We all discussed the agenda for the pupil council and voted for our end of term party theme and ideas for activities for POLO day.
Everyone had their vote and were effective contributors and actively engaged in the conversation.
The vote decided a football theme and taking part in water activities then a BBQ for POLO day.
Our IDL theme work this term is based on Beauty and the Beast, accepting everyone and not judging someone by the way they look.
We looked at the main characters and discussed how they looked at different sections of the story.
Our theme is do not judge someone but take the time to get to know them first. Be confident individuals and celebrate what makes us a good friend.
We discussed what qualities are in a good friend, then thought about what is our own best quality is. We shared this with the class and then told everyone who our best friend is. We then took part in some activities that our friends like to do.
We planted our very on rose seeds and made some flowers from a variety of shapes.
Everyone chose their favourite character and everyone wanted to be the Beast.
We discussed Global Goal 17 in class this week, coming together to work in partnership with others. Helping people and joining together as a group.
We took part in some team games to demonstrate that at times problems can be solved if we all work together as a team and be effective contributors.
We were working against the clock to take puzzle pieces to our champion puzzle problem solver then as a full team we just made it to put the puzzle together before the time was up. Great team work Oak!
Our next job was to get the ball into the basket but we were not allowed to move with the ball so again as a team we worked together to pass the ball along to the team mate closest to the basket.
In the Oak class we have worked hard on our literacy, listening and talking skills. We have all been confident individuals when looking and describing what we see in pictures. We enjoyed looking at our self in the mirror, we have a class who really enjoy admiring themselves.
Everyone had to complete a portrait of themselves and then confidently stand and share their features of hair colour and eye colour to the class. We were very proud of the loud clear and confident voices used when talking to their friends.
We have been working on improving our reading skills and recognising the sound two letters make when they are put together. We were successful learners working on our own sounds and could roll and read the words.
We have had effective contributors working well with a partner to complete a jigsaw puzzle with some gestural support from an adult. Lots of great team work and problem solving whilst working against the clock to complete.
This morning we came into class and found our beautiful Earth sun-catchers reflecting the colour onto the carpet.
Our bird feeders were ready to hang up in the garden this morning. The birds will have some lovely treats this weekend. If there is any food left next week we will do some bird watching in the garden.
We will be responsible citizens and make more food for the birds when they finish their food.
