Friday 20th March – Language Challenge!

Hello!!

How are you all?  I hope this Post finds you all well and enjoying your home schooling.  It’s very different for all of us but we all just have to try our best to get used to the new situation that we find ourselves in.  Mrs A. Henderson has asked that, from time-to-time, we still use our Class Blog to set small challenges.  Well…are you up for it?  Here is a Language Challenge you could try and post up your work.

I found a lovely poem all about using the outdoors as a classroom and how you can learn from it.  Please read the poem below and then add your own verse in the comments to tell me how you’ve been using, or could use, outside as your classroom.

 

The Best Kind of Classroom – by Ian MacMillan

This is the best kind of classroom,

No walls, just sky and trees.

This is the best kind of classroom,

No radiators, just a gentle breeze.

 

This is the best kind of classroom,

It’s a journey through time and space.

From the smallest seed to the largest tree,

This is a forest and a learning place.

 

This is the best kind of classroom,

Where the seasons don’t happen in books.

Where learning is watching and thinking and talking,

Where everyone notices and everyone looks. 

 

See what you come up with P5/6!

  1. This is the best kind of classroom
    Where your imagination can run wild
    Where we don’t have to stick to strict timetables
    One problem is, sometimes mum gets riled

  2. This is the best kind of classroom
    Where we can shout and laugh and play and sing
    Where the flowers bloom and the plants all grow
    And the birds tweet loudly and flap there wings

  3. This is the best kind of classroom,
    Where families come and have fun.
    Playing and getting messy,
    enjoying their time in the sun.

  4. This is the best kind of classroom,
    Where history is all around us,
    Where exploring meets learning,
    And we can play without a fuss.

    1. That would be lovely Fearne! Did you notice that I used your resilience quote? I might add some more over the next few weeks to keep us going!

  5. This is the best kind of classroom
    Lots of space to laugh and play.
    To run and climb and have fun
    And have a really great day
