Hello from Mrs Campbell

Hi Year 1  I just wanted to say a big hello and well done to you all!  Mrs Imeson has been telling me such great things and I know she is very proud of you all.   After seeing some of your work on the website, I just have to say Wow! I was lucky enough to see your creative art work and all of the wonderful maths and writing you have been doing. I loved the bird fact files and was very impressed by the delicious baking!  It was great to see the photographs of some of you having fun in the snow, building snowmen and sledging.  I have been busy helping my daughter Lily with her home schooling in the mornings and then going on lovely, long dog walks in the afternoon.  We have also been doing lots of home baking and writing stories.   I know that my daughter is really hoping for more snow but I am really excited for the arrival of spring and love spotting any signs that spring it on its way.  Have you seen any signs of spring when you have been outside?  Take care and keep working hard.  Love Mrs Campbell.x

Hello the ten frames the bottom one has 6 aliens the middle one has 4 aliens if you moved them togerher it would make 10 6 + 4 = 10 so only one frame would be empty. Good maths thinking Frankie. From Mrs Imeson

Dani Fliski(a couple of months ago)

I went sledging down a big hill with mummy nanny and my brother Ethan. It was great fun.

Frankie Wheeler(a couple of months ago)

Frankie thinks the pictures are 2 different wood logs painted black. Thank you for your super guess Frankie. I thought it was a carpet and I was really surprised it was a feather. Were you surprised? Mrs Imeson
