Why is it important to do our home reading-Lots of reading during the holidays-

In Room 1 we did a lot of reading in the holidays. We each took home a yellow form and most of us bought them back to school with the list of books that we had read during the holidays. Mrs Greenham and Mrs Kelly were so pleased.

It is important to do our reading at home because:

It helps us remember and use what we did in class-

It helps us with our spelling and to be be able to read with expression

It helps us read fluently and to recognise words

It helps us sound through words

It helps us to look at the meaning of the story and think if what we are reading makes sense

There are so many reasons to do our reading !!!

All our reading lists of the books we read in the holidays.

Can you think of some other reasons for doing lots of reading at home.

Tuesday Club Day -Senior Cooking Club

Senior Cooking meets in the staffroom to cook with Mrs Greenham. We are all cooking for the healthy Cooking Club.

Our first cooking time we made stuffed baked potatoes. Once our potatoes were cooked we had to cut them in half.

We then scooped out the middle of the potato making sure did it carefully so we still had the potato skin to put the mixture back into.We mixed the potato insides with the bacon that Baden had cut up and cooked for us and also the spring onions that Candice cut up. We added a little bit of milk, cottage cheese and cream cheese. We had a good stir of all the ingredients in the bowl.

We had to watch and listen carefully to instructions so that we knew what to do

Mixing all the ingredients together

Once we had filled our potatoes skin with all the ingredients we sprinkled cheese over the top. 
We put these back in the oven to bake and warm up so that the cheese melted.
They tasted yummy and we had a big feast.

Our Science Experiments

In Room 1 we have been learning about making porridge and what happens to rolled oats when you add boiling water.

We thought about the story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" and had to make a hypothesis as to why Fathers Bears big bowl of porridge would have got cold before the other bowls.
We joined in with the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and now we know why they liked their porridge. We really liked ours. It tasted very yummy.


We went to the hall and had a great show to watch about Asthma. The presenter told us all about what
happens with asthma and when you get Asthma what you have to watch out for. He even had a "puffer" which came along and we learnt about the different types of puffers.

They sang and danced together and the whole school joined in. We learnt so much about Asthma and what to do if someone we know has an Asthma attack or even if it happened to ourselves. It can just happen too even if you haven't had Asthma before.
