Children in Need

Today (Friday 15th November) is Children in Need day.  We have been learning all about 'Children in Need' and what this charity is all about.  We talked about how lucky we all are and how unfortunately some children are not as lucky as us.

We decided to write an acrostic poem about 'Children in Need'.  We worked together as a class to share our ideas and write this poem.  We hope you like it!

Our sponsored work-out!

We completed 4 'Jo Wicks' exercise work-outs from the 'Children in Need' website.  Each work-out was 5 minutes long and was made up of 5 different exercises with short rests in between.

The photos might be a bit blurry as we were constantly moving and working up a sweat!

We did star jumps, mountain climbers, jogging on the spot, high knees and lots of other exercises too!

 

We have worked together as a class to write a descriptive riddle.  Can you guess what is is about?

What am I?

I wriggle and jiggle.

I love to dance.

You might see me flickering in the distance.

My colours are red, orange and yellow.

But sometimes I turn blue and purple when I’m really angry!

I can make people scream and run away when I out of control.

But when I am safe, you can hear me crackle and pop.

I can make you cough and my smoke can make you lost.

Beware … I can hurt you because I burn!

What am I?

 

By Trevone Class

During storytime, we have also been reading stories and information about London.

We have read 2 amazing stories, which we recommend to read.

'A Walk in London' by Salvatore Rubbino and 'Katie in London' by James Mayhew.

Although these books were both stories about adventures in London, they also gave us information about the city and helped us to imagine what it may be like to live there!

We recognised lots of famous landmarks, like 'Big Ben', 'The Tower of London', 'The London Eye' and 'Buckingham Palace'.

 

We are reading stories by the famous author, Julia Donaldson.

At the end of every day, we have stroytime.

We have been reading and listening to stories written by Julia Donaldson.

Take a look at some of the stories we have read.

Alicia

My favourite story is 'The Troll'.

It has got wicked pirates and the monster steals the gold.  It's exciting!

Harley

My favourite story is 'The Gruffalo'.

All the pictures give us lots of information and I like the song.  The pictures have funny faces.

Oscar

My favourite story is 'A Squash and a Squeeze'.

I like it because it's funny with all the animals in the house.

 

Leo

My favourite story is 'The Gruffalo's Child'.

I really like the pictures of the child as he's really cute!
