Don’t Worry, Be Happy- Talk and Tell Sessions

Hello everyone.
I hope you are all staying safe and enjoying the snow ⛄️
I wanted to let everyone know that if you had a Talk and Tell session booked for Wednesday or Thursday of this week and have missed it due to the snow storm, that I will be in touch with you next week to rearrange your appointment. You will not miss out on your Talk and Tell time, it will just be at a different time.
Stay safe and warm and I shall see you next week.
Mrs Hayes

I WORK CO-OPERATIVELY WHEN…
we were in teams at assembly. When we were doing our assembly on John Muir on Tuesday we had the ICT Team, Drama Team, Poster Team, Welcome Team, Book design team and the Music Team. Charlie/Logan T/Mark

We were with Miss McLaren on the computers. We were adding things about ourselves. Owen

I CAN NOW…
I can kick my legs pointed and straight 50 times at my ballet class. Anna
I can do cursive handwriting now and I know this because in my John Muir Report I tried Cursive and it worked. Mark
I can run fast now because when I was running in the 3G pitch I noticed that I am very fast. Logan K

I’VE BEEN THINKING/LEARNING ABOUT…
How did John Muir get into nature? Charlie
That John Muir was really smart. Hope
John Muir vs Urbanisation. I’ve been learning that urbanisation and John Muir can be correct because we need homes and nature. Sammy

I will practice…
My spelling bee because there are very tricky words in it. Joe
How to do my handstands longer. Annfell
My turns in ballet. Jasmine
My tumble turns in swimming. Findlay B
Our speech for prayer group for Wednesday. Heidi and Anna.
