Back in the Classroom – Grade Seven Market Day

The term is fast drawing to a close – just one full week to go and then three days of Awards Ceremonies and Breaking Up.   It is a time when the children begin to realise that their time in Grade One is coming to an end and they need to prepare themselves change yet again.  Therefore they are restless and a little emotional so the best thing to do is stick to routine as much as possible – not easy when there is so much out of the ordinary happening.

I am so proud of my girls, though, as they are still working very hard to that next level in Reading and to master their sums in the higher number ranges.   How far they have come since that first tentative step into “big school”

One of our big interruptions this week was the Grade Seven Market Day.   Everything was beautifully set up in the hall and the courtyard outside.   The girls could buy books of 10 tickets for R10 and then go and spend to their hearts content.  And what a lot there was to buy!  Our money lessons were put to practical use as they carefully counted their R1 vouchers and considered about how best to spend them.

Look what we got!

Look what we got with money to spare!

Everything looked so exciting

But in spite of regular interruptions for all things exciting we still had a good week of work and next week  we will be making booklets for our Grade 2 teachers.   They need to know how very smart we are!
