We have certainly had a busy first week in Room 13 with P3/4. We have been working hard to learn new routines and all about our new classmates and teacher. We have also been revising our phonemes from last year as well as practising our addition and subtraction skills!
Our PE days are Monday (outdoor) and Friday (indoor). Kit can be brought in on a Monday and taken home on a Friday afternoon.
Please follow our class Twitter page @MissSTurton for weekly updates on our learning and any notices or reminders.
Please also check your child’s homework diary regularly for homework and communication from Miss Turton.
Miss Turton thinks we have got off to a fantastic start in Room 13 and is very much looking forward to working with all the children this year.
We have been working on building friendships and co-operation. We went outside to learn some new team games that we can play during break times. We have also been continuing to do our Race to Rio laps, running, jogging and walking for 15 minutes per session.
As part of book week, we have been learning about the classic story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. In PE, we were working in groups to make up dances to the ‘Oompa Loompa’ song. We had a lot of fun creating our dances and enjoyed performing them to the class.
On Fridays, we all take part in Team Building exercises.
Last week, each group had to try and construct the highest tower using spaghetti and marshmallows.
Today the challenge was to make the tallest cup tower using 49 cups.
Top three towers:
Well Done, Team Players!
