We have had a fantastic first week back!
In Phonics this week, we have been learning the same sound different spelling of ‘ea’ <ai> <ay> <a_e> <ea>. We will continue to learn this sound next week. Phonics 4.11.22
In English this week, we have been exploring riddles and have written our own riddles about an animal. We have been focusing on using interesting adjectives to make our riddles more descriptive. If you would like to continue writing adjectives, then here is a sheet you can do at home English 4.11.22 . To extend this activity, your child can write a riddle or sentence about the animal which includes the adjectives.
In Maths this week, we have continued to explore part-part-wholes. We have been focusing on numbers up to 5 and all the different possibilities. If you would like to do some pre-teaching for next week, here is a sheet Maths 4.11.22. The children will be exploring numbers between 6-10.
As you will be aware, each child has now been sent home with a reading folder. Inside their reading folder you will find two books (one for reading for pleasure and one for the children to read – phonicsbook), a bookmark with the fortnightly sound and a book list. Please see poster on classroom door for instructions on how to use the bookmark. Please can you ensure all items stay inside the folder for when we change them. We will be changing the books every fortnight on a Friday morning.
In Phonics next week, we will continue to focus on the ‘ea’ sound.
In English next week, we will be focusing on writing sentences using different punctuation (. ? !).
In Math we will be continuing to explore part-whole models with numbers between 6-10.
