To finish off our work on writing recounts for the year, the children have written reviews of what they liked about this year and what their wishes are for next year. They are a very honest account of their likes and dislikes and we hope you enjoy reading them and chatting more with your child about theirs. Continue reading
Today was a day of celebration in our classroom. Mrs Knipe set the challenge that if everyone in the class finished the Premier’s Reading Challenge before the deadline we would have a celebration afternoon. Not only did we finish the challenge well ahead of time – we were also the first primary class to be completely finished!!
So today we celebrated. Everyone brought along comfy clothes, snuggly blankets and soft toys and we took over the library for the afternoon. The library was already fantastically decked out for book week and Mrs Koenig and Mrs White said we could use the torches to read our books in a really special way. The highlights of the afternoon were reading some old favourite stories (there is a great video of some of us reading Where is the Green Sheep), getting recommendations from friends about new books we might like to try and of course Mrs Knipe’s treat of hot chocolate and marshmallows.
Here are some photos of us having fun reading at our well-earned celebrations
