Ok so not everybody shared my enthusiasm at returning to school from the Christmas holidays. Let's be honest though we can only do so many late nights and lie ins, play so many games and eat so much chocolate before we yearn to be getting up early to go back to work / school, to be given work to do and to eat lovely healthy fruity snacks..
Just me then? ;)
To be slightly more serious though, the first week back after Christmas is always a toughie but Class RL have been SUPERB! There were a few bleary eyes at the start of the week (sorry everyone) but we all settled back into the routine like slipping on a pair of comfy slippers.
There has been a lot of work 'behind scenes' this week as we have been organising lots of different groups and activities so I am afraid there aren't as many pictures of daily classroom life as I would like. There are some pictures of the children's first lesson in ball control (some are a little blurry as it is quite hard to capture moving targets!) and a few extra bits from here and there.
Also, how could we miss 'bring a Christmas toy to school day'? Well, we didn't! All the children sat beautifully for a picture so they can have it added to the fabulous work that they are going to do.
Just a little reminder.... Please keep reading at home, I do know how super busy home life is but 3 reads in a week and you get a tick on the chart towards a GOLDEN TICKET. (Books are checked Monday's, Wednesday's and Friday's)
A GOLDEN TICKET is given out once you have 10 ticks and that means *drum roll* a free book of your choice (from the selection available).
The other two classes are beating us with GOLDEN TICKET winners and not that I am competitive (I am) but I want more GOLDEN TICKET winners so I will be asking the children even more than usual to try to read to a grown up or an older sibling (or any one at home). All you have to do is sign their reading diary so I know they have read and I can give them a big fat juicy book winning tick. Thaaaaaaaaaank youuuuuuuuuu
until next time...
