Some children work in Room 15 with Mrs Norton and Debbi.
Some children work in Room 14 with Miss Ward and Mrs Pelham. This group starts each writing session all together in Room 14. We all talk about what we want to write about and share ideas. Then we split into groups - some of us stay in Room 14 and others go to Room 13. We all do our very best writing and enjoy having a variety of different people to work with. We have to manage ourselves well and ensure we are making good choices about where the best place to work is, who are good work mates for us and also follow the instructions and expectations in different places.
We have enjoyed trying this new approach - we keep making changes until we get it just right.
This week we watched a short clip about an acorn growing into an oak tree.
We have spent time talking about what we see, think and wonder when we watch the clip.
Today the children who worked with me wondered how big our own oak tree is - we estimated how many children it would take to get our arms all the way around the tree. Then we tested it out! We discovered we needed ten children to hug our oak tree!
Then we went for a run around the field to search for acorns - it's not the right time of year to find many so we collected as many as we could find. We know in a few weeks there will be thousands of acorns!
