It was a very windy afternoon today and the wind was blowing our towers down. We found new ways to build our towers so that they were stronger and the wind couldn’t blow them down. We had lots of fun!
Thank you so much for all the generous food donations that you brought to school. We delivered the food on Wednesday to the Thorne and moorends community hub and food bank. They were ever so please to receive such a vast amount of food and send their thanks. The children were really excited to take the food and loved every minute there and were even treated to a little drink and snack. (unfortunately we couldn’t take everyone) however if you would like to go and donate more food it’s worth the trip. It’s open every Wednesday morning and its in the rugby club house next to trinity academy.
We’ve been working on our collaboration skills in class three this week, we have worked hard to take turns and work as a team in our child initiated learning activities.
This week we have been reading ‘What the Ladybird heard’ by Julia Donaldson. We found a map in the story and clues around the classroom. In our literacy lab with Mrs Hardman we made a class map of the buildings we find in Thorne. We were very proud of our work!
Well done to Eve and Clio in Y1 for being the first children to reach 30 books on our reading challenge. They have received their certificates and had their bronze stars added to the display in the hall.
This week we have focused on the sounds p, n, m and d. We have played lots of games to practise recognising these sounds. We have played games like sound Jenga, sound fishing, sound hopscotch and fastest finger. We have also continued to read words containing all the sounds we have been learning. Pan, man, dip etc. Comment below to tell us about any phonics learning you have been doing at home and we will award each comment 20 house points!
