Yesterday was helping in class morning again :)

It started off with me doing filing from the day before :)

Then instead of English and singing assembly the kids went of to watch the dress rehearsal for the year 2 production :) Evie couldnt remember what it was called but it was about sunflowers :)

Then the kids went through the months of the year and after morning break they were gluing the months onto a sheet and then had to draw pictures of things that were important to them for those months :)

As I was leaving I saw some of next years reception kids having their lunch experience :)

possibly more hours

I was at work today adn one of the ladies asked me how much it would cost to use one of the smaller rooms... I showed her all of the rooms and there were 2 small rooms that she thought would be suitable.

I then said that I would take down the details and get someone to discuss it with them, I then asked what day they wanted and she said Sundays for 2 hours after church!

At the moment Im working 5 hours with no break, but if I work for 6 hours or more then Im entitled to a break.

I have left a note for my boss and will have to see what happens...

..on the plus side it shows that they do like me :)

coins and the little red hen

Yesterday I was helping out in class...

...after filing away the work from the day before, the kids were doing English (they were completing their Little Red Hen stories).

Evies Little Red Hens friends were Cheeky Horse, Crazy Rabbit and Huge Cow, and she was planting carrots which she ended up eating on her own (because her friends wouldnt help her) :).

During singing assembly I listened to J read his book :)

Then after morning break it was maths and they were doing coins and how you could make amounts with certain coins.

I ended up helping S and J with their Maths :)

It was then time for me to go home :)

cloudy sports day

Today is Evies sports day :)

I have put a green t-shirt (the same one from last year as all I could get at the time was a slightly larger size) in her bookbag already.

The weather today is for thick cloud (but I will still put sun cream on her anyway) and will give her a bottle of water and she has a hat that I will put in her bag too.

James has today off so he doesnt have to rush home from work either :)

mummy I did my words

When Evie came out of her classroom she told me that she had done her words :)

Evie said that she thought that she did ok and that she picked out some of the alien words.

We said to her that as long as she did her best then that is all that matters :)

So I asked her teacher when we would find out if she has passed it or not she said that we would find out in the end of year school report!

house point and wrong around way

Yesterday I was helping out in Evies class...

first I was filing the work away from the day before - it was letters and hindu gods :)

While I was doing some gluing work into their topic books the kids did English, they had to write 4 friends, 4 farm animals and 4 jobs to do on the farm :)

After playtime Miss B said that Evie did a challenging part of the jungle gym (in the school field) I think it was to walk along a balance beam and then you had to use a rope, but Im not too sure and Evie got a house point for doing it :)

It was then maths and I was outside sorting the books, the kids had to glue pictures in to their books into the right order from smallest to biggest and back again, dominoes, coins and numbers

Evie being Evie glued them in in the order she wanted to do it (she put the coins in the middle instead of at the bottom), she said that she got some right and some wrong.

phonics week

This week at school is phonics testing...

...I will have to ask Evie every afternoon to see if she has done it.

I thought that it was a week of spelling tests but from what I have just read it isnt.

I might even see one kid doing theirs on Wednesday when Im helping in class :)

interesting 100

Yessterday I was helping out in class, and after I did the filing from the day before, the children had been given notebooks, and they had to write interesting facts about their school.

They started in the classroom, then moved into the playground, then the dinner hall, then the computer suite, and then the cookery room.

I didnt even realise they had a cookery room or that the kids had even been in there!

I have just asked Evie why they were writing the facts yesterday and she says that she doesnt know :)

Then after the morning break it was maths and numbers to 100...

I was out sorting the books and when I came back in (after the kids started lining up for their lunch) I saw that the kids had a puzzle (of numbers upto 100) to stick together in their maths books.

Evie was the only one still doing it and Miss B was helping her :)

We have a few things to do in town today and I am going to text James as Evie said that he told her that she could have a happy meal today!

2 lunch weekend

A few months ago me & my friends arranged a lunch (and a gossip) and it turned out to be yesterday...

...last week me and some other friends decided to meet for lunch (although one of them didnt eat) and that was today after I had finished work.

We decided to go to a new restaurant that opened in town...

...after deciding that I couldnt eat another lunch and dessert and the desserts looking really yummy...

...I went straight for a dessert :)

campfire s'mores
It was really nice :)

sandals not shoes

On Wednesday we got Evies feet measured...

...while we were in the shop waiting for our turn we saw F in Evies class :)

It turned out that F was one place ahead of us...

F's favourite colour was blue and she wrote 6 back to front :)

...her feet had grown and her Mum was explaining to her that as she needed new shoes now she may not necessarily need new shoes for the beginning of the new school year, her brother W starts reception year in September,  Her brother will be getting new shoes for September.

Thats a bit of a tricky one really... least with just having Evie I dont have that to negotiate :)

It was then Evies turn

Evies favourite colour is pink and she wrote her 6 the right way around :)

She then had her feet measured and they hadnt grown.

That afternoon we were going to the supermarket so as we now knew what size we were looking for (size 10) we looked at sandals...

...the only ones that I could find in Evies size werent pink and therefore not acceptable!

So yesterday we looked in Primark and we did find some pink sandals that madam approved of so we bought them :)
