Sponsored Skip.

Over the past half term we have been learning to skip so we can take part in a sponsored skip to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. We all enjoy helping others less fortunate than ourselves and this will be the third charity we have supported this academic year. Today we skipped for 10 minutes. It was very hard but we were determined to complete this challenge.

How much money have you raised for the British Heart Foundation this year?

Fruit Salad

Today we made a fresh fruit salad with mint. It was delicious. We chopped different fruits up and added freshly chopped mint. As we cut up the fruits we talked about how they were the same but different. We also talked about why fruit is good for us. The fruit salad was delicious. The mint was scrumptious!

Which fruits would you add to a fresh fruit salad?

Learning To Segment And Blend To Read.

We really enjoy reading and stories in class 1. As we are learning our phonemes we are growing more confident reading short sentences. Today, we worked in pairs outdoors. We ran to find a question written on paper then, after reading it, sorted the questions into sets of questions where the answer is ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

How do you read unfamiliar words?
