Our Focus Poem for Autumn 2 



Last Thursday,
A bone thief,
Entered my home,
Came to my room,
And stole my arm’s bone...
“Give me my bone back!”
I screamed at the thief,
"I need my arm's bone,
Like a branch,
Needs a leaf!
I use all my bones,
To keep me alive!
I need 206!
Not 205!
Give me my bone,
It’s calcium rich,
When I've got a big ball game,
I need bones to pitch!
Supporting my body,
Protecting inside,
Where heart, kidneys, lungs,
Where organs reside!
Give me my bone back!"
I yelled at the thief,
And finally he gave it,
What a relief…
He gave me my bone back,
And left without harm,
Now all the right bones,
Are in my right arm...

Talk for baking

On a Thursday and a Wednesday for 6 weeks one group will be working with Mrs Andrew and Mrs Kelley in an intervention called talk for baking. They will learn how to make either cakes, biscuits, pizzas, pancakes. They will learn a verbal script of how to make the make the dish from a visual map. They will then work on writing an instruction text in English.

Talk for writing

In KS1 we use a tool called talk for writing to provide the children with the skills they need to tell and write stories as they move up throughout the school. The children will learn to tell a story using a story map that we create together as a group. We will practise and practise telling the story until the children can confidently do it on their own. They will then write up there story and innovate using sticky notes to change and add to their story.


Schemas, or patterns of play, are seen in many children as they are exploring their world and trying to find out how things work. We plan sessions that take into account the children's schema's to ensure the session is tailored to their learning needs.
