Newgate

Can you ROAR like a dragon?

We have loved this week in Newgate! Our very first day of this half term was filled with excitement with a visit from Darron Rogers, the author of Shout Out Boo 2! Darron read this story to the children and we all joined in with the key phrases throughout, it was such a fun experience! The fun didn’t stop there as Darron completed a rhyming poetry workshop with the children, they each repeated rhyming words and moved like the animals or objects within the rhyme. Thank you for your contributions towards this visit and we hope you all enjoyed your personalised signed copy!

Our learning about our new narrative Zog, is in full swing! We have each designed our very own golden star that Zog can achieve to help others beyond his classroom. The children wrote descriptions and focused on the target of applying capital letters, finger spaces and full stops independently. In other areas we have designed dragons looking at the texture of their skin and representing it by using a sponge technique when painting.

In Mathematics this week, we have learnt to tell the time with O’Clock and Half Past. The children have loved playing what’s the time Mr Dragon in their child initiated play. We are so proud of their understanding that they even all achieved a blue certificate on the same day!

Thank you for an amazing first week back!
