 This week in Suffolk

 

Week beginning Tuesday 20th September

 

The children were very rested coming in after a bank holiday weekend. We kicked off with writing some poems about either stars, the moon or the sky. The children were given the choice of a haiku style, free verse or a acrostic poem. The children really enjoyed this activity and they all wanted to share their poem in front of the class. They also had their PE lesson based on football which looked full of skills and enthusiasm. We are starting now to plan a diary entry based on a girl in our current school book, 'How the Stars Came to Be.' We have also been learning about how humans can affect habitats as well as natural events. I was blown away by the children's interest in the topic and how they have retained this information from last week.
