Procedural Writing February 16, 2011

Filed under: Our Work — Miss Dillon @ 5:44 pm

We have been working on procedural writing for a few weeks now. So far we have written three procedures:

  • how to brush your teeth
  • how to play a CD
  • how to make a cup of tea

We discuss the steps involved and then the children decide the sequence.

Take a look at their lovely work: (click on the photo’s for a closer view)

List of contact numbers for parents February 10, 2011

Filed under: News — Miss Dillon @ 7:58 pm

Last week I sent home notes regarding a list of parent contact numbers for the new class. A few parents thought it would be useful to have a list for sending out birthday invitations by text/ setting up play dates and so on. Anyone who wanted their details on the list will get the sheet tomorrow (it will be in your childs bag/ journal).

Thanks, Miss. Dillon.


Show and Tell Friday February 6, 2011

Sophie Jones recently visited South Africa and she brought in a fantastic project to show the class. We were amazed and very impressed by the effort and hard work she put into the project. It was a very interesting project and we enjoyed learning a little bit about Nelson Mandela too. Well done Sophie- brilliant work!
