Congratulations to Caitlin who was Worker of the Week for a lovely piece of descriptive writing on Friday 27th September and to Charlie who achieved it today for his wonderful rhino sketch.  Well done to both of you!

Welcome to Chandra class everyone. 

It is lovely to see how well everyone has settled back into school after the summer holidays.

We have been very busy over the last few days getting to know one another and building up our new class community. 

Our school rules are really important and we have been talking about the things we can do to follow these successfully.

Congratulations Erin!

We continue to be very busy in Chandra class. This week we have been writing our own Just So stories in the style of Rudyard Kipling, who was a famous author in the late 19th and early 20th century. 

Our project work continues a pace and we have been finding out where rhinos live and why they are facing extinction. We were very shocked to learn how few rhinos are left in the world. Would you believe that there are only two Northern Rhinos left in the wild? Sadly, they will most certainly die out by 2050. We discovered that these wonderful animals are killed for their horn, which is used in Chinese medicine.

In English, we have been looking at a beautiful poetry book called, 'The Lost Words'. This is full of wonderful acrostic poems about the natural world. In particular, we have focused on the poem called 'Weasel'. We have talked about the words and phrases used in the poem and how the poet has compared the weasel to a wildfire. The children drew wonderful sketches of a weasel and I have been thrilled that several have brought in their own sketches from home.

As part of our work on, 'The Lost Words' we closely observed a variety of plants such marigolds, rose hips, fuchsia and cosmos. We thought about words to describe their appearance, texture and smell. We then carefully drew scientific drawings paying very close attention to detail.

Currently we are following a program called Inspirational Maths, this helps the children understand that everyone can succeed at maths. We have talked about the important of perseverance, believing in yourself and having a positive mindset.As part of this programme, the children have had the opportunity to play maths games and undertake different fun activities.
