Over the last two weeks we have enjoyed the EYFS assemblies, where our youngest children confidently sang songs and gave us fascinating information about sharks and caterpillars. The picture tells story of Jack and the Beanstalk, combining pictures (can you spot the golden harp and coins?) and words. The children can retell this classic tale with expression and enthusiasm. Throughout the school, talk is essential to all our learning including writing. Year 1 excitedly explained their maths and I know from parents that Year 2’s watches have lead to plenty of discussions about time, and they are all now excellent time-keepers! Recently Year 3 have been learning about the Stone Age; there were some excellent discussions about how to construct shelters and the benefits of using particular materials - their advice included the perceptive, ‘Stone beds are definitely not very comfortable’. Earlier this week Year 5 and 6 were debating why Sir Francis Drake could be considered a pirate, it was lively and well-informed. Below is an example of a piece of Year 4 writing, it is easy to hear the author’s voice and shows how ‘writing floats on a sea of talk’. This evening our PGL adventurers will return and have plenty to talk about! Enjoy listening to our fantastic children ……
