Sports Relief Week
Second to last week of the Easter term, Yeah! I feel everyone is feeling tired and looking forward to the Easter break and the start of the summer term. We started our RE week, looking at and getting to understand the Resurrection of Jesus and how important this time of year is in the Catholic and Christian churches. Looking at the story of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and his resurrection and what it meant to his disciples and to people today.
In English we are looking at the poem the ‘Sound Collector’ and looking at the use of vocabulary with a piece of poetry and how we can use powerful words to create sounds and images in the readers head, through the use of alliteration and onomatopoeia. The children in Koala have really enjoyed this and created some amazing sentences using onomatopoeia for sounds within our class, some being very imaginative.
We also had more 2 more Koalas move up in their Times tables Challenge, so it’s a big congratulations to Chloe for completing the dizzy heights of Level 14, where she received her head’s certificate in assembly on Friday and Alise for completing Level 9 . Keep going guys and keep practising those times tables, I know it can get frustrating when you don’t pass a level due to getting one wrong in the test. But remember it will mean that you know your times tables absolutely perfectly and it makes the success when you do pass, even sweeter.
Finally we had Sports Relief on Friday, I was asked to do the sporting activities for Alfred House alongside Mrs. Butler. So I based the sports on the ideas of fun and trying to give the children an idea of where the money Sports relief goes to and the people it helps. So the games we did were an alternative massive line games (ask the children), jugging, hola hopping, jumping/bounding fun and finally Blind football and dodge ball. The children had fun and I hope enjoyed experiencing a few new and different sports.
Well Done Koalas and just one more week to go!
