We have been reading some poems by Valerie Worth. She specialised in poem focused on an animal or inanimate object of some type. They are short, simple and descriptive. They do not rhyme and the line breaks can be odd.
After reading the poems and thinking about the different features and techniques the class wrote some of their own. We tried to make the poems put a picture in your mind, use simple language and short lines.
We are continuing our tradition (since 2020) of designing a logo for our class. This should identify the class and represent our activities. Like last year all the pupils designed a Logo. This year we asked Mrs Mcleod to judge. A hard job. The winner was Caelan, his design, the featured image above, shows we learn inside and out with fire and technology. We also think and assess our work.
And they are a pretty decent bunch.
The class have settled in really well and are working hard with a great attitude.
We are going to continue with the idea that we do not need a strict set of rules as long as we are “Pretty Decent Kids”. We spent some time thinking about the sorts of things that a Pretty Decent Kid would be like. From explorative through silly to creative. We made some graphics to represent these ideas. Click on the thumbnails below to see in more detail.
Yesterday we started learning about climate change. We thought about how beautiful the natural world is and went out into the playground to take some photos to show this. Maybe these photos will change your view.
We will be continuing to practise out photos skills and take more lovely photos soon.
