During our English lessons in year 3, we have been reading Scaredy Squirrel. Mrs Moore put the book in the library for the Bluebirds to enjoy in ERIC (Enjoying Reading In Class). A group of year 3 children got together to share the book!
For Year 4 Robins, every Tuesday morning is , “Talking Tuesday”. We allocate time to discuss important things that are happening in the UK and around the world. Having this time to read, watch and discuss is great opportunity for an inquiring young mind that is unbiased and provides the background to stories that children might have heard about outside of school.
Last week we looked at all kinds of news including
1. A restaurant that employs robot waiters in the UK.
2. Fires that are happening in California, USA.
3. Fears and worries pupils might have coming back to school.
4. The future of “Flying Cars”
We also read our junior news leaflet. We discussed that Marcus Rashford, the Manchester United and England footballer, has set up a group to tackle child food poverty in the UK.
Here is a video of it.
