Characteristics of effective learning

Our new display board, that shows the characteristics of effective learning has been set up with a theme of the Mr Men characters. "I keep on trying, like Mr Bump". "I have my own ideas, like Mr Clever. "I am proud of what I do, like Mr Happy".

The children will be working towards these targets during the course of the year. They will be recorded inside the children's individual Learning Journeys.

In Literacy we have been reading the story of Ganesha's Sweet Tooth.

The story of how Ganesha broke his tusk is one of the most popular legends in Hindu mythology. We have been drawing and writng our own representations of the story. We have also linked it to repeated patterns in creating and colouring giant sweets with repeated colour patterns using two or three different colours.
