# New Topic – The Body

“We were doing drama about the dragon and the mouse. Also we were making our own story. I was a miner. We were writing invitations to the dragon and we read stories about dragons.” (Aryanna, Járed and Riley)

“We learned a new sound this week and the sound was o_e. We were writing pyramids of words with the o_e letters in it”. (Kayla)

“We were doing mental maths and we had to see the number without counting. We were also doing some different numbers as well. While we were doing mental maths the pen broke”. (Liam, Beth and Rory)

“In our maths we were using counters and paper strips and we were doing sums with halves and quarters” (Bryce).

“We were learning about the body and we needed to ask questions about our body.” (Megan and Natsumi)

Our sound for next week is u_e and we will be continuing to use our fractions knowledge in maths.

Sumdog logins will also be going home next week in homework jotters.

# P2B Assembly week

“We were having soft start and at soft start I was drawing. After that we made valentines cards. We were decorating the cards with paper hearts. We were folding paper, drawing half of a love heart and cutting them out. We learned that hearts are symmetrical.” (Euan, Rory and Abi J).

“We were writing our words on the whiteboards with the pictures. Our sound was i_e. We have been writing i_e words with playdough and on whiteboards.” (Joseph and Kayla).

“This week we did some show and tell with Euan and Abi who were going to show us some stuff. They got to show us the cool things that they brought. We had to be quiet and listen to the person who was speaking. The person who was speaking had to have a clear voice, make eye contact and after they did show and tell we said what they did good and what they did a little bit good. Some people get letters about show and tell and we have to listen to them.” (Alexis and Georgia)

“We were showing our mums and dads our class and we went on the laptops and showed them sumdog. Outside we were doing symmetrical pictures with chalk and me and Járed drew Járed’s mum, and we drew a line of symmetry by drawing lines with chalk down the middle” (Bryce, Járed and Riley)

“Annabelle and I made a picture of my mummy and we put rocks and shells around it”. (Liam)

# P2B Try Everything!

We’ve had a great week in P2B.

Our focus sound was a_e – we made words with playdough and drew pictures of the words on our whiteboards. We watched this video about ‘magic e’.

Our sound next week is i_e as in spike and hike.

In maths we were using playdough, paper strips and pasta to work out halves and quarters of a whole or an amount. We will continue with fractions next week.

We were learning about skeletons on Monday. Some Primary 7s came along to help us put them together with split pins.

Our assembly practice also began this week. Please come and join us next Thursday afternoon for our sharing afternoon where we will teach you all about Gerald the Giraffe and how did not give up, just like us!

Thank you for Mollie and Rhylan for book blessings this week about Dr Seuss’ Fox in Sox and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We look forward to reading them soon.

We also chose our favourite books from our class library and wrote a message to our classmates about why they might like to read them. Largo the Lion came along to give us a hand. Thanks Largo!

We logged into the laptops and used Clicker 7 to write and save emails to Ohad. They’ll be coming your way soon Ohad!

Phew! What a busy week!
