Making Jelly

Yesterday we made jelly as we are learning about the letter j. We learnt what sound it makes and brainstormed some words that start with j.
To make jelly, we had to follow a recipe. We learnt that a recipe has different steps that we need to follow.
The hardest part was waiting until today to eat our jelly! We made strawberry, coca cola, and blueberry flavours.

Letter of the Day...

Today we learnt about the letter a. We learnt how to identify the letter and we also learnt what sound it makes. We thought of some words that start with a. Together in groups we worked hard to find the letter a and pictures beginning with a in the newspaper. Fantastic team work Room 1!

Sunflower Art

This term we are learning about the life cycle of plants. Pop into our class to see our beautiful sunflower art we created using our hands and feet! We labeled the leaves, stem, flower, and seeds. Miss Ashworth thinks the artwork is fantastic and is looking forward to some more arty activities and hopefully growing our very own sunflowers later in the term!!!

Handwriting fun in Room 1...

This week we have been experimenting with various ways of writing. On Monday, rather than handwriting in our books, we used chalkboards. On Wednesday, we first drew the letter h and c numerous times with chalk, and then painted over the top with water as you can see in the pictures. We love handwriting in Room 1. We are learning how to form lots of new letters! Keep up the great work!

Writing in Room 1...

This week in Room 1, we have been writing some fantastic stories about our Mums and Dads. We have been learning to write at least two sounds that we can hear in each word, and remembering to put a finger space between each word. Here are some photos of us hard at work...
