Our focus was making repeated patterns.
iCANPLAY and Nursery learners had so much fun counting and choosing their own pasta colours to create beautiful necklaces and bracelets by repeating the patterns.
Reception learners worked very hard to conduct a survey about people's favourite fruit kebab choices for the Maths Day sale. Later we plotted our bar graph on the survey and finalised which 4 fruits we need to buy to make the fruit kebab. We also plotted our Kebab in patterns like ABAB, ABCD, ABAB and ABCDE. working together to make our poster for the Math Day.
We also drew pictures and wrote sentences to record what makes us happy.
This week we have continued to explore Transport. We have been using our knowledge and skills to learn more about Air transport. We looked at non-fiction video clips and books on aeroplanes, helicopters and hot air balloons. In art and craft we made helicopter collages and decorated a CD hot air balloon with different textures such as pomp poms, buttons and paper. We enjoyed listening to stories and singing the Up, Up, Up in a Balloon song.
This week Nursery learners continued finding words that rhyme through stories and songs. We used cooperative learning structure games to practise segmenting three letter words and listening to the initial sounds in words.
iCAN PLAY learners have been practising to discriminate between sounds they hear and identify the animals and imitate the sounds.
This week we have been learning all about the stegosaurus. We looked at non-fiction books and used the internet to find out lots of information about the stegosaurus. We then used this information to write a fact file. We worked cooperatively to make a large stegosaurus using different textures. We have also been practising some songs about the triceratops and stegosaurus. We worked collectively as a group, incorporating all our personal goals, to set up our Dinosaurs role play area in our classroom. We stuck pasta for bones onto dinosaurs and have been looking at lots of new vocabulary linked with dinosaurs and paleontologists.
In phonics - Ms. Niumai’s group have been introducing phase 3 phonics.
Ms. Helen’s group are looking at phase 2 new tricky words and continue with phase 3 sounds.
Ms. Vijaya’s group are blending phase 3 sentences and continue with diagraphs ‘Sh’ and ‘ai’ words.
We have been practising using wow words in sentences for Big Talk. In reading we made great progress and able to read simple sentences using CVC words with learning facilitators and discussing stories, which are building our comprehension and understanding skills.
We have been busy drawing dinosaurs and writing the names of them in our writing journals this week.
