This week in Room 4, the boys and girls learned their first two sounds – ‘a’ and ‘t’ during our Literacy slots. The children learned two new songs to help them remember the sounds and have enjoyed using their new magnetic boards. The pupils have been practising the pronunciation of the sounds and they also played a game of I spy and spotted lots of ‘a’ and ‘t’ words in our classroom. The children have been working hard on the formation of the two letters by practising in the air, on their hands and writing on their magnetic boards. The children also started a class reading book this week called “In the Playhouse”. We discussed the title and plot of the story and even had a go at reading the book to our table partner. I am sure that the children would love to share their reading experience with everybody at home. Great learning Room 4!
This week at Newton Farm Primary School we celebrated European Day of Languages. The primary 7 pupils visited our classroom on Monday and taught us a French song. By the end of the session, we were able to sing the song and add in actions by ourselves. Some of the boys and girls are now answering, in French, to their name on the register every morning. We were also treated to a lovely French breakfast this morning. On sale were some delicious French pastries and breads and there was even hot chocolate on the menu! I think you will agree that the show of thumbs up in the pictures highlights the huge success of the breakfast. Thank you Primary 7.
Our Harvest Assembly is on Friday 10th October at 11:30am. We have been learning our Harvest song and can’t wait to see you there.
The boys and girls in Room 4 have been working very hard in term 1 and I wish you all a relaxing and enjoyable September weekend.
