2S: Superstars! Keep checking the blog to see what is new ... what will you find?! :-)

New vocabulary for the children to learn and use

Published Monday, September 27, 2010.

The children were introduced to some new vocabulary today, which we will be using at various times throughout our daily lessons. They are linked to the way in which the children's work is marked and the IB Learner Profile, which will help the children grow and develop as individuals and as a class. Please take some time to have a read of the words and perhaps talk to the children about what they mean - the more we reinforce them the better the children will understand them and think about what they are doing and learning ... everywhere!

Tickled Pink - this relates to some great work the children have done; it will be marked with a pink highlighter.

Room to grow - this relates to the improvements that can be made to a piece of work, marked with a green highlighter.

Principled - children know what is right and fair

Reflective - children know what they did well and what they can improve on (and how)

Knowledgeable - children have explored the world around them

Caring - children think about other people's needs and feelings

Balanced - children have a healthy body and mind

Communicators - children know how to tell their ideas

Inquirers - children ask questions and want to learn new things

Open-minded - children respect different ideas and beliefs

Thinkers - children decide how to solve problems

Risk Takers - children are not afraid to try new things

We went through the words this morning as the laminated posters went up at the end of last week - the children were very interested to know what they were and listened well. The words and terms will be used from now on and hopefully the children will become more aware of their meanings as we use them.

Many thanks.

Mr. M.

Sentence Substitution Game

Published Friday, September 24, 2010.
Last updated: Friday, September 24, 2010

Here is a game where the children have to insert new words to a sentence - and it still has to make sense!! They can change it round as much as they like, but when they have finished it needs to be understood. There are many different sentences to try and many different combinations to find.

Have fun!

All About Me Project

Published Friday, September 24, 2010.
Last updated: Friday, September 24, 2010

1S welcomed many of their parents into the classroom to work on a project to do with our topic of "Growing, Growing, Grown". The purpose of it all was to get the children talking about how they had grown since they were born and what they could do now that they could not do before. This will all aid their understanding of who they are and how they change - they will also be able to hopefully link it to the animal and plant kingdom as well. We also discussed what the children would like to be when they grew up and answers ranged from artists and scientists to astronauts, teachers and nurses. Wonderful aspirations!!

Enjoy the photos from the morning.

"Jobs Done" and "Changes Made" around School

Published Tuesday, September 21, 2010.
Last updated: Tuesday, September 21, 2010

The children have been walking around school with Mrs. Clare and Mrs. Rashi looking at all of the changes that are going on and all of the different jobs that the grown ups do to help us. The children did a lot of talking about what they saw and explaining which things were their favourites. We have some very observant children with eagle eyes and some excellent communicators who were able to give good reasons for their thoughts.

Please enjoy the photographs that were taken on their way round the school. Perhaps you could make a comment about them, or about your favourite changes or the jobs you appreciate being done at school the most!

Many thanks, Mr. M.

I wonder if the kids can get back to their class without getting lost by now, haha! Great to explore and learn more about the school!

Dragon's Den Phonics Game

Published Friday, September 17, 2010.
Last updated: Friday, September 17, 2010

Another fake or real word game where the children need to use their phonic knowledge and skill to work out what the words say and then feed them to correct dragon. Can you make them breathe fire when you play?! Make sure that you select Phase Three at the moment as these are the sounds we are learning about.

Have fun :)

Alphabet Ordering and Sound Matching

Published Thursday, September 16, 2010.
Last updated: Friday, September 17, 2010

The children were challenged to work as a team to first of all put all of the muddled letters into the correct order. Once that mission was accomplished, they then had to find objects from around the outside area and from inside the classroom that matched the sound of the letters they were concentrating on.
