Adjectives and specific verbs....

We are learning about adjectives and specific verbs in a bid to lift the ability to write rich sentences.  Here is some of our work.  We did a bit of drama before we wrote a variety of sentences using different verbs.




 Here are our adjectives we chose after going on an adjective hunt in class.


Space... Reach for the Stars!

We have been learning about Space.  Here are some of the facts we remembered!




We have also talked about astronauts and why they need protection in Space. Here are all the Room 1 Space Ship Commanders!

Hand writing

This term we are going to work hard on our hand writing skills.  When writing we need to make sure we start each letter in the right place. If your child is able to write the letter 'c' the right way they will find it easier to learn the following letters: o, a, d, g, q.  We call that letter 'Caterpillar C'.

All letters start from the top except 'e' and 'd'.  You will find helpful hints in the Home work books. Your help would be much appreciated!

There are many free apps that you can download for your child to learn the correct letter formation.  One of the apps that I like is 'LetterSchool - Learn to write'.
