Class 7 Mrs Trainor
It's the start of a new term in Class 7 and our main focus is to write simple sentences whilst remembering capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. As we are now becoming more and more familiar with the special ingredients that make up a sentence, we have now started marking our own work. We use pedagogy stamps and always try to focus on something new each time for example listening for sounds or even using finger spaces. Below you can see some great examples of the stamps being used in our fantastic writing.
Wondering what the stamps stand for? Ask your child at home, I am sure they can tell you what their target stamp is at the moment!

Our new area of learning in Science is 'Animals including humans'. Here you can see us> exploring one of our five senses. Can you guess what sense it is?We explored how it felt to be blind and got the chance to be blindfolded whilst having to work our way through an obstacle course. Some of us felt scared and others felt excited. We talked about the importance of our eyes and how they are very important to us. The children said that they felt lucky after the blindfold experience.
Mr Doyle helped us become superheroes and taught us all about what a first aider does. We learned things such as why first aiders wear gloves, how big the tongue is, how to bandage a finger up and how to check our friends blood pressure. You can see us below exploring. Take a look in our writing books to see the fantastic facts we managed to record!
