We have learnt how to create an opening paragraph for a Newspaper, using Pie Corbett’s Talk4Writing approach in Year 5. With a combination of pictures and actions, it helps children remember all the required features to improve their writing!
The drawings are on our class Hwb page, so they can perform it for you at home.
The nursery children were very kind today and made some bird feeders for the birds. First an adult helped them to remove the core and thread string through the middle of the apple, then they used their fine motor skills to push seeds into the apple peel. The birds are going to enjoy eating those.
The nursery children practised their fine motor skills today. Our special sound of the week is ‘p’, so they used pegs to pick up pom-poms and dipped them in paint. They then used the pom-poms to print on the letter p. Well done nursery. Gwaith da!
What a wet and windy Wednesday it was today, so we had to do some of our activities indoors. We went on a walk in our nature area to collect some sticks, acorns and leaves, and we used the sticks when we made our salt dough hedgehogs. We also made some fabulous playdough faces on pumpkins and matched the correct number of sticks on the Stick man pictures. We did some super Stick man puzzles and looked for sticks in the sand.
Bags packed, registers taken, sandwiches checked, buckets and spades in hand, and we were off!
It was a fantastic day and the weather was kind to us too…..
We dug, paddled, run, played football, and frizbee.
After the first round of fun we sat for our lunch, even with the avid onlooking seagulls, waiting for an opportunity of a crumb here and there. Soon we were up again for more sand castles and the second half of the footie!
