This week in Geography we went on a learning walk around Eckington. We saw lots of fantastic buildings that link to our learning theme, Amazing Eckington. We saw a shop, post office, school, church, library and swimming pool.
This week in Music we have been continuing with our learning about rhythm and pulse. Last week we practised clapping the pulse to the song ‘Hey You!’ by Joanna Mangona. This week we used those skills to play instruments to the pulse of the song.

This week in computing we have been learning how to safely log on to Purple Mash. We used our own private usernames and passwords to log in and then created personalised avatars and saved them to our profiles.
This week in science we continued our learning about plants by having a go at planting some bulbs, beans and seeds. We will be observing the growth of the plants over the next few weeks and recording this in a bean diary.

We have had a super start to the year in Penguin Class!
This week we began our new learning theme, ‘Amazing Eckington!’. We used Google Earth to find Eckington on the globe and then compared it to other places we had visited in the world. We learnt that Eckington is a small village in England which is part of the United Kingdom.
Every Thursday we have our class visit to the library. This week we all chose a book and had some free time at the end of the day to read in the sunshine. Our class VIP’s chose a home time story by our spotlight author Eric Carle. They picked ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. Ask your child to retell the story to you, I’m sure they would to tell you all about it.
