In literacy, we continue to build on our knowledge of sounds to help us improve our writing skills.
We have been practising this so much that we even made our own books! We enjoy using what we know about our sounds to help us to write. We try our best to keep our writing targets in mind such as remembering finger spaces and using capital letters and full stops correctly.
We have been sorting words into their phonemes!
For example, we know that words such as bee, free and three have the ‘ee’ sound and words such as pain, brain and gain have the ‘ai’ sound!
Roll + read games help us to improve our knowledge of phonemes.
We continue to revise our common words through a variety of games.
We have even started to think about non-fiction texts.
We have been exploring different texts to differentiate between fiction and non-fiction. We then tried to record the non-fiction facts we found within these texts!
In numeracy and maths, we continue to consolidate our number knowledge. We are becoming much faster at recalling number bonds as well as building on our stragies for addition. We are able to count on and back successfully and continue to think about numbers before and after.
We have began to learn all about subtraction! We know that by subtracting we are moving back down the number line and that our answer is going to be smaller than the other numbers.
We worked with a partner to make a tower using cubes, we then had to pick a subtraction card and take away the number of cubes to find the answer.
We were also learning how to set out these types of calculations on whiteboards by learning about the subtraction sign.
We are also consolidating our knowledge of adding 3 numbers, we enjoy using dice to help us with this!
In ICT, we have been creating images and using different features to add a variety of colours and shapes to them! We have even been learning how to add text to an image, we learned how to use the space bar to help us to include finger spaces.
Outdoors we continue to use our imaginations to take part in different role-play activities and games as well as applying what we learn in the classroom to our outdoor area.
We also enjoy working on our counting and number formation outside!
We used the palettes and pieces of wood to create a pirate ship and a stage!
We have so much fun building our teamwork skills!
Through our learning areas, we continue to apply a variety of different skills.
At the STEM table, we became inventors! We used a variety of resources to create/make different things.
We work on our teamwork skills by working together to complete a huge floor puzzle!
Great work P1B!
