This term we have introduced a new activity to our Friday afternoons. We have been completing this activity at the end of the day and it is proving to be a super way to end the week on a positive.
We’ve noticed that it’s not always easy to identify something positive about yourself. In order to try and encourage this positive attitude we are trying to identify some positives that have happened to/ for us throughout the week. There were some initial hesitations but as the term is progressing we are finding it easier each time. We are realising that even in these uncertain times there are lots of positives and we have many things to be thankful for and ending the school week with a ‘high five’ is always nice!
On Friday we started our day with Joe Wicks as part of his 24 hour PE challenge for Children in Need.
Even with all of the doors and windows open we still found ourselves working up a sweat as we squatted and did push ups throughout the morning. There was a mixture of enthusiasm and reluctance but with me joining in some who were less tempted were spurred on to participate too.
I hope I wasn’t the only one with some tender muscles later!
Through discussion the class chose what they would like to do and how we could display this for our learning on Remembrance. We looked at how the petals of a poppy can often be shown as a heart and we tried to recreate this within our painting.
We have also looked at Haiku poems and used this as a way to show our thanks for those who have been involved in any wars or fighting too. We chose a haiku poem as they should be short and powerful, we thought that this would be a great way to display our thoughts and feelings. Below are some of the poems that the class have created.
