In Numeracy, we have been learning to count, recognise and correctly form numbers to 10. We had lots of fun inviting parents/carers in to observe a numeracy lesson. We also identified basic 2D shapes and focused on a triangle, discussing its properties and where we may see it in the environment. We introduced numbers in between and used our number lines to help.
“A triangle has 3 vertices and 3 sides.” – Oscar
“The racoon’s nose was a triangle.” – Phoebe
“We showed parents how to count with the number lines and number fans.” – Faith
In Literacy, we learned three new sounds: e, h and r. We had lots of opportunities for word building and had to say, make, read and write CVC words, using our initial sounds. We also read our ORT 1st words books to Miss Duncan. In writing, we wrote a personal account called A Day Out.
“We wrote a story and had to include a full stop.” – Faith
“We went down up and round to write ‘r’.” – Jessica
“We wrote ‘r’ with rhubarb in the rice.” – Oscar
In Health and Wellbeing, we read a story called The Grumpycorn and linked this into our Emotion Works. We identified the emotion word for the character and used words to describe his behaviours throughout the book. We drew pictures to illustrate good choices that he could have made in the story rather than shouting and throwing things.
“The unicorn was grumpy.” – Logan
“He threw stuff.” – Sarah
“The unicorn was being gentle in my picture.” – Ayesh
