ALL ABOUT ME 

Image result for bucket filler

At the start of term we focused on a text called 'Have You Filled Your Bucket Today?'  This book encourages positive behaviour as children see how rewarding it is to express daily kindness, appreciation, and love. Bucket filling and dipping are effective metaphors for understanding the effects of our actions and words on the wellbeing of others and ourselves. We have produced some fantastic work in response to the book :                                                                                           

  • Written instructions on how to be a bucket filler
  • Class Charters based on the principles of bucket filling
  • Written a description of a perfect bucket filler 
  • Designed our perfect classroom
  • Work based on understanding rules and expectations. 

 

SLEEPING BEAUTY 

We were very fortunate to be able to watch the production of 'Sleeping Beauty' in October. It was fantastic, and inspired us to write our own traditional stories. 

 

1960s Day

 

What a fantastic afternoon we had celebrating the 1960s!  Lots of our parents came along and joined in with the fun. We all dressed up and took part in lots of activities. We made jewellery, played a game of  'Beetle Drive',  played board games from the 1960s and made Beatles dolls. We then had a disco and practised our dance moves such as 'The Swim' and the 'The Twist'. 

 

 

                                                                                                                        CINEMA TRIP - NUT JOB 2 

We had a wonderful time at the cinema. Our literacy unit was based on the themes from the film. We went to Thornes Park and investigated what aspects would be missed by animals and humans if the park were to close. We wrote letters to the council and had courtroom arguments defending the park. 

LIGHTS, CAMEL, ACTION!

 

Our nativity was a sensation this year! The staff in KS1 and immensely proud of the all the children! A big thank you to parents for helping the children learn their lines, providing costumes and coming along to watch and support. 

Have a lovely Christmas !
