Reading– This week lots of children have been earning reading dojo’s for their chart. This has been through sharing a book at home, not only their reading book but also other books every day.
We are doing really well with our keywords and we are now beginning to focus more on our writing so that we can write a sentence that we can read back ourselves. We have been thinking about only using capital letters at the beginning of a sentence or for someone’s name or the name of a place, as well as remembering to put in our finger spaces to help us to read our writing better. To help us with our writing we have also been practising the correct formation of the letter ‘a’, writing over the sounds using 5 different coloured pencils. We will focus on each sound in the alphabet over the next few weeks.
Maths – We are working on a range of skills at the moment, aiming to cover any gaps that the children have missing, before the end of our school year. This has included numbers to 20, counting forwards and backwards and knowing the number before or after a number. As well as doubling, halving and sharing—Wow! haven't we been busy!.
Learning Focus—This week we are still looking at our focus storybook—Jack and the Jelly Bean Stalk. We have been listening to the story, putting it in the right order, thinking about the beginning, middle and end before attempting to write a few sentences ourselves.
Well done to Logan who was chosen as ‘Pupil of the Week’. Logan always follows the school and class rules.
Have a lovely bank holiday weekend
