Welcome to Trombones!
Welcome to Trombones Class. We are hardworking bunch of 28 learners supported in our work by Miss Evans, Mrs Cookson, Mrs Webster, Mrs Nelson & Mrs Potter. We need our P.E. kits in school on Thursday for our P.E lesson. If you attend the sports club on a Monday after school, please come into school in your P.E. kit. On Tuesday afternoons we are taught R.E. by the wonderful Mrs Cookson.
A big thank you to our parents, carers and people from home for helping us with our spellings, reading and Times Tables Rock Stars homework which is set on Fridays.
We know that mistakes happen when we learn and we take a Growth Mindset approach to learning – keep putting in the effort and learning from mistakes and we will succeed! We know the power of the word YET!
World Book Day!
Today was World Book Day!
As most of the children are still at home we had a different day than usual.
As a school we learned about different authors. Our author was Jeff Kenney.
We celebrated books and reading by taking part in lots of fun activities..
* We dressed up while we did our activities whether at home or in the Hub.
* We took part in a live event on the WBD website https://www.worldbookday.com/events/
* We took part in Jeff Kenney activities.
* As a bit of fun we took part in a character-based craft activity using a potato!
This week Christmas has arrived at TCP! We took part in a "Mental Elf" danceathon for the charity Lancashire Mind who help families and young people in Lancashire, working on mental health. Thank you to everyone who was able to send in a donation.
No Outsiders- My Princess boy
This week Trombones, Trumpets and Xylophones have read the book "My Princess Boy" as part of our work with the No Outsiders curriculum. The book is about a boy who likes to wear dresses and how he is supported by his mum, dad, brother and school. We discussed how Dyson (the princess boy) represents diversity and how we live in a diverse country. We talked about how what somebody chooses to wear doesn't reflect what is important about them but is a part of them expressing their identity. It came up in discussion that Dyson could be gay, or he could just be a boy who likes wearing dresses. We generated ways we could make Dyson feel welcome at our school and created displays to celebrate diversity.
On 20th November Trombones class were very fortunate in that we were able to learn and play Quidditch! Sadly, we didn't get to ride broomsticks but we did get sorted into Hogwarts Houses and play with Quaffles, Bludgers and a Golden Snitch (a.k.a Miss Evans!) The rain didn't dampen our spirits and we had a great time learning the rules and playing the games. Big thank you to all involved in making this happen.
This week has been Remembrance Week in school. We have been learning about the War Poets and writing our own poems. In Theme, we have cracked codes and learnt about the invaluable work of Alan Turing, including how he was treated after his hard work.
AUTUMN TERM LEARNING- A kingdom United
Our first theme this year is A Kingdom United! We will look into the Geography of the United Kingdom and explore the past as far as Anglo-Saxon times to discover how our Kingdom came to be United!
