I hope you all enjoyed the break, you definitely seem fresh and full of energy for your new term of learning 🙂 It is lovely to be back with you. 

This week the whole school has been studying the same book ‘The Storm Whale‘. 

What happens in the story?

What would you do if you found  whale on a beach? 

What was your favourite part of the story? 

We have started an exciting special project all about plastic pollution in our oceans. We started with a 5 minute drawing exercise where Platypuses drew what they thought our oceans looked like; there were lots of wonderful pictures full of happy sea creatures and waves. We then watched some videos and looked at some pictures that showed us what some parts of our oceans and seas sadly look like…full of plastic.

What does plastic in the oceans do to the animals that live there? 

How does the animals eating plastic effect us (people)?

Talk with your adults and do some research (finding out), what can you do to reduce the amount of plastic going into our seas

It will be Green Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Tuesday. Please only bring in toys when it is your colour team’s turn for Show and Tell as they can easily get lost 😦

Homework is due in on Mondays, I have sent home new elephant reminders with the updated day on. 

Please wear your PE kit on Monday and make sure all your belongings (school uniform, PE kit, book bag etc.) have your name in/on them. 

Have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, talking and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!
