The Last Chocolate

We ended up with a problem in Onyx Class this week. It was Valentine’s Day so we did lots of Maths using some chocolates. The chocolate really helped us as we were able to see how many we were taking away alongside the number line. We were all looking forward to a chocolate on Friday as we had been promised by Miss Parker and Miss Morris.

On Thursday we decided that it would be kind to give our chocolates to Garnet Class when we sang them a Friendship song on Friday. Some of us weren’t too sure to begin with but after we talked about it we decided that it was the right thing and although it wasn’t the easiest thing we wanted to be kind to Garnet Class.

On Friday we went to get the chocolates to take them with us as we went to the Studio to sing our song. But……. image

What were we going to do??? We couldn’t give Garnet Class one chocolate!

We ended up leaving the Studio without giving Garnet Class any chocolates at all. Even though the lovely songs had cheered us up a bit we felt a little bit sad. We went back to the classroom with only one chocolate.

Then we had an idea…..image

Some of us still felt a little bit sad on Friday afternoon because the rest of the chocolates still hadn’t come back but we knew we’d done the right thing giving Miss French our last chocolate. We talked about how it was difficult but the fair thing to do.

Then, right at the end of the day, ………..image

Everyone was very excited that the chocolates were back and that we’d done the right thing. Everyone went home happy, including Miss French 🙂

What have we been learning? 

  • to think of others before ourselves
  • to make up and sing our own songs
  • to make decisions which are fair even if they are difficult

How can you continue the learning at home? 

  • make up your own songs using familiar tunes, 

eg. If you want to be my friend, clap your hands, 

If you want to be my friend, clap your hands, 

If you want to be my friend and you really want to play, 

If you want to be my friend, clap your hands.

  • include your child in some decision making, e.g. when handing out biscuits how can you make sure it is fair? 
  • encourage your child to do things for other people, e.g. picking up something that someone has dropped on the floor or letting someone have a turn before them.

Attendance Superstars

During our first ever full time half term in school, we had a great attendance record.

We won the Attendance Trophy for the best weekly attendance in the whole of FS and KS1 a couple of times.

We also won the Punctuality Trophy for the least lates in a week for the whole of FS and KS1 a few times.

Miss French and our teachers were also really proud of us when we found out how many children in Onyx class had 100% attendance for the first half of Autumn term. Can you believe 17 out of 29 children came to school every single day?!? That’s brilliant. A huge well done to all these children…

And also to Jenna who also had 100% for the first Autumn half term 🙂

If you come to school every day for a whole term then you get to go to the special 100% Attendance Disco. For the Christmas 100% Attendance Disco,  Father Christmas often makes an appearance. All the children above still have their invite- they just need to come everyday until Christmas to keep it.

Dont worry if your child has had a day off, we start again after Christmas and the children can work towards the Easter 100% Attendance Disco.

You will have had a individual letter with your child’s attendance on this week. Please ask if you have any questions.

We were very excited this week when two very shiny trophies arrived in our classroom! We had won not only the Attendance award for FS and KS1 but the Punctuality award as well.

Miss Parker and all the other teachers were very proud of us. We’re hoping we win it again next week and every week! Miss French has told us there’s a special surprise if we get the best attendance and best punctuality for the half term.

Keep coming to school everyday on time everybody!
