Miss Mandelson - 14 Jan 2022

Lifelong Readers
During the first half of the term we shall be celebrating our love of reading as we weave our 'golden thread' of 'becoming lifelong readers' through much of what we do.  We began by meeting a little boy who loves books:  Henry.  Henry loves books but perhaps not in the same way that we love books.  First the children discovered Henry's rucksack in our classroom.  We had a rummage about inside to see what we could find out about him.  There were plenty of clues including...
 

 
 
...a newspaper cutting about him, a medical letter detailing some worrying symptoms, a library ticket showing a fine for overdue books, a school report and some half-eaten books.  The children were excellent detectives and were able to deduce that the main character was a school boy who liked to EAT books!!

 
We are looking forward to exploring 'The Incredible Book-Eating Boy' by Oliver Jeffers over the coming weeks.  The children have also been asked to think about what they like to read and to see if they can predict the nation's favourite children's books/authors.  We shall be using our list of the top ten most popular children's books in our English lessons next week.

In Mathematics, we have returned to the operations of multiplication and division which the children began to look at last term with Miss Asker.  The children have recapped what they have learned so far and have used their knowledge of the ten times table to solve word problems and write number stories.  We have looked at various pictorial representations to show what happens when we multiply a number by ten, including some rather large numbers!

As we start a new year, the children have been busy thinking about what they would like to achieve in 2022.  In our PSHE lessons, we have been reminding ourselves of the 5 ways to wellbeing:


 
We have used these to help us to set some personal goals for the year ahead.  The children have been provided with a booklet with more information about the five ways to wellbeing to share with you at home.  There is space in the booklet to reflect on personal goals.  However this has not been set for homework and there is no expectation that the children fill it in unless they want to.  It is just for their own personal use.

Beth and Matty from Cool Sports joined us again this week and helped the children to be active whilst also learning something new.  The children had another go at fencing and it was lovely to see how well they embraced this new experience outside in the sunshine...

I have been working on my own personal goal and taking notice of the children's effort, achievements and the way in which they live out our school values of kindness, patience, peace and love.  The recognition board is beginning to fill up nicely and quite a number of shining stars have been awarded for all sorts of things:

Hopefully everyone received this term's class newsletter by email on Monday.  If not, do click on the links below to take a look at what we shall be getting up to this term.  As ever, please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries.

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend,
Miss Mandelson
