It was one of those occasions today when I actually stopped to think about how quickly this term is going and it’s hard to believe we are almost 7 weeks through. Having been out this morning on a course, I was grateful to be back in school with the children again and the French tones coming from Orchid class were, once again, extremely pleasant, lots of good pronunciation and laughter, which is always lovely to hear. Learning should be fun.
With some intricate images coming through the copier I was intrigued to find out what Lotus class were working on, so took my daily stroll around school to see some fine and detailed art work in full flow. Using pencil only, the children were working extremely hard to replicate their chosen work of art and the shading and concentration was excellent. We do have some super artists. In Clover class pencils were also working furiously, but with control, as they practised their handwriting. I also had the joy of sharing a wonderful piece of work on connectives from a year 2 child this afternoon and it shows how the practice is paying dividends in the children’s extended writing. On a final note, I still can’t walk through Thistle class without smiling at the brilliant rocket they have for their space topic and the way the children use it for role play – it is magical. If you get the chance, pop in to have a look, it’s so creative and imaginative.
Don’t forget the disco on Thursday evening, so get your dancing shoes ready, it’s sure to be a great night!
