Bluebirds made a kindness circle and all said one kind thing to another pupil. This activity made the children feel happy, grateful and proud.
Karly – Declan said I was friendly
Shriya – Reva said I am good at maths
Charlie – Amudha said she likes my handwriting
Ayra – Aizah said my outfit was cute
Corban – Bethany said my shirt is cool
Lexi – Tatenda said I am a kind person.
Bluebirds shared the kind words they had received this week. Half the class have been asked how they are by another child.
Corban – My sister told me I looked nice when I got changed last night
Maya – When I was peer mediating today, a Year 2 child told me I was kind today and taught her new games well.
Aizah – My Mum said my hair was pretty this morning.
Isla – Jacob asked if I would like to share his cushion in ERIC time.
Tatenda – Someone complimented my hair today.
Amudha – My Mum said I was beautiful today.
Bethany – My Mum said my uniform looked smart for school
Bluebirds have been looking at the process of soup making from growing the vegetables to how it ends up in a tin.
They made their own vegetable soup using the ingredients that they chose e.g. sweet potato, croquets, and green beans.
The children peeled, cut, and cooked their soup until it was ready to eat.
Most of the children seemed to enjoy the tasting of the soup the best!
Bluebirds learnt about the physical, biological and chemical effects of weathering on different types of rocks. The class set up an experiment and made predictions about whether limestone, chalk, pumice and brick would go darker on the surface once water had been added or whether it would dissolve and predict if the rock would be heavier when we reweigh them tomorrow.
Bluebirds discussed how they feel when they receive a present. After lots of talking about giving presents, they noticed many of the feelings are the same. It feels good to give someone else a present! The children talked about their best ever present too.
Reva – My very best present was when I received a whole set of books called Rainbow Magic.
Maya – A bracelet kit.
Joseph – A knight costume with boots and a helmet.
Corban – A magic set!
Alex H – A guitar
Everyone then thought about what gifts we can give to others that do NOT cost anything. There were some fantastic suggestions. The children remembered the sunflowers they planted in Year 2 and realised they could grow lots more sunflowers once the seeds develop and give people a free plant! Bluebirds also remembered last year, there were times when we couldn’t even hug because of Covid.
In Bluebirds classroom yesterday some new visitors arrived. The children who had the tidiest tables before lunch, arrived back to their desks to find a Tidy Teddy had magically appeared! The bears left a note explaining they only come out when everywhere is neat and tidy and advised children to be respectful and take pride in their classroom. They suggested each table should work together as a team as it makes tidying up so much easier. Today there were five bears as everyone had worked readily hard to keep their area tidy. Keep it up Bluebirds as they will not stay if we begin to get untidy! Well done to everybody!
Bluebirds explored how a folded mountain is formed.

The children in mathematics are representing numbers to 1,000. They used the dienes, counters and digit cards.
