My last day before Maternity Leave
I wanted to take this opportunity to say how much I’ve enjoyed teaching your child and beginning Year 1 with them. They are a pleasure to teach and I feel very lucky to be their teacher.
I would like to thank you and the children for allowing me to have such a lovely 12 weeks with them and I can’t wait to return and be their teacher again.
We had a great party on Friday afternoon celebrating our time together.
Thank you for my lovely gifts me and the baby have been spoilt!
See you all soon

We took part in 5 different activities to understand the story of Squash and A Squeeze better. We hot seated the old lady, wise man and the cow and asked the characters questions about the story. We used puppets and stories to re-tell the story. We made our own house which was a Squash and A Squeeze. We also role played using the farm animals.
Our T4W text is a Squash and a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson. We experienced what a squash and a squeeze is. In groups we had to put as many things in a hoop as we could in 10 seconds. Then we could see what a squeeze the Old Ladies house felt like. We wrote down the numbers of how many items we could fit in the hoop. We went back to class and then wrote down different adjectives to describe something small.
Class 1 have been learning about Ourselves. We had great fun measuring each other with cubes and seeing how many cubes each part of our body was.
Here's some photos.
This week we went on senses walk around school.
We used our hands to touch, our ears to listen and our eyes to see.
We used adjectives to describe the senses we used.
