For topic we were reading Jack and the Beanstalk. We listened to different stories that had different endings for the Giant.
In week 4 we tried creating our own story of Jack and the Beanstalk using a story board.
First the children drew their pictures, then with the help of Mrs A and Chontal, they wrote their story.
It was a wet day when we were writing these stories and I think that had an influence on the weather conditions in the stories......
The children were also working on art work relating to Jack and the Beanstalk.
First they had to paint the background, then they needed to colour in their characters and glue them onto their background.
Their pictures look amazing, so colourful!
In week 3 the letter was 'd' and the blend was 'ch'.
In week 4 the letter was 'b' and the blend was 'sh'. However, no one brought in anything to share for 'sh'!
Looking forward to next week which is the letter 'p' and the blend 'cl'.
For strand math we are working on shapes. For last Fridays activity we chose 7 different shapes, put them together to make a picture, then drew an outline around the shapes. We then passed the outline and our shapes to another classmate and they had to try and put the shapes together inside the outline.
Lots of laughs all round!
Arranging the shapes
Drawing around the shapes
Fitting the shapes into the outline
Room 1 have been working hard on keeping our environment clean. Every Friday afternoon we do a walk around the school and pick up rubbish. We want our school to look appealing for visitors and to be a great place to play and learn. The children noticed that some bag bays were a bit messy, so they sent out a challenge to the whole school for the tidiest bag bay!
And the winners for week 4...
Room 1! Yay!!
