Our first month back in school is almost over! We have all settled into our new class and are enjoying first class so far. Here are some pictures of the fantastic writing the boys and girls have done this month:

We can’t fit everyones pictures into one post but during the year each child will see their written work displayed on the blog at least once so keep checking back 🙂

We went to the school library on Wednesday. Each child chose a book and they will read this book over the week. These books should be brought back into school next Wednesday so that the children can exchange them for a new book. Please mind the books as they are school property.

A good tip when choosing a new book is the five finger rule. Open the book on any page and start to read. Every time you come across a word that you can’t read, put up a finger. If there are more than five fingers up by the end of the page, then the book is a little difficult for you at the moment. Choose another book and come back to it later in the year!
