We have continued to work hard and explore the Poles by building igloos this week in P1/2S. Who know how we have found the time to keep learning new sounds, words and number strategies? Let us tell you all about our learning this week…
P1 have been learning the qu sound this week. We have now learned all the sounds in the whole alphabet and so have been practising reading lots of words since we can now read all the sounds! We are excited as we could now read any word in the whole wide world!
P2 have been practising the ow sounds again this week. You can say ow in 2 ways – you can say ou and oa. We have been reading this word and thinking which sound fits best.
Numeracy and Maths:
We have all continued to practise our addition and subtraction skills. We have also been learning to use balance scales. If the balance scale goes up, the item in it is light and if it goes down it is heavy. If both sides of the balance scale float in the middle, then the things in each side weigh the same.
We have been learning to not be a lazy log or hefty hog when working in a group. You need to listen to everyone in your group, take turns and join in. We have been learning to do this by building igloos in groups.
