A very busy week with a visit to Wycombe library to meet the poet and author Joseph Coelho. The walk through Wycombe passed without incident and the children were great in the library- a credit to the school. They joined in to create poems and took part in active story telling. Joseph was so impressed with the children he tweeted:
"High Wycombe Library. The students loved Luna’s books & the sounds (& huge spiders) that escaped from them. After the show one kid asked “how are books made?” Another asked “What makes the night come?"
I will put links to his website and would encourage you to visit the library this week.
In maths they used lots of objects to help with subtraction- and didn't pop any balloons!
The children wrote their stories about their lost toy, based on Knuffle Bunny. They planned them first, then wrote each part a day at a time. They also wrote a thank you letter to the library for organising such a special visit.
In science we chose a tree together to photograph over all the four seasons to see how things change. They used a Venn diagram to sort animals into carnivores, herbivores or omnivores and then worked in groups to make sentences to match animals to their foods.
In PSHE the children wrote cards to their special person and thought about how we are all special to God.
