Verbs are doing words, they end in -ing. Adverbs describe a verb. They end in - ly.​ Today we used our animal masks and listened to Miss Morrow's instructions. The lions were sleeping silently. The zebras were running quickly.  The cheetahs were crawling quietly. 17 November 2017: In Linnet Class we have created African animal masks. In Linnet Class we have been working with a specialist art teacher to create African prints.

We learnt about the African story 'Anansi and the Bananas.' We got to be characters in the story, such as elephants, tigers and monkeys. We also had a go at playing djembe​ drums. We had a wonderful time! 30 October 2017: Today Linnet class went on an adventure to Africa!  20 October 2017:  In Linnet class we have been doing research on different jobs.

We asked her questions such as: Hani: How do you keep healthy? Renad: How do you keep fit? Corey: How do you get to sleep at night? September 2017: Linnet class have made a productive start to the year and have taken no time in settling down into life in Year 1.
