Term 4 Week 4

Highlights from last week

Lots of excitement early on in the week with everyone buzzing about what they did for halloween or at the disco, so it was easy to see why the favourite topic of choice for writing this week was about their halloween experiences. L2's progress in writing has been steady and as such their confidence and interest in writing has grown with it. I have asked them all to bring in their Anton books, if they haven't already, so that I can glue in frequently used words for writing to learn to spell.  This enables them to spend more time on thinking about what they want to write and not how to write the words.

On Monday we studied the bones in our hand, following up with an exercise of making a x-ray of our own hands.

Wednesday afternoon we booked the bikes.  A few more grazes as we learn to persist with difficulty in order to gain sucess.

Friday a whole school assembly saw another L2 child receiving an ORCA award.

This Week

For maths we will continue to strengthen our number knowledge.

In writing we will be working towards gaining the confidence to becoming more independent writers.

In reading we will be building our strategies.  We have studied a few blends as a class and individually, so I will be sending the commonly used ones home in their Anton books.

In the afternoons this week we will be working through the "Keeping Ourself Safe" modules and practicing our songs for the Y1 Christmas show.

School wide-brim sun hats must be worn outside this term.  No caps. If your child doesn't have one on, they will have to sit in the shade next to L2 during breaks.
