Giraffes CAN Dance!

What a great week we have had in Class 6! We have been immersing ourselves in our new class text, Giraffes Can’t Dance,  by assembling jigsaws of the cover, making giraffe masks and identifying the features of a letter from Gerald to the other animals. In the next couple of weeks we will be learning some moves in the hope we can prove that giraffes CAN dance!

Can you spot our new class member Stretch the giraffe in the background of our photograph?

He is settling into our class very well!

What an amazing start Class 5!

Wow! Today Class 5 have blown me away with their enthusiasm, great attitude to learning and superb behaviour.  What an amazing start!

We have done so much all in our first day.  The children worked hard to follow instructions using the remember to pictures on the board to remind them when making a jellyfish and then this afternoon worked independently to make crabs, all to enhance our under the sea area in our classroom.  It now looks amazing!

I was so impressed with their efforts in handwriting practice.  They were brilliant when first practising with chalk but then could not have impressed me more when writing such small, neat letters in our new lined books.  During free time Lilly went on to want to do more writing to show how hard she has been working to get better.

I am super proud of all of you and know that this year is going to be fantastic!  Take a look below at today’s photos of our amazing day!
