Welcome to the Nook 2021-2022 with Miss Stone and Miss Dodds!
Week 7- lots of fun this week. We explored Marbling inks in Art as a part of our new printing unit, we worked as a team to sequence our English book correctly and had a challenge to retell the story in under 1 minute, we made a start on creating “Peace doves” in honour of Martin Luther King as a part of Black History work, we also made traffic lights out of fruit and smarties for Garrett Morgan’s work on creating traffic lights, worked on our agility and balance skills again in PE, relaxed in mindfulness and explored how our behaviour affects others in Zones of Regulation.
Week 6- This week we have; created ‘freeze frames’ in English to help us with our writing, written some fantastic spellings, created a science investigation to explore the speed of evaporation, expressed ourselves in zones of regulation and worked on our agility skills in PE!
Week 5- lots going on again this week-exploring watercolour techniques in Art, writing diary entries and conversations as our “Stone Age Boy” character in English, writing descriptions of the Wooly Mammoth, exploring modern “evidence” in topic, relaxing in mindfulness, celebrating ourselves with our new “Charter Tree” in PSHE, exploring zones in zones of regulation, writing amazing spellings and working together in Pe! Wow!
Week 4;- Another great week! We had our new Literacy Tree Hook with mysterious footprints and paintings all over our classroom floor, continued our great work in Maths, had some home-made tomato chutney courtesy of Miss Brock from our school garden, explored digital devices in Computing, investigated different Bibles in RE and relaxed our bodies and minds with some yoga too! Busy busy!
Week 3 and another fab week! We had assessments this week so in between our hard work we had lots of other projects on the go, designing Beebot worlds for our Beebot robots, creating and designing junk models of our favourite animals and lots of play and social interaction! Alongside this we had our other lessons; PSHE focusing on things we are proud of and setting goals for the year, zones of regulation, sorting our feelings into the correct zones to identify our emotions, and PE, focusing on the fundamental skills of movement!
A brand new year and a brand new class! Lots of fantastic work and settling in really well for the new pupils in the Nook! An excellent transition for all! Here we are showing some of the things we have done so far; independent work, decorating our PE bags, finding out about Zones of regulation and playing “guess the feeling” and listening to sensory stories! We are looking forward to our year ahead!
