their wellbeing.
Connect-talk to people. This could be friends or family
Take Notice-be aware and mindful of the world around you
Get Active-spend some time exercising
Be Curious-improve your growth mindset by learning something new
Give-things such as time and kindness that don't cost money
We tried an activity for each area and the photos below show some of these.
As part of our learning for Remembrance Day, we read the book 'Poppy Field' by Michael Morpurgo. We then wrote down some of our thoughts about remembrance. Here are some of the things we said:
"I hope no one will forget what the soldiers did for us."
"I wish the soldiers were alive so we could say thank you."
"I want people to respect Remembrance Day."
"I love seeing people wearing poppies to appreciate those who died."
We also painted a 'thought pebble' to help us remember.
We have really enjoyed learning about our class birds in the first week and getting used to our new routines, classrooms and teachers.
We celebrated Roald Dahl Story Day on Friday to link in with our class reading books 'The Witches.'
We became 'Witchophiles' and created posters about how to recognise witches and completed some fun activities including making a mouse who appears later in the story.
