We drew pictures on leaves of everyday RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS and made a kindness tree. We also made thank you cards to our school Security Team and Food and Beverage Team.
This week we have been learning about Europe: United Kingdom's animals. We used non-fiction books and video clips to extend our knowledge of animals in Europe such as hedgehog, badger, puffin and red squirrel. We had fun observing and exploring animals around the world in our Tuff Spot tray, using a magnifying glass and books. In arts and crafts we enjoyed making hedgehog, badger masks, a squirrel collage, and colouring and painting animals around the world.
This week in phonics, we continued recapping Phase 1, Aspects 1-7. We also continued practising body sounds and and our letters and sounds in groups. We have been working hard on our initial sounds and blending three letter words through various games and activities. We enjoyed mark making with salt and glitter to practise writing our names.
In maths we continued to develop our counting skills and number recognition through structure games such as show down, corners and line up. We are also learning to sequence numbers and we made ladybirds and caterpillars by sequencing numbers.
This week we have been sharing the story The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have been designing and making bridges for the Billy goats to trip trap over to reach the delicious grass. We worked in our teams to make a paper bridge and tested to make sure that is could stand up and was strong enough to hold a toy billy goat.
In our phonics sessions, Miss Vijaya's group have been revisiting phase 3 sounds.. Miss Nuimai’s group have been learning the digraphs oo and ar.
