Our week of learning about Camping has begun. Today we started by putting up the tent. Miss Irwin put it up in the mud kitchen, she said if we are good we can have a go soon!
The rules are, we leave our shoes outside the tent. It’s lucky we have this rule, otherwise Miss Irwin wouldn’t have realised where half of the class were this afternoon. Can you guess where we are?
Today Miss Irwin and Mrs Hamilton went on the Nursery visits. So Mrs Arkle and Mrs Cross taught us some tricky Year 1 maths. We learnt about odd and even numbers. We learnt that odd numbers always have 1 left over after all the pairs are made up, we tried it on our fingers. We could show you if you ask us! Then we learnt how to share numbers and what happens if there is one left over! Miss Irwin doesn’t know we’ve learnt this, so we are going to surprise her after she’s finished all her visits!
Tomorrow will be hot, so we must bring our hats and be wearing our suncream.
This morning in phonics we worked on our blends at the beginning of words. Such as St, ch, th , the, star, bl, br, tr and had a go at writing words and spelling them with blends in.
If we say the words slowly and think about what our mouth is doing it helps us to write down all the letters in the blend.
Maybe we could try sounding out and writing some of these words at home!
Tree, three, blend, spend, trip, skip, creep, sleep.
We did also do some secret stuff which we can’t tell you about. But during secret work time some of us did find time to build some walls.
After lunch we had French with Mrs Oakes and she opened up her cafe again. This week she was selling ‘pain au chocolate’ . We had to colour in and cut our euros to go and buy the food in the shop. We used hello, thank you, please and many more French words we’ve remembered from over the last year.
After playtime we did some year 1 writing in year 1 books for Mrs Hodder, she’s going to be so impressed! 😀 but don’t tell her it’s a surprise!
Reminder to all Dad’s, this Friday is Father’s afternoon. We are welcoming all the Dad’s to come and join us for the afternoon, to have some fun, maybe even a competition!
If Dad’s can not come then Granddad’s, uncles or brothers are allowed as substitutes as we do know it’s hard for Dad’s to get time off work.
We welcome you from 1.30pm onwards until the end of the day.
