Cooking & Food









Cc and Ff

Can you believe that we only have 1 week left of school!

We started off this week listening to each other’s weekend news. We introduced this week’s theme: Cooking and Food. We spoke about what our favourite food is and how we think it is made. We discussed the different food that we have during Christmas and other special occasions.

Writing and Phonics: This week we focused on our “ub” and “ug” word family. We learnt our new words and did the “ub” and “ug” worksheet. We also did our “ub” and “ug” word family sentences without our writing cats. We are so proud at how beautifully they are writing all on their own!

Maths: We recapped addition and subtraction and did some practical examples before practicing addition and subtraction sums in our Maths books. We also recapped mental mathematics using our fingers to count.

Life Skills: We spoke about appreciating food and those who feed us. We spoke about why it is important to not waste food and to be thankful to those that make our food.  

Creative Art: We continued with our Christmas art to get us into the holiday spirit and practiced graduation too!   

It has been a great week.

See you all next week.


Such a beautiful evening!

What a success our Graduation was! We hope you loved it as much as we did.

We are so proud of our Smart Squad children and will miss each and every one of them!
