Year One Learn About Belonging

Year One have been learning all about one of our school values Belonging. First we read the book Beegu by Alexis Decon. Which is about an alien who crashes her space ship on planet Earth by mistake. She feels worried and nervous as she’s in a place she knows nothing about. Then she meets some school children who help her settle in and soon she feels as though she belongs.

We decided that we might be able to help her feel as though she belonged too so we practised writing some speech bubbles with kind things we might say to her.

We then used our neatest handwriting and wrote them in our new English books.

We thought very carefully about our capital letters and finger spaces as well as out full stops!  We are really excited to find out more about Beegu as we continue our learning based around belonging.
