It was lovely to be back together again on Tuesday, all the children seem to have grown and have healthy glows from spending time outside during the holidays. A lot of the first morning was spent discussing what we were up to during the holidays then we wrote all about them. Some were very long and detailed as the children continue to make very good progress with their writing.
We finished off our transport topic with one final lesson. Tess wrote us another letter and she left us a book about space travel. We looked at transport in the past, present and future. We especially enjoyed looking at how we might travel in the future, particularly seeing the ‘Bloodhound’ – a supersonic car, maglev trains, driver-less cars and rockets to allow us to travel into space as tourists. We designed our own methods of transport for the future, combining features from lots of different types of transport. Lily’s car can drive on rainbows, Isla Vereker’s car doesn’t need fuel, it uses a big battery that never runs out because it’s massive 🙂 All the vehicles were very good and they will be on display outside the classroom along with notes about the specific features of each one.
On Thursday we went outside on a Spring nature hunt. We had a checklist of things that we might see in Spring and worked with a partner, looking at how our school grounds are changing at this time of year.
Harrison brought in a certificate he received from a Swim program he did during the Easter holidays. His swimming teacher was very impressed with his breaststroke and how well he listened to instructions – well done Harrison!
We are looking forward to our busy week next week with two trips! Lets hope the weather is kind to us.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
P1B and Mrs Kennedy
