What we did this week - 17th October
In Phonics this week, we have been practicing the sounds we have learned so far and have been learning some new key words. PARENTS - the key words have been sent home this week in your child's green book. Please encourage your child to practice reading these as often as possible. Most words are decodable by saying the sounds, however the words in red are tricky words and need to be learned by sight.
Describing a Polar Bear
Poetry has been our theme in Literacy this week and we have been reading a variety of poems or books about Penguins and Polar Bears. We have been using our vocabulary in English to describe these animals to make shape poems. This week, we also learned about Biff, Chip's twin sister from Oxford Reading Tree and talked about what clothes and colours she was wearing.
Making a Jigsaw of 'Biff'
Tracing Numbers 0-9
Making Sets to Match the Numeral
We have learned to recognise the number '0' in Numeracy this week and we have been counting down from 10 to 0, understanding that 0 represents nothing. Our main focus this week has been recognising numbers to 10, matching numerals to the number in a set and counting objects (to 10) that can't be moved. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT that we learn to recognise the numbers to 10 to continue the work we will be doing in Numeracy next term. This week, we have the numbers to practice in our green homework books. PARENTS - please practice these with us at home.
As part of our 'Me & My Home' topic, this week we started our journey learning about the 5 senses. We took a walk around the school and used our eyes to describe what we saw. We also learned that ears are for listening and we played a sound lotto game, where we had to listen to the different sounds and guess what they were.
