During RE following on from learning about God’s Creation, the children have discussed how we care for the things God made. They spoke about how to care for growing things as well as making sure we pick up our litter and recycle and what the impact could be if we didn’t care for our planet. The children also went out looking for things that God made such as plants, flowers, grass trees and snails!
We are also enjoying dedicating our collective worships to Our Lady, 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 m and d.
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, as well as sorting objects with different criterion, the children will explore how numbers can be composed of 1s and, from this, begin to investigate the composition of 3 and 4; e.g. seeing that 3 can be composed of 1 and 2.
During RE we will learn about how much Jesus loves us and talk about the love we have amongst our family and friends. The children will also learn that we can show God’s love by loving each other.
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!
