Being in nature is good for the mind, body and spirit. Starting the day outside is a beautiful way for us to connect with our environment and each other.
WORD OF THE DAY – ‘HERE’
Mya: I am here.
Michael: Here I come.
Deeksha: Here is my laptop.
Gurshaan: Here is my Granny and Grandpa.
MATHS – SHAPE
We sang ‘The Shape Song’ and then discussed the different shapes we sang about.
What shapes were in the song?
We talked about shapes that are regular and irregular and discussed the properties of regular shapes such as corners and sides. We then engaged in a range of provocations to develop our understanding of 2D shapes and their properties.
We began prayer by singing ‘Hearts on Fire’. We then shared our own special prayers of gratitude.
Ebony: Dear God, My favourite part of the day was running with Emily. Amen.
Abel: Dear God, thanks for making the whole world and everything the planet needs and all the food we need. Amen.
Porsha: Thank you God for different countries and different worlds where people live. Amen.
Celina: Dear God, thank you for giving the whole school and all of my friends. Amen.
Mya: Dear God, thank you for the whole planet and the flowers and the trees. Amen.
Gurshaan: Thank you God for all of the food and for people not being sad. Amen.
LITERACY – FOCUSED LEARNING GROUPS

We explored the Uu sound and reflected on words we knew that started with this sound.
DIGRAPH ‘OI AND OY’
We explored this digraph through song and brainstorming words with an ‘oi’ ‘oy’ sound.
WRITING – WRITER’S WORKSHOP
FOCUSED WRITING GROUP – I CAN
Mrs Tropeano worked with a small group to develop understanding of writing and drawing with a purpose, as well as to write simple sentences using high frequency words explored through shared reading texts. Today, this group of children wrote an ‘I can….. ‘ text. They thought about something they can do, drew a picture of it and wrote the sentence ‘I can …..’.
We explored our provocations for the week, continuing and developing our learning.
