We are story writers

Today the children have been busy writing stories and they are coming along nicely. The children have been using expanded noun phrases to make their writing more exciting! You could help your child understand story structures and improve their language by reading lots of stories at home! In maths we have been identifying money and we can name all the coins and notes we have in England and they have been adding different amounts to find totals- when you’re shopping you could ask your child to help you add different amounts. Thank you for your continued support!

Wow what a busy week

The Elf owls have worked tirelessly this week completing some assessments. I feel very proud of their hard work and they have all tried very hard. Today we became Bob- the man on the moon and we have written a letter recounting his day. Well done Elf owls! Next week we will be starting to rehearse our Christmas play- let the fun begin!

5 minute sketch story

Every week I will give the children 5 words that they need to creatively use in a short story. We will then look at how differently we’ve each used the words. I will blog the words and some stories to see how creative you can be with the words. We did the story together today- can you write a story with the following 5 words.
Only
Both
Whole
Any
Most

We pledge to be upstanders

Today we thought about the role bystanders have when someone is being bullied. In Elf owls we know it’s not cool to be a bully but we don’t want to be a bystander either! We’ve decided on 4 tricks to change from being a bystander to an upstanders!
1. If we see someone being bullied we might go up to them and be their friend (bullies don’t expect their victims to have friends).
2. If we see someone being bullied we can go over and interrupt and take the attention away from the bully.
3. Speak out and say hey that’s mean don’t say that!
4. Tell someone!

If we can be an upstanders we can do our bit to stop bullying and be a friend to someone who really needs it.

Kindness hands

Today we thought about how we can be kind in school. We each said something kind to one of our friends- it made us smile to hear nice things being said about us. We then made some kindness hands to show different ways we can all be kind!

Song writers

Today we became song writers and in groups the children each made up their own verse to add to our class song about bullying! I think they did a fab job! And they sang it beautifully.

Anti bullying week

Today we have been thinking about the phrase “All different, all equal”
We have all made a jigsaw piece to show how we are all different but all equal. Together we fit together and become something amazing!
