Because we can’t send home scripts for the children to practise I am uploading the script here for the children to practise with.

English Group - Taylor, Kieran, Alaina, Eve, Freya Taylor/Kieran - We have been learning to write accurate sentences. Alaina - This week we have been adding prepositions to our sentences. Eve - Prepositions tell you where something is happening. [Children move the penguin] Taylor - The penguin is behind the door. Freya - Now, the penguin is by the South pole. Eve - Now, the penguin is next to the South pole. Kieran - The penguin is in front of the door. Alaina - Finally, the penguin is on the ice-berg. All - We have also been making sure each of our sentences always have capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and no extra capital letters. Art Group - James, Tilly, Louie, Brooke, Imogen, James James/Tilly - In art we have been learning different art styles. Louie - We all chose an animal and painted it in an abstract way. Tilly / Brooke - We looked at pictures by Kandinsky to give us ideas. Imogen - We chopped our animals up into smaller parts and coloured them in. [Show audience our pictures] Louie - Here are some more abstract pictures that we have done in class. Tilly - I like abstract pictures because they are really bright. Brooke - I like my picture because I like how the arm looks. James - I like my picture because I like the colours I chose. Maths - Lucas, Sonny, Freddie, Oliver, Olivia Lucas/Sonny - In our maths we have been learning to count on and back. Freddie - This is called addition and subtraction. Oliver - Or adding and taking away. Olivia - We have been practising different methods to help us count accurately. This is how we count on accurately. [Oliver and Freddie count on in twos] [Sonny and Lucas count on in fives] [Sonny and Olivia count in tens] Olivia - This is how we use the rods to solve a problem. Freddie - This is how we use the Numicon. All - We can also do this in our heads [Children model counting on to solve the problem] Oliver - We also play maths games to help us get more confident. Freddie - My favourite game is called Eggs on Legs because it is fun. Olivia - My favourite game is hit the button. It helps me get better at my number bonds to 100. DT - Seren, Finley, Elodie, Jacob, Issy Seren / Finley - We have been learning to design and make things. Elodie / Jacob -We made these moving animal pictures. Seren / Issy - We learnt how to design. Our designs had to be good enough so that any could make it. Elodie - We learnt different skills like how to cut the slot in the middle. Jacob - We had to add a foreground [pause] and background. Finley / Issy - Finally we learnt how to evaluate. This means say what we thought was good and what we would change next time. Elodie - Here is my evaluation. [Read from book] Jacob - Here is my evaluation. [Read from book] Finley - We also made cupcakes. All - They were yummy! Seren / Issy - We did this to learn how to write instructions using time words. Jacob - We used these in our story writing. PSHE - Ben, Matilda, George, Seb, Albert Ben / Matilda - In our PSHE lessons we have been learning about our learning. George - We have been thinking about what we can do when we get stuck. Seb - In class we call this the pit. Albert - Some of the ways we can get out of the pit are using the learning walls, talking to our learning partners, trying it a different way and being resilient. [Children give examples of when they got stuck and how they resolved it]
