We are really enjoying having Constable Ken come to school.

We are learning our address and phone numbers.
We have talked about our feelings too.
He will spend four teaching sessions with us.

On Friday we wrote a list of fruit and vegetables that we like to eat. We had fun being creative decorating a baby's bib and writing a simple sentence about them using the sentence rules we are learning.

Creativity ...

We have made self portraits.

They are so good that they have been put into a frame.

Independent Learners...

We are learning new words. We can work by ourselves.

Fantastic Friday.

Today everyone helped to bake a cake. Our cake wasn't too hot, it wasn't too cold, it wasn't too sour - it was big, it was round and it was delicious!

Our Rocket is finished.

Our rocket is ready for blast off!
We took it to assembly to share with the rest of the school.
It is awesome and we are very pleased with it.

It is on display in our room so please come in and take a close look.
Everyone added to this construction and we enjoyed using our sponge painting techniques to finish off the nose cone.

Check the astronauts too. They have helped us to learn to count back from 10.
Now we are ready to count back from 20.

St John visit.

St John visit on PhotoPeach


We are learning about primary and secondary colours.
We are also trying a variety of painting techniques.
We have used sponges, fat paintbrushes and thin brushes.
Our paintings needed a background first. Next we added the people and the wooden gate.

The Rocket

We have taken our car apart and we are now transforming it into a rocket! We are working through the process and thinking how to add the right parts. We have visited the library and have taken out a selection of books to help us with our design.
Take a look at our photos of progress so far.

Check out the boosters!
