Yes-it's "Old" Mrs M!! (thanks Isaac for helping me to remember that...)
As promised, I told the class I would try to post more comments. So here goes...from the Smarties...
Today was business as usual. Plenty of work to be done in our Mental Maths and Signpost Maths books. We were measuring things in our classroom, eg the length of our desk, the height of our chair, etc. We used different informal measuring tools to help us, such as our pencils and our erasers. Then it was on to Handwriting. Mrs M says our handwriting is improving all the time. We did the letter 'Ww' today. After Recess we went to Music with Mrs L, and Italian with Senora L.
At lunchtime a special parcel arrived for us. Mrs M had ordered calico backpacks for us to decorate during our Technology and Enterprise lessons in the afternoon. We watched a video featuring Chris, a designer from the Colorado Sports Company, designing a backpack. He taught us about 'ideation' - the forming of ideas. He showed us how to draw the different parts of a backpack. Then we had a go in our books. It was fun. The theme for our backpacks is 'Australia'. We drew our own designs and labelled all the different parts. On Friday we are going to draw the patterns/designs onto our calico backpacks. We can't wait. It will be so much fun. (Mrs M is going to take some photos of us working on our backpacks and put them onto the Blog.)
Tomorrow is our special party day because we filled the jar with the marbles. Mrs N will be in to share the day with us. We'll have lots more news tomorrow so until then...
