Class 1 – Dragonflies 2014-15

Dragonflies’ Class Blog Week beginning 6th July

“We have been doing Billy’s Bucket, we saw the shark and the mermaid” said Harry. In the story of Billy’s Bucket, lots of things appear in his bucket and come out into real life! The children loves using their imaginations to see other things in their bucket too.

“I saw a squid and a mermaid and an octopus” said Robyn.

“I saw a mermaid and a dolphin” Said Charlotte.

“I saw a whale and shark” said Chester.

“I saw a whale shark” said Bafana.

The children have done some fantastic writing to go with their wonderful ideas. I can really see the exceptional progress they have been making, with 3 children on gold for super writing this week! Wow!

In maths we have been using “scales” said Ava.

“We have been weighing stuff outside” Layla told us.

We have been practising using the words heavier and lighter, as well as trying to get things to balance too. I wonder if any children can help their families do some weighing at home? Perhaps bake some cakes!

We have had a super week despite feeling tired and worn out. We are having so much fun and still really love our under the sea topic. The children know some fascinating facts about sea creatures.
