Foundation staff are excited to share a new learning app with parents and families starting on Saturday 26th January. The app will be delivered straight to parents’ mobile phones and then after watching the video, parents can play the game with their children as many times as they like. The games are designed to support the development of language, concentration, bonding and resilience. We are looking forward to hearing how families get on!

Danube and Zambezi enjoyed working with Stacey from Phoenix dance today. The children worked in groups to create a sequence of movements which reflect the words of the poems. Next week they will add rhythmic movements to create a finished dance. All our classes will be working with Stacey this half term and it will be really interesting to see all the different dances we create.
We have enjoyed talking about, and reading our class novel ‘The Iron man’ by Ted Hughes. We have read the first chapter already and have been developing out reading strategies by asking questions, making connections, visualising and re-telling the key points in the text.
We have also started the first draft of our art work - look out for the finished product.

On Thursday, we attended Leeds East Primary Partnership Debating Competition. We had been practising our speaking and presenting skills in class and had become excellent at arguing our point and trying to persuade our audience. Our debating team presented their argument opposing ‘Every child should stay in education up to the age of 18.’ . We showed excellent use of emphasis and body language and used convincing emotive language to win the debate! Well done to our team and also all of Amazon for their hard work in helping our team.

Children who have put in particular effort in reading at home and completing their Reading Diary to a high standard, were rewarded with an inflatable bungie rope session. Everyone had an exhausting, invigorating session trying to pull over their opponent and collect all their tokens first. Teeth were gritted, arms pumped and bodies flew everywhere! What a great way to celebrate effort in reading!
