Key Skills 13/06/14


Think about the different topics we have covered so far this year. How many different things can you remember? How many different activities can you remember that we did in order to learn them? When did we do them?

Have a think of as many things as you can! I expect you to think of at least ten different things and I think some could get a lot more than ten.

Literacy/Creative Curriculum:

Yesterday, Thursday 12th June, we began our new topic: Our World Our Future. We had a fantastic day making different things, dancing, celebrating and having a fun carnival.

For key skills this week, you are to:

Write a report about the whole day as if you are a reporter. Think about the vocabulary used throughout and it should be written in a mature style as if it is a real life article. Obviously we are looking to make it sound like the fantastic day that it was!

You will need to think about:

  • How did you feel throughout the day?
  • What were the highlights?
  • What did we do throughout the day?
  • What would the reader want to know about the day?
  • How it is written: is the vocabulary throughout mature?

  1. Yesterday there was a great carnival, it was loud I couldn’t hear myself talk. After a while we all started moving and I was so exited then 1 minute later we was on the soft nice field. All of a sudden I got one quick glance at how many people was doing it, I was amazed. I also saw the parents and they also looked really exited but not all of them unfortunately and if you are asking how I know this I saw there expressions. We also went round all of the field which was fun but tiring at the same time.I was really happy when I reached the end because it really made my day. the day was amazing I just wanted it to happen again and again that’s how great it was.

  2. The Carnival

    On Thursday, all SDS children arranged to have a carnival. At the beggining , we had to make our own maracas and hand bands . Then we got a bit complicated… Making our own hats. I designed mine so that I look really cool. I put a lot of silver strips in and at the end I was looking like a girl!!!!

    Next , at 2:30 pm , we went out on the playground and started the carnival. Loats of parents came wanting to see their children and all I could say is that I know the parents really enjoyed it and had fun.

    At the end of the day, we all were ready to go home and the parents were really impresed an really enjoyed it. This was my best day at SDS (Simon De Senlis)
