My School, My Class,  My Teachers










Welcome to Smart Squad! We had the best week together and look forward to a fantastic year ahead.

Here is a breakdown of what we got up to this week.

Writing and Phonics: In Grade R we work in a writing book. We decorated the front cover of our books and practiced writing our names in our books. We also spoke about what we got up to over the December holidays. The Squaders traced over the words “My Holiday” and then drew a picture of their fun December break!

Maths: We went over our numbers and played a number recognition game. We then did a colour by number owl picture which will be used for the front cover of our Maths book.  We also traced over the numbers 1-10 in our writing book.

Life Skills: We spoke about our holidays and what we got up to. We also spoke about the theme of the week and went over the classroom rules.  We spoke about why it is important to follow these rules and how these rules can keep us safe.

Creative: Once the children had completed their front covers for their writing and Maths books, we did a self-portrait. We also reflected on our first day of school and did a hanging art piece of: Me, My Finger Prints, My Teachers and My Classroom.  

It has been a great week!

See you all next week, have a lovely weekend!
