Another week closer to Christmas πŸŽ„

Today in 1/2, we have been getting very Christmassy because our naughty elves arrived! Bill and Bob were caught making snow angels in the classroom and they even left us a special surprise on the tree πŸŽ… We can’t wait to see what they get up to over the next few weeks!

This week, we have been working hard on our quiz booklets to show off everything we have learnt so far. In RE, we learnt about parables and designed our own stained glass windows. In music, we learnt how to follow the beat and worked on some new Christmas songs. We also had a lot of fun in science as we chose suitable materials to keep Humpty Dumpty safe 🍳

See you on Monday πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

Year 3 have been to the forest school today to help them with their art work. We have been learning about a technique called frottage which is used by artist Max Ernst. This involves taking rubbings of different textures then carefully tearing the paper into different shapes to create a final composition. The forest school is an amazing place to find a range of different textures and the children created some excellent pieces of art!

A week in Year 1/2 πŸ’­

This week, we have worked hard in English to produce setting descriptions. In maths, we have started to add numbers using a number line. In Science, we got the classroom messy and tried to find the most absorbant materials to help us clean up. In DT, we started to build the sails for our windmills. We have also started to get into the Christmas spirit with some Christmas craftsπŸŽ„

What a lovely week!

On Wednesday, Washacre Primary School will be taking part in Positive Noticing Day. We are also encouraging parents to get involved by following the guidance taken from the website below https://www.positivenoticingday.com/homeadults

It starts with you

Positive Noticing is simple, practical and highly effective. It is an everyday relational strategy, any time, any place. Positive Noticing is different to being nice. It is deliberate and it will build your child’s confidence, resilience and self-belief.

Think about how many times you have positively noticed your children in the last 7 days. I don’t mean just saying thank you or β€˜that’s great’. I mean taking a moment to reflect their positive behaviour back to them. To notice something that matters to them. Calmly, quietly and privately.

Today aim for 5 moments of Positive Noticing. Get one in before school, maybe one between pick up and tea/dinner time, a couple during your evening routines and some at bedtime.

Here are some ideas to get you started:
● β€˜I noticed you washed your plate, that’s really helped me this morning, you are very thoughtful, thank you’
● β€˜Doing your homework without me asking shows real independence. I love the determination you are showing’
● β€˜You are so good at sharing with your sister. You are such a kind person.’
● β€˜I noticed that you were really kind to Theo at school. That made me really proud of you’
● β€˜Thank you for putting your clothes in the wash basket. I notice you are following the routine and remembering it perfectly. You are really trying and I appreciate it. '

Frequent Positive Noticing means that the best behaviour is celebrated in your home every day. You can positively notice one another, it doesn’t have to be an adult/child interaction. It’s a wonderful habit to encourage for all the members of your family.

If parents could share their 5 positive noticing moments either on Facebook or via our email address [email protected] then you could win one of five copies of Paul Dix When the Parents Change books.
