This Autumn term our topic is

Wonderful Weather!

We talk about how we feel in class. We can have lots of different feelings. We drew hearts and painted them in different colours to represent these feelings.

We labelled these areas and mixed the colours.

We had such a good time on scooter day! Those of us who had never scootered before were so much more confident by the end of the session. That includes Mr Godfrey!

Life in Lockdown - the insiders story!

I would like to offer a challenge to you all. If you are interested in being published, we have had the idea of publishing a Great Bentley Family book entitled 'Life in Lockdown - the insiders story!' The motivation behind this idea is to firstly capture this unprecedented moment in history but also in true learning style to continue to offer inventive and exciting ways to enable our children to continue with their 'writing', We have identified that  for some this is the hardest area to motivate. It is my belief that we can self publish and therefore everyone that sends some writing for the book WILL have their own page.

 

If you are interested we would ask that the children take the challenge of writing from one the following genres:

-a diary entry - explaining how they feel about 'a day in the life of lockdown'

-Info text on how to stay safe. e.g a poster about how to wash your hands properly etc 

-letter - a letter that they may write to a loved one whom they have not got the chance to see

-poem  

-Instructions on how to navigate social media (Zoom etc and how to stay in touch)

-A poster outlining the importance of internet safety

 

Something for our younger Great Bentley family members

-A text message sentence that they would send to someone they can't see

-A speech bubble containing a piece of advice for staying at home

-A speech bubble with a message of hope

-A poster (Same content as above)

-A poem Maybe using the letters from RAINBOW to structure a work or a line.

 

I would also like to run a competition for the front cover. The prize will be a copy of the book and a 'rainbow'.

It would also be nice to intersperse each page with pictures of children or of rainbows (in what ever creative form you decide). Therefore if you would like to send these also you will be very welcome. The whole ideas is to capture the history and encourage the writing, even if it is just a sentence. For younger children these sentences are just as valued as a larger piece of text. Therefore, please can we focus on the writing as well as the art. 

 

Please can you send your finished pieces to head@greatbentley.essex.sch.uk
