The Tunnel

In guided reading, we have been learning to make inferences and predictions.We imagined we were the girl from the story The Tunnel by Anthony Browne and inferred how she would be feeling before she crawled through the tunnel and discussed what she might be thinking. We then crawled through the tunnel and imagined what it would be like at the other end using clues from the story. We thought about where we were, what time of day it was, what we could feel, smell and hear. We had a lot of fun and all made very good inferences and predictions. Everyone was extremely keen to find out what happened next and see if their predictions were correct.

Acting Out Guy Fawkes

We have been learning about Guy Fawkes and why he is remembered. We worked in a small group to act out the story of the gun powder plot and then drew story maps and wrote messages as if we were Guy Fawkes. The children were very interested to learn about why we celebrate bonfire night and loved learning the rhyme.

SAFEGUARDING

CEOP – Stay Safe Online

ceop

The internet can be great fun. You can chat to your friends, play games and learn about new things. But sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like.

If this happens, you must remember it’s not your fault.

TELL AN ADULT YOU TRUST if you are upset or worried about something that has happened to you. They can help you to report it to CEOP.

If you feel in danger phone 999 to speak to the police.

They will make sure you are safe.
