P4 have been learning about sea turtles this week for our project on the Great Barrier Reef. We found out lots of amazing information about these beautiful creatures, we have been learning how to draw turtles and mixing paint to create the right colours for them. They will be the first creatures on our reef display.
P4 have been busy over the last few weeks working on their writing skills. We have used the short film Blue Umbrella as inspiration for our writing. We have created our own version of the story and each day we add sentences from our work to our sentence stacking wall so we will have a class version too. We have been learning to write action sentences, feeling sentences and sound sentences and we have developed our writing techniques by using similes, onomatopoeia and alliteration. One more writing session to go to finish our fabulous story – we are so proud of our work!
Initially our top priority is happy and settled children – and the children have done themselves proud returning to school with really positive attitudes and ready to learn after being away for so long.
This year our school improvement plan has a strong focus on Literacy as a key area we wish to review and improve. There are also other areas of school development that we have carried on from last year.
If you believe you can help support any area of development in any way , please so get in touch !
