We have just finished our first full day and our first week at school! Woo Hoo!
We are so brave and grown up Miss Irwin gave us all a mention in celebration assembly today ( our first assembly). She said we were all so good that she couldn’t pick one person to get a celebration badge because we all deserved one! 🙂
This morning Percy had left us a treasure hunt like we asked him for in our letter. We put on our waterproofs and wellies and set off to find our treasure.
Then after playtime we had phonics. We practised our songs again. Miss Irwin said if we did them really well she would show us our new sound that we are learning on Monday. We learnt the song for ‘t’, but we really wanted to do the lesson! Miss Irwin asked us if we had ever written a word before? Most of us hadn’t. She said she would promise we would if we learnt ‘t’ and that our brains would grow and they would feel hot because they were on fire for being so clever!
We practised writing our letters, then Miss Irwin showed us what happens when you put them together. If you put s-a-t together and blend them you can write sat! So then we tried and we all wrote our first word on our own ‘sat’! Our brains were on fire! 🙂
This afternoon we planned our new topic. We shared our ideas of things we would like to learn about but in the end we decided on ‘999’. We like the idea of learning about Firemen, ambulances and the Police. Our plan has gone on the wall, next week we are going to make our role plays!
At the end of the day we had our first assembly and we did really well to sit and listen.
Paddington Bear went home tonight for the weekend. Miss Irwin chooses who he goes home with and it has to be someone who has been extra special all week and followed the class rules. Today Miss Irwin chose Nathan.
We are all very tired and deserve a good rest this weekend. Well done Class Jonah.
