They came up with some great ideas and fantastic sentences!
Also, we learnt about how to stay safe on the internet by listening to the story Penguinpig and learnt a great rhyme from Smartie the Penguin:
Before you tap and click,
You have to stop and think
And TELL someone!
They also had a wonderful time when The Rainbow Factory visited on Thursday afternoon. All the photos of the trip are on this class page.
What a BUSY week the children have had!
After the Holidays
This week the children will be introduced to the phonemes th and ng. We will be using these sounds 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.
We will also review the words learnt so far to embed them further before continuing with any more key words.
As we begin our new theme for this half term which centres around animals, minibeasts and dinosaurs ”Dinosaurs Big, Minibeasts Small!” the literacy focus will be on report writing. The penguin theme continues as the children will research penguins to write their own information text adding a labelled diagram of a penguin. They will learn vocabulary to be able to use in their writing such as eat, know, live, penguin, beak, flippers.
The week will also be centred around a book in numeracy, called `365 Penguins`. We will use this book to solve a series of daily addition and subtraction problems which will mysteriously arrive in a package delivered by a courier! (Secrecy is the key to making this extra special for the children!)
As well as addition and subtraction using methods learnt before the holidays, we will also look at solving problems involving doubles and adding 3 single digits.
The week we come back we will be going to church on Ash Wednesday to mark the beginning of Lent. We will write our own Lenten promises on crosses to reflect on what we could do to show our love for Jesus.
Enjoy the half term break and we shall see you all again on Monday February 24th.
Don’t forget to post on Tapestry throughout the week your holiday fun activities!
