Class of 2021/22
Over the last few weeks we have been learning all about narratives. We read the book 'Ocean Meets Sky' by the Fan Brothers and have really enjoyed talking about the pictures and language within the book. We have written captains log's, diary entries and character descriptions. Here are some of our awesome pieces of work.
Grow a £1
WOW what a month! We have all worked incredibly hard growing and investing our £1 kindly gifted to use by Just Credit Union. As a class we managed to grow our £29 into a staggering £462.30 - what an absolutely incredible achievement! A huge well done to all of Wrekin Class and your fantastic parents/guardians for all of your hard work and dedication to the initiative.
We are that amazing that we happened to be in the Shropshire Star not once but twice - https://www.shropshirestar.com/news/local-hubs/shrewsbury/2021/10/19/kids-get-money-savvy-on-savings-day/
We also had the fantastic opportunity of being on Radio Shropshire TWICE!
In our History and Geography lessons we have been learning all about Wilbur and Orville Wright. We were so intrigued and hooked on learning about them that we decided to name our fish Wilbur and Orville!
Here is diary entry written by Minnie from Orville's point of view on December 17th 1903.
HAPPY HELLO YELLOW DAY!
Today we are raising money for the charity Young Minds. We spent the day talking about mental health and finding ways to support our own mental health.
Here is a photo to prove just how yellow we were today!
We started our year in English by looking at recounts. We began our writing cycle with a cold write. After that, we explored the features of recounts in our Kagan partners. Here we are identifying the good and bad example of a recount by looking at it's features.
Religious Education (R.E.)
Today we met Sophia Owl and introduced ourselves to her. We talked about how Sophie Owl may ask us some big questions. First she asked us “what does it mean to be kind?”
Lincoln – always use kind hands and feet so don’t hurt people.
Isaac – when someone is lonely, let them join in.
Maxi – if someone is hurt, you can help them up and take them to Mrs Clorley.
Sophia then introduced us to two characters. We watched as something went wrong – one of the puppets hurt the other. We talked about what went wrong and who was unkind. We then completed a conscience alley to tell each puppet what they should have done.
Minnie – you should have said sorry straight away
Archie – you can’t hurt anyone
Sophia asked us another big question!
Is it easy to always be kind?
We held a great discussion about different beliefs in our world and how this shouldn’t affect us showing kindness to everyone.
We listened to The Good Samaritan story and talked about other religions. We talked about helping everyone, not just our friends because we’re all human.
We found numbers up to 50 in the forest school area. Once we found them, we worked with our Kagan partners to order them on a number line. We made sure we checked the tens and the ones before placing them down. We were missing a number so quickly identified that.
Our first week in Wrekin Class!
We had a great first couple of days in Wrekin class. We found an aeroplane! Here we are enjoying some role play activities. Miss Fox was impressed by what we already knew about travel and the language we used during our role play activities.
