Today we had a farewell party for LH who had his last day with us today. We will miss him and we wish him all the best as he moves to his new school. Good luck LH!
A highlight of the week has definitely been learning the Victorians song. I’m sure you’ve already heard it but here it is if you’d like to singalong at home:
On Monday we made clothes for Victorian people. We learnt the differences between what the rich and poor people wore.
On Tuesday the Language Ambassadors visited us to teach us some Spanish. We listened to the Gruffalo in Spanish and learnt the parts of the body by singing Cabeza y hombros pierna y pies (heads, shoulders, knees and toes!).
Here’s a link to the song:
On Wednesday we made Valentine’s Day cards, we took our time to do careful cutting and learned how to make a heart by folding and cutting a number 2 shape on the fold.
On Thursday morning Mr Wells and Miss Baillie came to see our writing lesson. We wrote diary entries as a Victorian chimney sweep. They were very impressed with the standard of our writing! We are all trying hard to make our sentences longer by using joining words and WOW words. Well done to AK who wrote a fantastic diary entry – it is going on the Springfield star writer wall!
On Thursday afternoon P3 took some of us to play with the blocks. We had a great time constructing a castle!
In Maths we rounded up our work on multiplication and the 2 times tables. Next week we will begin learning about division.
We are really enjoying free play in the Victorian classroom; we take it in turns to be the teacher. Mr Wells was put in the corner with the dunce hat on when he visited us!
Don’t forget – no school on Monday and Tuesday, we will have a break from homework next week too. Enjoy the long weekend!
Love P2A and Mrs Bell x
