Another week has flown by in Chaplin Class and I am really proud of the way the children have settled into Year 1. They are all working hard and supporting each other in their learning and play. They are a great team.
So far this term we have written our Class Charter which are a set of rules we have agreed on to ensure we are all happy,safe and able to learn in school. We have also been learning about Charlie Chaplin. We've watched some silent black and white films, written about him, drawn some pictures of him with charcoal, pretended to be him in P.E and even dressed up like him! We all think he is a very funny character!
Last week we had three very fluffy visitors in Chaplin Class for the afternoon. Mrs. Hamblin, one of our reading volunteers, kindly brought in her three baby rabbits, Bob, Bonnie and Billie. We all had a cuddle and learnt about how to look after rabbits. Afterwards the children did some fantastic writing about our visitors.
That's not the only animals we met last week. On Thursday Harold, the giraffe, came to visit us on the Life Education Bus. He told us about how to eat healthily and look after our bodies. We all enjoyed meeting him.
I am so pleased the children have been so enthusiastic about reading. They have been great at remembering their books everyday and putting them in the crate when they need changing.
A reminder that our PE days are Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning.
Photos of some of the activities we have been doing will be appearing soon !
Thank you all for your support at the beginning of Year 1. Please do not hesitate to pop in and see me if you have any questions.
