Miss Pitchford: November 2018
What a brilliant week we had last week! It started with the Remembrance assembly in school and I was so proud of how well everybody sat and listened in the assembly and showed their respect by standing quietly outside while the wreath was layed. We spent time talking about the importance of Remembrance day and why it is a very special day for many people, we then made our own handprint poppies and planted them in the Base 1 garden. See if you can spot them over our fence! The themes of remembrance and peace led our learning for most of the week which we explored through The Peace Book. This story told us about lots of ways in which peace can be found in the world and helped us to understand what we could do to help people live peaceful lives. We explored some of these further, one of which was 'Peace is everybody having a home'. On Tuesday we worked in groups of 3 to make homes for some of our animals in the forest area, we had to work together and collect sticks and leaves to make shelters to keep our animals warm and dry. On Wednesday we also made our own peace stars and wrote down our own wishes for peace. Before PE we learnt about how taking a little time for ourselves is a peaceful thing to do and so we spent the lesson learning how to do some yoga!
On Thursday it was Elmer Day! The children came to school looking fabulous in their multicolours and we had the best day celebrating being unique and special. Thank you so much to everyone who was able to come and take part in our Elmer day, it was lovely to have so many visitors in school and the animals you helped the children to make were just amazing!!
I hope everyone has had a lovely, restful weekend.
