Throwback Thursday


I've only joined in with this link up once because I haven't been blogging for that long but as I see so many people are heading back to school right now, I thought I would re-post this Wordless Wednesday post from last month as it seems very relevant! It is all about New Beginnings!
Thanks you  The Teachers Desk 6 for hosting!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway at the bottom of the post for a chance to win a set of these vocabulary building products!

Here we go:

It's been a while since I've linked up with Christina at Sugar and Spice for Wordless Wednesday so I'm excited to join in again this week!

While I haven't even started the holidays yet, I'm still thinking ahead to the new school year and planning what I will do the same and do very differently (must must must keep on top of my marking and tidy desk next year)!

I was looking through some old photos of displays and this one caught my eye:

It's linked to our New Beginnings PSHE unit. The kids write:

 - One actual thing they would take with them from their current school to their dream school on the green leaf

- One tangible 'dream' thing that would be in the school on a red leaf (lots of swimming pools and ipads on these!)

- One intangible thing we would see in their dream school on an orange leaf (kindness, honesty etc.)

- One thing that would not be in their dream school on a brown leaf 

We then take the leaves and add them to the tree to make a great display!

I've been thinking about what my dream classroom will be like in terms of these leaves. 

My question for you is - what would be in your dream school or classroom and what will definitely NOT be there?

  1. A lovely display - how nice to have enough space for a board other than Lit - Maths - Science - Humanities! I'm sure the children really worked hard knowing their thoughts would be on display for all to see - it really makes a difference and well done you for creating such a wonderful tree and background :-) Special Teaching at Pempi's Palace

  2. We have what feels like 100 boards to fill in the corridors so that's where this one is. My classroom is tiny this year so I can only have the basics in there!
