No Pens Day

On Wednesday 5th October the whole school put their pens down for a day of speaking and listening activities. It was a challenge for both teachers and children alike, but everyone had a good day and developed some important skills. 

Some of the activities included:

  • Making bread.
  • Maths problem solving using straws, bulbs and cakes.
  • Poetry recitals.
  • Cutting up phrases to identify parts of sentences and good vocabulary.

 

Have a look at the links to speaking and listening guides and activity packs for parents below:
