Welcome back to Preston Street School and I trust you have all had a lovely break over the holidays. Firstly can I just say a big thank you for the lovely gifts I received , not necessary but very kind and appreciated!
On your marks, get set, GO …… this term has set off at a great pace and we have lots of miles to cover!
Last week saw us continue work from week 1 one developing a growth mindset. To believe in ourselves and have a go! We worked on tasks and activities related to a story I read called ‘ Giraffes can’t dance ‘ which gave us lots of deep discussion. We also looked at all the things we CAN do and those we can’t do YET ! Pictures of our wonderful dancing giraffes to follow !
It was also our Friendship Assembly last Friday to end our week of work on anti-bullying.
The tasks we did made a big impact. Have a look at the pic collages and hopefully they will explain everything !
Toothpaste words …….
Other activities this week included looking at compound words and syllables in literacy along with ‘wow’ words ( great vocabulary and some revision work on sharing and number work adding on 10 and taking away 10.
