Literacy

Phonics and Active Spelling

Our sound was “ss”. We used picture writing to illustrate these words. We also wrote each spelling word out 3 times using different colours.

Reading

We used our group text, skimming and scanning skills. We chose 3 letters from the alphabet, looked through our book and wrote down a list of words which began with these 3 letters.

Writing

We used some of this week’s spelling words to write dictated sentences in our Literacy jotters. We also created a Wanted poster using a chosen character from our reading book. We wrote our weekend news in our News jotter.

Talking and Listening

We shared our weekend news by playing a game called Ping Pong. We were only allowed to talk when holding the ball. After throwing the ball (choice of under arm/over arm throw) to our partner, we listened to our peers sharing their weekend news. Playing this game was such great fun! 😊

In preparation for creating our Wanted poster, we worked in trios and discussed what our Wanted poster should include and look like.

Numeracy

Mental Maths

Our focus was Counting. We counted forwards in groups as well as a whole class. We also made a good attempt at completing our Counting Backwards challenge 😊.

We also played some Mental Maths games called Around The World and Beat The Teacher. This was to reinforce and consolidate our counting skills and knowledge of the number which comes before and the number which comes after within 100.

We revised and used the Counting On strategy to complete different Addition calculations. This also included sums with missing numbers in them.

We have consolidated our learning of Addition involving no carrying and have now moved onto Addition with carrying calculations.

We also recapped our knowledge of 2D and 3D shapes. We created beautiful patterns using 2 2D shapes and 2 colours of our own choice each time.

Health and Wellbeing

We watched a video clip to help with our whole class discussion about Road Safety. Using the Stop, Look, Listen and Think message, we planned our competition entry for the upcoming South Lanarkshire Council’s Road Safety Calendar Competition.

Last Week in Room 14

Last week we were super busy in Room 14! Here’s a little look at some of our learning. As you know, we have been enjoying reading our class novel, ‘The Creakers’.

Last week we were super busy in Room 14! Here’s a little look at some of our learning.

As you know, we have been enjoying reading our class novel, ‘The Creakers’. There is a big focus in the book on waste so last week the children became waste detectives, researching the effects of dumping waste in the sea, underground and in the atmosphere.

We were very lucky with the sunny weather last week so we took our learning outdoors again. We worked on doubling and times tables in maths and even had some time to read a chapter of our class novel in the sunshine.

We started off our poetry writing lesson outside too by working on our rhyming skills. The children all did such a good job and were keen to read their poems aloud to the rest of the class.

Below are just a couple of examples of Room 14’s amazing poems all about their lockdown memories as well as some other pictures of this week’s learning.







Room 9

The boys and girls have been working together creating  games and activities for our circus afternoon…. we have made juggling balls, patterned paper for our tumble the cans stall and a target box to help us brush up … Continue reading Room 9

This week in class we have been working hard to earn tickets to spend at our circus.

The boys and girls have been working together creating  games and activities for our circus afternoon…. we have made juggling balls, patterned paper for our tumble the cans stall and a target box to help us brush up on our addition skills to name a few.

The photos speak for themselves!

 

Room 11 – Dreamcatchers

This week, Room 11 we began to thread their dreamcatchers. Through our research, we discovered that it is believed that dreamcatchers originated from the story of the, “spider woman”, who would weave webs at the bottom of children’s beds. It is believed that these webs would catch bad dreams and allow children to have nice … Continue reading Room 11 – Dreamcatchers

This week, Room 11 we began to thread their dreamcatchers.

Through our research, we discovered that it is believed that dreamcatchers originated from the story of the, “spider woman”, who would weave webs at the bottom of children’s beds. It is believed that these webs would catch bad dreams and allow children to have nice happy dreams.

We enhanced our fine motor skills by weaving wool through holes in our paper plates, creating a web inside.

It was a challenging task but we worked together and helped our friends – Miss Riley was so proud of our team work and how we helped each other!

Take a look at our super team work in action…

  1. The boys and girls in room 1 have been working super hard this week.
    They have enjoyed developing their numeracy skills and learning to recognise and form their numbers accurately, as well as making some number monsters.

In literacy they are working on writing their names using the correct letter formation.
Today the boys and girls enjoyed being authors and illustrators and created a narrative piece of writing about an adventurous walk.
We also did a little bit of Kung Fu punctuation.
Why not ask your child to teach you some moves!

With the great weather we’ve had this week, we’ve been able to step out of our pod and take our learning outside too ☀ Outdoor maths is a firm favourite!

What a wonderful week of learning in Room 2.

We are doing so well with our numbers and are learning how to put the days of the week into order.

In Literacy, we have busy doing predictions about a story – ask us about our crystal ball, the author, the title and the blurb. We could also tell you lots of rhymes!

We have been talking a lot about achieving this week and sharing how it makes us feel to succeed in something. We are very impressed by all of the great achievements our boys and girls have had!

Here is a look at some of our super learning:
