Entry Point - White Paper City
Our Entry Point for our IPC unit on 'Buildings' this week was a great success! The children worked together in pairs, small groups and as a whole class to make a city using just white paper, scissors, sticky tape and glue! It really tested their problem solving, design and creative skills as they worked out how to make and stick 3D buildings together. The children showed the personal goal of cooperation, while sharing the materials and working in unity to create their paper city.

Next week we will begin looking at buildings from the past.

We look forward to seeing you there.

With reading we have been concentrating on the CAFE strategy of 'Know Many Words By Heart'. We have been applying our Magic 100 words to the words we see in other contexts like books and signs. Next week we change our CAFE strategy to Questioning Owl - Ask questions as you read and 'Read good-fit books'.
In Handwriting we learned the letter 'w'. Next week we will learn 'x'.
You are practising honesty when you...
- say what you mean and mean what you say
- make promises you can keep
- admit your mistakes
- tell the truth
Next week's virtue - Flexibility
