Rhyming challenge

Today’s challenge is to try and find as many different rhyming words as you can.  The rhyming word is a nice easy one to start.  The word today is bat. 

Remember when you are rhyming, the end pattern at stays the same and the letter or letters at the beginning change.

To make it a challenge see if you can score as high a score as possible.

  • Score 1 point for three letter words
  • Score 2 points for four letter words
  • Score 3 points for words that are larger

Post your final score up here and I will put up a list of rhyming words up on Friday.  I will also put up a new rhyming challenge tomorrow.

Scholland Farm Soup

 

We made soup using the vegetables from Scholland Farm.  First we washed the vegetables ready for peeling.

Then we carefully peeled the carrots and parsnip. We peeled away from us to help keep our hands safe from harm and we did it carefully.

We added the onion to our pan. Mrs Inkster chopped that for us and it made her eyes water!

Then we chopped some carrots and parsnip.

Some of us watched while others prepared the vegetables.

Then we chopped and added some neep .

Next it was the broccoli and cauliflower.

Then we put the soup on to cook.  We decided to have vegetable soup and lentil soup using the vegetables too.

While it was cooking we were being good listeners and following instructions for our activity.

We had a break and tried some raw carrot and raw neep.  Some of us had never tasted raw neep before and it was delicious!

Once the soup was cooked we tried the lentil soup first.  We thought that was delicious.

Then we tried the vegetable soup. Some of us didn’t like it but some of us like it so much we had another bowl!

It’s been a busy morning in our class but we really enjoyed using the vegetables that we got from the farm and we all agree that it tastes great when we know and have seen where the produce comes from.

P1/2’s Top Tips for New Entrants!

This week we have been thinking about how we can support the new P1 pupils as they get ready for school.  The class thought back to when they started their school journey and we talked about all the things the new entrants may be unsure of or worried about.  We drew and wrote down some pieces of advice for them and our work will be made into a book for them to look through before the holidays.  We hope it helps them feel confident about starting school!  Here are some of our suggestions.

 

ERIC Time

We have really enjoyed our reading sessions over the past few weeks.  The children have got much better at choosing suitable books and have tried really hard to persevere and sound out tricky words.  They enjoyed reading different types of books…but the Oxford Reading Tree stories were still a firm favourite!  The P1 pupils loved having the chance to spend time reading with their buddies.  They were very patient and supportive.  A huge thank you to our volunteers who came in each week to help us.  You were a great help and we appreciate it!  Happy holidays and….keep on reading!
