Greys class 8th April
Date: 8th Apr 2022 @ 6:16am
Well, the end of term has finally arrived and we finished it off with our annual egg roll on the Common. What a term it has been!
This week in Greys class we have been telling the time to the hour and half hour and even moved onto quarter to and quarter past, please continue to practise this regularly at home with an analogue watch or clock.
In Literacy we have been looking at tongue twisters and used alliteration to help us think of past tense verbs to use in sentences with a name that we had chosen, this was trickier than we realised as we had to use verbs that ended with the suffix -ed when in the past tense. On Wednesday we then worked in groups to perform a poem to our classmates and then recited tongue twisters in pairs.
We listened to a piece of music by Benjamin Britten entitled Storm and used charcoal to create pictures of a stormy sea, perhaps one like Christopher Colombus may have sailed and hopefully not one like Mrs Hawkins might have on Saturday on her crossing to Jersey.
We had lots of fun making our Easter cards and we had our termly DT day on Tuesday, when we made our moving picture books. We learned new words such as slots, sliders and levers and were very pleased with our finished books. Once they were finished we invited Peppard class in to share our books with them.
On Thursday we had our much awaited Doughnut Day as promised to us by Mrs Hawkins and whilst we ate them, we listened to the story of Arnie the Doughnut.
Thank you to the book reviews this week.
Over the holidays if you could continue to read when possible and practise your times tables and number bonds that would be amazing.
It is with mixed emotions that I write this final blog as my time at Peppard has come to an end. Whilst I am obviously excited about our new adventure I will be so sad to leave Peppard, which has been my second home for the last 8 years.
The children have been amazing and have made my job an absolute joy, and between all of the Peppard community we have created some lifelong memories of my time here and I thank you all for that. It has been an honour and a privilege to teach these wonderful children who have come into Greys class with smiles on their faces, eager to learn and always having a tale to tell, brightening our days. Thank you so much to all of you for your support and kindness during my time in Greys class and for all your kind words, cards and gifts over the last week.
Peppard is a very special place to all who are fortunate to enter into such a wonderful and unique community of which I am so very proud to have been a part of and on that note I will bid you all farewell and wish you all a very Happy Easter and hope you enjoy your time with your families.
