This week we were ever so excited to meet Nancy, AKA Super Gran! She will be helping us learn about the past and what it was like when she was a little girl. This week we had a look at her suitcase full of things that were special to her. Everything looked and smelt so old. We had to resist the temptation to try one of her favourite rhubarb and custard sweets!
We then got to work designing and building our own time machines to take us back to when Super Gran was a girl.
When she visits next week we will be looking at how houses have changed over the years. Maybe if you have time at the weekend you could take a local walk and look at and talk about the different housing in the area.
This week we have learnt the ee and oo long vowel sounds. Please practise these, and all other sounds, at home. Ask us what happens to our mouth shape when we make these sounds.
We have also learnt tricky words be and was and are becoming very good at spotting these in books we are reading.
Congratulations to all the boys and girls who received a certificate at this year’s first achievement assembly. We are so proud of ALL the children and what they have achieved so far this year so it was very difficult to pick 5 special people!
