Class 12 have been writing setting descriptions! We have learned that that as good writers we need to be able to proof read and also edit and improve our work. Miss Nicholson helps us practise this by writing up sentences from our work that have common errors, we then have to work together to spot the errors! She also copies example sentence that can be edited and improved and we have to use a thesaurus to ‘uplevel’ these sentences.
After this, we work in pairs to spot errors in our own writing. We also edit and improve our writing, with a particular focus on improving our use of vocabulary. Today we focused on improving are use of fronted adverbials (remembering the comma!) and ‘uplevelling’ boring words like ‘got’ and ‘went’.
Dear parents and carers,

Everyone has received an appointment, however if you have misplaced this time or forgotten then you can see the timetable slots on our class exit door. If you are unable to make the appointment then please let me know as soon as possible.
I look forward to seeing you all.
Thank you to all who have signed up for this weeks parents’ evening. I will put a list to remind you when your appointment is. I will try my best to stay on time!
Well done to all children, parents and carers! Class 6 achieved 98.1% attendance for the half term – I am very proud. This will help all children make progress. Keep it up next half term. Have a lovely half term break.
This week has seen the completion of our farm display. Each child made a farm animal before choosing a farm figure to stick a photograph of their own face on. It caused much laughter. Come and have a look at their hard work and a smile at their figures.
Old McDonald’s Farm
The children’s next project was to make a shop.
First we all took turns to paint boxes
Next we sealed and strengthened it with PVA glue
It was quite a messy job!
Our cheeky chappy decided to turn the shop counter into a car – very creative
Since opening the shop has been busy
There has been a great deal of imaginative play linked to the children’s own experiences
Did you know that carrots grow under the ground?
Eggs have a hard shell but are soft inside when boiled. They come from a chicken
We made our own sandwiches
Some children chose to make a cheese sandwich
Others chose to make ham sandwiches
Many of the children combined sandwich fillings. They enjoy making independent choices
The children had chosen to make the sandwiches to celebrate their friends birthday. We all had a lovely time
Later in the week the children gathered for Dolly’s birthday. They made her playdough cakes
Playdough aids the children’s fine motor skills. Look how proud she is, wonderful !
Old McDonald likes to slide, ee-i-ee-i-o
“I’m painting this one for my Mamma”
Everyone enjoyed blowing bubbles in their milk, especially Mrs Gibson
Unprompted art on the textured floor extended extended around the entire garden
Choosing the right tool for the job and linking this to life experiences
We have an inset day tomorrow followed by a weeks holiday. Have lots of fun everyone and we’ll look forward to hearing all about any visits and adventures when we return on the 30th October.
