This week in Literacy we read the story The Way Back Home. We looked at the beginning, middle and end of the book to sequence the story. In phonics we learned the sounds ir (whirl and twirl), ou (shout it out) and oy (toy for a boy). We practised writing words that contain these digraphs, and also matched pictures and words containing our new digraphs. We also learned the tricky words were and there.
In maths we worked on addition. We are learning how to count on when adding two groups of objects together. To do this, some children used their fingers, others used objects or more children began to use number lines. We also made up our own games outside during the maths session, and continued to learn about weighing.
On Wednesday we went to Bushey Manor to sing our Sign2Sing song. We have been practising the sounds and signs for the song, and we proudly sang it out during the assembly.
We have also been busy preparing for our class assembly, which will take place on Monday 27th February. Everyone is welcome to attend this assembly.
