Week beginning 23rd January

This week we focused on the sounds ‘ai’, ‘ee’, ‘igh’ and ‘oa’. This were a bit tricky so we practiced sounding out words and writing them down. We also looked at 2D shapes and created some pictures with them. We enjoyed making ice lollies and talking about what happens when they freeze. We also explored mixing colours and making mosaic penguins. A year three child came to share his knowledge of penguins with us and we found out lots of information.

Week beginning 9th January

Happy New Year! We hope you had a lovely Christmas. Thank you so much for our gifts and cards they were much appreciated. We have begun the year by looking at the book Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers. This story is about a penguin and a boy who eventually become friends. From this we have looked at how penguins move, investigated ice, found the South Pole and other places on an atlas, made penguins out of egg cartons, listened to other stories about penguins and found out some penguin facts. This week we have recapped ‘th’,’ch’ and ‘sh’ and created some rhyming strings¬†for example,¬†hop, mop, top.
