Last week we learned all about sharks. We have learnt lots of fascinating facts through reading our book “Surprising Sharks”, completing our shark reading trail, reading shark fact pages and asking writing questions for Miss Coggan’s friend Ed, who works with sharks!
We labelled the different features of a book (Surprising Sharks) and a fact page.
Here we are enjoying our shark reading trail!
Ed the Shark Conservationist answered our questions.
At Russell Scott Primary School we strive to promote a love of reading. We asked the children what kind of reading areas they would like in their classrooms and and they came up with lots of fabulous ideas. We copied the covers of our favourite books and chose stories to decorate our areas with. We decided we would love to have tents, cushions and special chairs to sit on while we were reading. We love our new reading areas! If you would like to come and see them for yourself, please join us at one of our reading mornings. We hold them every Tuesday at 9:00-9:25am!

We arrived at school to find another mess this morning! Our cheeky elves were doing flour angels!
We checked the CCTV footage and found that our homemade CCTV cameras had caught something going on in the bay area…
After watching the CCTV, we wrote about today’s shenanigans. We’re getting so good at using exclamation marks!
Our teachers had the day off yesterday and were replaced by two wicked witches! Miss Kingsley and Miss Coggan were back as usual today, but Witch Kingsley and Witch Coggan had left us a spooky surprise!
After smelling the disgusting Halloween potion, we watched a video message from the witches, teaching us how to make it!
We described the icky ingredients and wrote the first part of a set of instructions:
Come back tomorrow to read the second part of our instructions!
A letter about our upcoming phonics meeting for Year 1 parents will be sent home today. A copy of the letter can be found by clicking here. You only need to attend one of the meetings. Please complete and return the slip to your child’s teacher as soon as possible.
Before the meeting, I’d be very grateful if you could complete this short survey. It will help me to ensure that the meeting is as informative as possible.

I look forward to seeing lots of you at the meetings,
