This term has been a very busy and productive one for Pine class. Through activities across the curriculum, the children have developed their learning attitudes and demonstrated commitment, confidence, curiosity, enthusiasm, independence and respect. We have been fortunate to have a six week forest school programme using the outdoors to develop the curriculum for the children. It was great fun for both adults and children, carrying out activities such as making bread, creating environmental artwork and using a range of tools. Within Literacy, the children have proven to be extremely creative during our poetry unit, learning about different poetic techniques and writing a range of superb poetry.
On Monday 27th November 2017, Pine Class confidently presented a Class Assembly to the whole school, visiting family and friends. The assembly was held to promote ‘Road Safety Week’, within our School and local community. This year’s theme was SPEEDDOWN: Save Lives!
The children worked extremely hard to produce an assembly that was engaging, interactive (including audience participation) and thought provoking. The class ended the assembly with the reading of several thoughtful prayers, in memory of those who have lost their lives (or loved ones), in road traffic accidents.
The whole creative process enabled the children to develop cross- curricular skills and activities including: Speaking and Listening, Drama, art, PSCHE (team work) and RE (prayers).
The children should feel very proud of their confident and assured performance!
Pine Class is also looking forward to welcoming our new teacher, Miss Kinkead to St George's in January.
