Poem of the Week

We have been learning about onomatopoeia - Words that imitate natural sounds or give a sound to an object. e.g. 'buzz' went the bee, 'crackle, crackle, crackle' say the big red flames, 'bang, bang bang' shouted the fireworks, 'Quack!' honked the duck...
I wonder if you can think of some other words. Nursery Rhymes use them a lot!
Post some for us to share.

Fire, Fire

Clang, clang, clang,
Says the fire bell.

Fast, fast, fast,
Say the strong fire fighters.

Dress, dress, dress,
Say the strong fire fighters.

Whee, whee, whee,
Screams the loud siren.

Crackle, crackle, crackle,
Say the big red flames.

Squirt, squirt, squirt,
Goes the fire-fighters hose.

Ssss, ssss, ssss
Says the put-out fire.

Home, home, home,
Say the worn-out fire-fighters,
By Wendy Clarke

Q is followed by a u!

Our letter of the week is Q. We have been learning that words that have the letter q at the beginning are followed by the letter 'u'.

Look at some of the words we have come up with:

Queen Elizabeth

I wonder if you can think of any more words that begin with 'qu'? Post them on our blog!

Fantastic Performance!

Today students from College Street Normal School came to RSS to showcase some of their amazing singing, music playing and dancing. It was very exciting to watch - the children were fascinated and inspired by the talented students at CSN. They were amazing! See here for a few 'snapshots' of the performance.
