The children have been writing instructions this week and have written the instructions for how to make raita. The children then tested out their instructions by making their own raita. We even dipped some chapatti in it which we have been dying to try since reading the story; Chapatti Moon.
We had a lot of fun in Maths this week using the Numicon, dipped in paint to print different amounts. The children were able to print different pieces of Numicon then add them together to find the total. It was very messy but very enjoyable.
This half term we have been reading a book called the Jolly Postman.. The children have learnt all about writing letters and we thought it was a good idea to write letters to our families to let them know how we have been getting on in Year One. The children made plans or their letters and wrote draft letters from these plans. We edited them to make them better and then wrote up a final draft. Our favourite part of the process was licking the envelope!
As a class we all walked down to the post box, carrying our letters. We were all very excited and enjoyed walking with our friends. We then posted the letters to our families. When the children came back to school, they were all excited to tell me about receiving their letters through the post and I sure they were just as excited at home!
