We have had a successful end of the year, with certificates for all the children presented at the end of our swimming session today. We will also be heading for the big pool next week, which will be the final week this year at Aqua Vale.
The BIG TALK this week will now be a piece of writing around The Secret Garden. We will write a poem imagining and describing the secret garden.
Imagine any garden you like. It is your own secret garden, so you have to be creative about why and how it is different and be able to describe it.
Write down, draw or act out what you see inside your garden, beyond the locked doorway. Think of 10 things you would find in a wizard's box and imagine instead, that these things are what you find in your own secret garden.
Try to make words rhyme and sentences full of describing words and phrases. Can you include alliteration, similes or metaphors?
Last of all, please, if any one could spare any time, during the school day, to come in and read with Saturn children, it would great. The best times for this would be; Thursday (any time) or Friday (any time). Please let me know.
Try to keep up with the reading over Christmas and let children read out loud to a family member or just talk about their book.
I am hoping to organise a maths investigation workshop in the new year, similar to the firework poetry session. I will post up news soon!
