During RE the children have listened to how the world was created and independently responded to our spiritual play story on creation through art and design mediums.
We also enjoyed our first week of full collective worships. We have been focussing on the rosary as it is now the Month of October, as a class we are saying a decade of Hail Marys every day which the children are responding to very respectfully.
In numeracy we have been continuing with careful counting and learning how to count objects which cant be moved. We have used careful crossing off to ensure no items get missed!
This week the children will be introduced to the letters d and g.
We will be using these phonemes and those learnt so far to blend the sounds (push sounds together) to read words and segment (break sounds up) in a word to spell. Please remember to revisit these sounds during the week and complete the activity sheet with your child.
There will be new words introduced this week: this/This, is, am.
The children will write about the areas in their class and what they are doing in them using these words eg
This is sand. I am pouring.
This is the sink. I am washing.
They will also have to guess the teachers mimes to see if they can guess what they are doing and where and write it in a sentence with a partner!
During numbers this week, we will be sorting objects with different criterion. To begin with the children will use sorting hoops to sort words, colours, shapes and numbers. Then they will move on to looking at pictograms. They will count and record the results and then discuss their findings answering questions such as which colour car is the most popular? Are there more sheep or cows?
During RE, we will consider how to look after the world which God created and whilst out walking, take photos on the ipads of different things God made.
Thank you to everyone who attended the Phonics information evening this week, I hope you found it informative and that it will support you in how best to support your child at home with their phonics, reading and writing.
Your children are now bringing home their phonics sheets on a regular basis, please continue to help your child practise the sounds we are teaching in class by using the sheets we send home to form the letters as well as read and spell words using the taught phonemes (sounds). Remember there is a video guide link at the top of the class page on how you can use the sheets at home.
Have a great weekend!
