After reading the Kenyan letters and their questions today was our day to write some questions. 

First we went on a question mark and full stop hunt in the secret garden. We were very good at remembering question marks. 

Then we practised writing them  


After that we had a good, hard think about what questions we wanted to ask the Kenyans. Then we had a Kenyan style writing lesson. We had no electricity and sat in rows. We wrote on lined paper like the Kenyans, using our small handwriting. Rberimg to segment and bend, to use super sentences and put a question mark at the end! 
Our writing was AMAZING! Miss Irwin is reading them tonight, to decide if we deserve anything extra special for all writing super questions on our first attempt. 

This morning we also did our first attempt at Mayday dancing. It was tricky at first learning how to dance up and down, banana peel and spin round! But for our first go we were very good 😃. 

The adults weren’t bad either! 
This afternoon we practised our new sound ‘ear’. It’s quite tricky but we are trying to remember it because it’s also a word. We wrote it in a sentence to show Mrs Hodder, it said- “o have a year 1 brain.” . Mrs Hodder was very impressed. She said she can’t wait to have us in her class next year if we are that clever.  

We checked on our beans after play to see if they had grown. Our beans had swollen up in size and their shells were starting to split.  





It was very exciting, we didn’t know the beans would swell up! We might check them again tomorrow! 

Explosive shape dancing!

This week we have come to the end of our Dance performances. We have managed to develop and perform two dances.

Our first dance was based on fireworks. We practised doing different fireworks then we put them together into a dance. We started as an unlit fire then we turned into flames that grew bigger. We then turned into fireworks where we exploded, whizzed, banged, spun and even misfired!


Our second dance was based on the shapes we’ve been learning. We did it to the youtube video we sing to in class.shape song.

We learnt how to make shapes different ways, small, big and moving with our bodies in different ways. We did shapes on our own and in groups and pairs.
