It’s been a bit of a strange week in Crew Wilson as we have had to isolate! But we haven’t let that stop us, we’ve worked really hard from home on all of our learning! We’ve been meeting online every day to check in with each other and it’s been great to see everyone’s smiling faces every morning. We’ve had a few technical difficulties along the way but Crew Wilson have been very resilient, even if it did take us a few days to learn how to mute our microphones! You’ve all worked so hard this week and should be massively proud of the independent work you’ve created! We’ve done lots of Praise/Notice/Wonders with our work this week, it’s been lovely to hear how much praise our crew have for each other, they’ve bonded so well this year and have so many kind things to say!
We explored the story ‘Mr Wuffles’, it was a bit weird because it only had pictures and no words! We had to work out the story just using the images and really enjoyed discussing the aliens we could see. We designed our own alien and their home planet and wrote some descriptive sentences to ‘sell’ our planet as a holiday destination. I was blown away with the work created at home, everyone worked so hard! Some of us even created our own alien language!
We have also been writing personal reflections this week, thinking carefully about our achievements from the year and deciding what we need to work on for Year Two. It was great to hear how honest the crew were, and even though some were feeling nervous about moving into a new class, by the end of the lesson we were feeling much more confident and ready to overcome their new challenges in Year Two!
I can’t wait to be back in the classroom ready for our final week of the term! It wasn’t too bad working online and we quickly got used to it, but it’s not the same as being in the classroom together! We’ve missed out on some fun things in school while we’ve been isolating so to make up for it we’ve got lots of exciting things planned and a few tricks up our sleeve!
See you all on Monday!
