Hello Opal Class,
Wow! You have completed one whole week in Year 1 and you are already absolutely amazing at it! You have taken to the new routines like ducks to water! I am already so proud of you all!
We have been looking at a story called 'Once upon and ordinary school day' and we have been inspired by the teacher Mister Gee and his imagination ideas. In class we looked at an image and listened to music and then did a shared write of a short story about it. The children were unsure about letting their imaginations run wild and were really restricting themselves (they thought I was crazy when I suggested the tiger was roller skating) Please help me awaken their imagination...
Look at the image with your child and get them to tell you (verbally) or draw what they think would be happening. For example: the octopus is dancing and singing to Lady Gaga, whilst the turtle is blowing bubble gum bubbles.
Another alternative would be to play some music to your child and ask them to draw what it makes them think of.
If you would like to email me their ideas you can. This isn't home work it is just for fun and to let the children see imagination is key!

Welcome to Opal Class!
I hope you enjoyed your summer break during this strange and uncertain time! I enjoyed spending extended time with my 2 children and I am now back to school and ready to be part of your Year 1 learning journey.
When you arrive tomorrow things at school will be looking a little different and we have new guidelines to follow but our classroom and outdoor learning areas are set up and waiting for you to enjoy them! I thought I would upload some sneaky preview pics so that you can have a sneak peak at what to expect.
I look forward to seeing you all in the morning.
