Listen, listen...

A poem by Class 1P

Listen, listen, children singing,
Listen, listen, pencils writing, 
Listen, listen, gymnasts balancing, 
Listen, listen, plotters whispering, 
Listen, listen, teachers teaching,
Listen, listen, birds squawking. 

See, see, paintbrush swirling,

See, see leaves twirling, 
See, see harvest assembly,
See, see, lots of food,
See, see, tins of beans,
See, see, fresh vegetables,
See, see, shiny conkers.

Feel, feel, prickly pinecones,

Feel, feel, delicate seashells,
Feel, feel, smooth acorns,
Feel, feel, the cold wind,
Feel, feel, the warm sun. 

We have been working on our fine motor skills by taking part in Funky Finger activities to build the strength and flexibility in our hands. 

Our handwriting practice this week is improving and we have been working on the following types of letters each morning:

In History we have been learning more about Guy Fawkes and the famous Gunpowder Plot. Our historians thought about what it was like to be a plotter working with Robert Catesby, trying to blow up the Parliament with King James in it. We also heard from King James I and his supporters who shared their view of the events.

We can use dictionaries! 

It's as easy as A,B,C, 1, 2, 3...

Speaking of numbers, we have been learning how to count up in twos and fives. 
This song has been stuck in Mrs Page's head all week. 
Ask us to sing it to you!

Have a great weekend.
