Today in Amber class we held our first poetry slam. The children read a selection of poems and decided which one they liked the most. Everyone participated in reading their poem before the class. The children democratically voted for the person that they felt gave to best overall performance. Who will win our next poetry slam?
In Amber class our reading nook has become a well loved area of our classroom. Across Year 1 the children are developing their skills to: Understand vocabulary Make inferences within a text Predict what may happen next Explain what their book is about Retrieve information in order to answer questions about the text Sequence the events
On Tuesday the children from Amber class had a fantastic time in the forest. The children collected as many different leaves as they could find and identified what sort of tree they were from. Afterwards, their comments were “I love forest School!”
