Tough day at the office...

Today, Friday, it's another tough day at the office! Ms Peck has even been replaced... that's what happens when you go to university instead of school!

Ella and her healthy lunch

Everyday, when Ella comes into class, she shows us what she has for lunch. Today I couldn't help but take a photo... perfection in a lunch box! Sandwiches, fruit and yoghurt! Way to go Ella!!

Hard at work during reading...

Today we have worked so hard! After reading we had a 6 page Explain Everything to complete. We completed cut up sentences and learnt how to record our voices as we read them back to each other. Next was word work where we learnt our new HFW. On the last page we created our own picture from the story. Phew...we worked so extra hard... and the neat thing is we did it all on our own!

Our first gymnastics lesson!

Room 19 had a great amount of fun last Thursday in their first gymnastics lesson of the year! We began by learning lots of different warm up shapes; the tuck, l-shape, pike, straddle, front support, diamond and back support. All these stretches ensured we were well warmed up to get involved in the two challenging and fun gymnastics circuits. We are very lucky to be able to have 8 weeks of this programme, so keep posted to see what else we learn!

Maths and jobs at home...

Was great to see the boys hanging out the wash and girls swatting the flies all in the guise of ordering and identifying numbers to 10.

iPad Safety in Room 19

Maths and necklaces...

Who said Maths and necklaces don't go together? We were able to create these beautiful necklaces by threading our numbers 1-10. Thank goodness we were able to use our iPad to take a photo of our finished products!

Drawing time...

After reading we drew a picture about our favourite places to play. We even knew how to colour them in using the different sized pencil nibs and colour palette.

We're up to 4!

After 3 days of school Room 19 now has 4 students. They have all learnt how to take a photo on their iPads and use lots of tools in Explain Everything. Happy, happy class!!
