What a super first week back we have had. All children in P2/3 have come back enthusiastic and eager.
In literacy this week we have continued to revise and consolidate all our digraphs to date. We learned a new digraph ‘ue’ as in blue. Throughout the week we have played word reader/maker games to help with our spelling and reading of ‘ue’ words, we have played a bingo games, revised Nouns and have looked at character descriptions. We have completed comprehension tasks based around our reading books and have completed sequencing tasks.
I writing this week we used Halloween characters as stimuli to then write a character description for them. Mrs Cuthbert was very impressed with our writing.
Throughout this week we covered different concepts in maths. We looked at 10 more/less than a given number as well as 1 more/lesss. We revised halves and looked at quarters: identifying a quarter, colouring in a quarter and calculating a quarter of an amount using manipulatives.
Primary 2/3EC had an awesome Friday at school. It was great seeing everyone all dressed up and the children took delight in commenting on the different costumes in their class. As well as the dressing up competition we participated with some Halloween mindfulness colouring and in the afternoon we made some Halloween crafts.
