Well we have had a busy week in Class 1!

On Thursday, we made our own delicious smoothies and the children were very grown up with trying different flavours, even though some of them thought they may not like the taste! Most of the children were pleasantly surprised by the yummy flavours that we could taste and enjoyed trying new things! 🙂
The children recognised the different fruit that we had:
Strawberries, blueberries, banana, mango, kiwi, raspberries and mixed summer fruits (blackberries, blackcurrants and redcurrants).
As a class, we decided on the different smoothies that we were going to make. This is what we came up with:
1. A smoothie with EVERYTHING in it!
2. Mango and kiwi
3. Mango, raspberry, blueberry and strawberry
4. Banana, blueberry, strawberry and summer fruits
This is how it went down!…
Smoothie no.1:
“Ooh this tastes fruity” – Edie
“It’s fruity tooty!” – Esmay
“I think it is yummy scrumptious!” – Benjy
Smoothie no.2:
“It tastes like rubber” – Jet (he wasn’t too impressed with this one, but tried it anyway!) 🙂
“It tastes a bit sour” – Jack (great adjective Jack)!!
Smoothie no.3:
“I think this will taste fantastic!” – Evie
“It tastes like banana soup, it is super duper!” – Gil
“It is the best in the whole wide world!” – Isla
“It is SO SO yummy!” – Henry
Mrs Cooper and I agreed with the children – it really was deliciously sweet and tasty!
I wasn’t surprised when nearly all the children wanted more of this one! 😉
Smoothie no.4:
“This is a bit sweet” – Layla
“It tastes like strawberries” – Kitty
So I think it’s safe to say the smoothies went down well!
Earlier on in the week (on Wednesday), we re-visited the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’. We had some very brave children who dressed up and turned into the characters from the story! They really impressed me with how much they remembered from the story and the acting was superb! – Ready for the stage I think 😉
In Phonics we have been practising our letters and sounds and have learned some new sounds…. f for fish, l for lollipop and j for jelly! We have also started to explore words with double letters in such as ‘sell’ – double l, ‘sniff’ – double f and ‘fuss’ – double s. In Year 1, the children have been learning the tricky a__e sound in words such as ‘lake’ and ‘made’. All the children are working hard and doing well!

Well done to everyone in Class 1 for having such a fabulous week! I’m looking forward to seeing what next week brings us! 🙂
