We still had a bit of time left before our final assembly of the year.  We danced, played games, listened to stories and jokes and shared Christmas wishes.  What a lovely way to end the year!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2018!

Welcome to the students of 2018!

A great big welcome to our newest students starting in 2018 who visited us this morning.  We were learning about shapes, so they all made dinosaurs using different shapes.  Here they are.  Welcome to Lily, Heidi, Jude, Ari and Marco!

A special visitor today...!

Our special visitor today was a bird!
We sketched, we planned and we wrote.
We had to use adjectives. Here is our inspiration and our work!
We were also learning about simple sentences, capital letters, full stops!

The week that was..

...and what a beautiful week it was. Gorgeous summer weather, playing touch with parents, playing in the sand pit, climbing trees... and working hard in class.

We have been looking at patterns, making patterns and of course robbing stories from somewhere to retell them with beginning, middle and end! Thanks Mrs Hunt for helping us!

 Designing a pattern for awesome undies!
We made some awesome patterns too...
