Blue Class

November 23-27th 2020

 

Another lovely week in Blue Class! Thank you to everyone who has already sent in envelopes and stamps to post our Father Christmas letters. You still have time to get yours in if you haven’t already. We hope to post them at the end of next week to meet the Royal Mail deadline. We are waiting on around 20 stamps still to be able to post them all.

  This week we have written some amazing sentences using ‘The Dojo Factor’. This is a new grammar game we are using in class to encourage interesting vocabulary and grammar practice. On Wednesday, Raeden and Freddie had ‘The Dojo Factor’.

Raeden wrote, ‘Under a purple sunset, a frog silently waved to another.’

Freddie wrote, ‘Hardy said, “Purple frogs are not real.” Then a purple frog waved silently and Hardy fainted.’ The children are challenged to create sentences using adverbs, adjectives, nouns and verbs. The words are selected randomly from our grammar jars.

  In art this week, we finished our Stone Age axes. The children had so much fun designing and making these and enjoyed posing using their best Stone Age faces for a photograph! Hopefully you enjoy the photos below. 

  In whole class guided reading, the children read all about ‘The Creakers’ and enjoyed giggling at their revolting sounding description.

   Well done to all of those who have continued writing their own comments in their reading records. Please encourage your child to do this job themselves.

Have a great weekend and keep up the super-duper work! We are so proud of you.
