In English this week, the children were introduced to our new text: Way Home. They used their prediction skills to justify what they thought would happen based on the front cover and the blurb. The children unpicked the detail within the illustrations to ask questions about the story. This is powerful text that will begin to unravel and open up opportunities for further discussion.
Our PSHE focus this term has been One Childhood One Chance. With the start of a fresh academic year, the children refocussed on the Chilton Way and our rules and values. Teachers reintroduced the Zones of Regulation to help the children gauge - and help deal with - their feelings. They made a fantastic artwork relating to being individual within a team that will be able to be seen into he school hall.
Your Love to Learn task this week is to prepare a presentation (no longer than a minute or two) about yourself that you will present to the rest of the year group next week. We want you to show courage and show off what positive steps you aim to make in Year 6. As such, teachers will be looking for children to take up the privilege roles of House Captain, Sports Crew/Captain, Reading Ambassador or School Librarian. Why will you suit these roles? What skills do you have that would make you a strong candidate? If you wouldn't like these roles, tell us about yourself and explain your targets for the year. Be prepared to present this on Thursday afternoon.
Love to Learn is due in on Wednesdays every week and we will look at them by Friday. If you know you will struggle with this deadline, please speak to your class teacher early in the week so they can help you.
Have a lovely weekend and well done on a great start to the year!
