This morning we made flapjacks. We learnt about how oats are good for sportspeople to slowly release energy.
This afternoon we went into the forest. We thought carefully about teamwork and cooperation skills before helping each other to make dens and bug homes. We learnt how to make our structures stronger and more durable by adding supports. We also considered how to ensure everyone was able to take part safely.
Today we had a visit from James the librarian. He works at Verwood library and came to talk to us about what you can do at the library. He also invited us to take part in the summer reading challenge and told us you have to read 6 books and then pop in to Verwood library and tell him about them and he will give you a free medal and send a certificate to school to be given out in assembly! All children have the details of the challenge on a leaflet in their book bags. Ringwood, Ferndown and West Moors libraries are also doing the challenge. James also asked us if we would like to contribute to his display in the library. He wants to know all about our pets. If you would like to be part of the display at Verwood library then draw/photograph and write all about your pet and take you learning to the library, opening hours are on the back of the leaflet.
We welcomed one of our school governors, Mr Holt, into our classroom today to explain how we learn to segment and blend letters and sounds into words. We showed him how we take part in phonics activities and write tricky words and sentences on our whiteboards. He loved joining in with the phonics game on the interactive whiteboard! We then played a teamwork game to help us with our English learning so we could explain what makes good teamwork in our writing task. We took care to use the sounds we have practised in phonics accurately within our writing.
