We had lovely news this week from Rebecca. During lockdown she entered a Wildlife Trust competition to invent her own nocturnal creature complete with facts and a detailed description. Rebecca invented a “batwhale” and, to everyone’s delight, SHE WON!
We also really enjoyed our Life Education visit. Katie talked to us about how to be assertive and resilient. Katie was very impressed with how the children suggested ways of staying calm but firm whilst still being polite and considerate of others’ feelings. We have now finished our stories in English and have moved onto addition and subtraction in Maths.

In Maths this week we have been comparing and ordering numbers whilst in English we have been writing our stories and learning about conjunctions.
On Tuesday, Eagles had their first ever mindfulness experience. The session began with us learning how to breathe deeply like lions and snakes - complete with animal noises! We then practised yoga poses such as “the tree”,” downward dog” and, the children’s favourite, “the froggy!”. The lesson ended with mindful relaxation to the sound of a Tibetan singing bowl. The children really enjoyed their time and some said that they felt the most relaxed ever!

It has been lovely having the children back this week. They settled in so quickly and were raring to go! In Maths we focused on place value and by Wednesday we were up to 10,000,000! In English we have been exploring the unfamiliar language and storytelling of Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book” with lots of “thou” and “ye” thrown in for good measure!
It has been a great week and we are looking forward to a lovely term together. read
