Light & Dark

Our topic at the moment is ‘Light & Dark’, and today the kids were tasked with making descriptive poems about either the sun or the moon, to the tune of ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’. Some of the vocabulary used was amazing and built on all the research and information we’d learnt together.

Pretty catchy!



Today I gained a better understanding of the fear and dread that Ofsted strikes into teachers’ hearts.
It’s a natural phenomenon that turns otherwise perfectly brilliant teachers into nervous wrecks. Many of the colleagues were planning on putting in 12 or 15 hour days, all to make sure their work was in order.
I’m looking forward to the day when I get to be involved in an Otsted inspection – see what all the fuss is about!

In the meantime, made some AMAZING comic books with the kids in our Phonics choosing session, I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of children’s imagination, such good value!
