Tomorrow is the last day of half term, and the last day of Book Week!
I love Book Week. It's all about getting children to enjoy reading, which I think is fantastic; and it's all about fun reading activities, which I like. I liked it when Miss Lucey read a story to the class (so did they, and so did she!) I liked it when I read stories to children in the library. And I REALLY am looking forward to tomorrow - Year 1 will have four teachers visit them to read to them, and I will be going to Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5. But I will be back in Year 1 by 10.15.
This week has been a wonderful week. Some bad things did happen - I had a cold on Monday, and it was raining today - but lots of great things happened. Here are some pictures of them!
The children learned about graphs in Maths this week. You can see Shu and Ji Hyeon are representing the number 2 in a graph, and Patricia the number 7.
And here are the graphs they made from this information.
In Science lessons, the children helped the Easter Bunny to learn about pushing and pulling. Here they are learning about pulleys.
Miss Lucey read the magical story 'Rory MacNory' to the children at the end of each day this week.
Because this is Book Week, Year 9 and Year 7 students came, on Tuesday and Wednesday, to read with Year 1 children.
It was very exciting to see how well the potato plant has grown. It has started to grow flowers! We invited Reception class to come and look at it, and talked about its growth.
The Easter Bunny very kindly sent the children presents - dyes, colours and instructions on how to make their own eggs!
Year 1 all brought in eggs, and drew coloured patterns on them.
We took the eggs and dyed them pretty colours to make Easter Eggs.
