Over the last few weeks some of our P1′s have been learning about holding a sentence. It is when the teacher reads us a sentences and we hold it in our head and then write it down in our jotter! We are getting really quite great at it. We even remembered our finger spaces :)

We have been learning how to keep our teeth clean and healthy. We decided to do an experiment to see what would happen fi we had ate or drank sugary things and did not brush our teeth properly. We used eggs to represent our teeth. We placed one egg in lemonade and one in water. We then predicted what we thought was going to happen. Here is what we did in class and what happened after leaving the eggs for over a week!!!

The egg in lemonade is now cracked and has started to go all rotten. Yuck!!!!!

Its important to brush our teeth!!!!!!
