Thanks to everyone who visited our classroom at the open night last week, we hope you enjoyed looking at all of our work! If you didn’t manage to come along, here are some pictures of some of our learning from this term. We’ve loved having Harry Potter as our context and have developed skills in reading comprehension, creative writing, model making and new art techniques, to name just some.
This afternoon we were introduced to a new tool we are using in school, called the 5 point scale. We first of all thought of all the things we are good at – there was such a range from rugby to singing to writing really small!
We then thought about some of the different feelings we can have in different situations- things that we feel comfortable with are about a 1 or 2, but things that make us feel uncomfortable or nervous are a 3 or 4. When we are most anxious or worried we are at a 5. Here we are sorting some of the scenarios based on how they make us feel:
We then made our own stress scales to show which situations in our own life make us feel a 1,2,3,4 and 5.
Finally, we brainstormed some strategies we can use to help to bring us down from a 4 or 5 to a 1 or2. We can up with some great strategies! Watch this space to find out how we will be taking this forward in our class….
