Miss Oates and Mrs Pawson - 14 Feb 2019

It certainly has been very quiet in the classroom this week! We hope the children start to feel better soon and come bouncing back with energy. We can't wait for a 'full house' again. 

There has been some great design work happening in class this week. The children have been super engineers and have created all sorts of models and even created surveilance centres to keep an eye on their creations. This work has involved lots of careful drawings and labelling as well as some internet research and teamwork - we haved loved all the learning! 

The children have also been busy practising their reading and writing skills this week using all their phonics knowledge. It is important we still do lots of letter sound recognition to help us with all our reading and writing. Spotting sounds when you're out and about is a great quick way to practise...little and often is perfect! Our write dance work has also been helping us develop our gross and fine motor skills needed for writing. We have continued looking at circles and eights this week making sure our movements are fluid. 

The children have been very busy today making and writing fantastic notes and cards to bring home, such a lot of care and love. We hope you have loved receiving them. Our story this morning about how our hearts feels led to a fantastic discussion about the best place to share a bedtime story, it was lovely to listen to the children’s ideas and reasoning!

We we have been learning how to whittle as one of many ‘outdoor’ skills, the children have been showing real determination and resilience over the weeks as it can be a tricky skill. It also takes a great deal of patience and we feel very proud of our sticks. They might look like ‘just a stick’ but to us they are very special. Now that we have mastered the skill we can use it to make so many things and we have some great plans. Keep an eye out for the special sticks in our bags and pockets!

About the work we do in class...
A lot of the work we do might not have a ‘beautiful end result’ (we always think the children’s work is fantastic but we do appreciate that to everyone’s eye it isn’t always beautiful). This is because the children are learning through the process they go through rather than the finished result. A battered box might have gone through several painstaking design ideas and quality checks, or a piece of paper painted brown might have been finger painted, coloured mixed on and rollered. The process of working and the inquiry that the children undertake is to us very important. Our children are so proud of their work and we have been doing a lot of work with them to help develop their skills and inquires, encouraging them to have a go and to keep trying. A top tip that we use when presented with something wonderfully made is to say ‘tell me all about it...’ the conversations which evolve will never disappoint!

Please can you help...if you have any old watch or clock parts Mrs Pawson is collecting them for a future provocation if you could pop them into class that would be great.
