In Phonics this week we have been very busy – we leaned l, c, k and ck!
l – stretch down the long leg
c – curl around the caterpillar
k – down the kangaroo’s body, tail and leg
We learned that c, c and ck all make the same sound. It can be tricky to remember when to use each one. We learned some words that begin with c and k and we know that ck usually comes at the end of a word. Mrs Bell was very impressed with how quickly we picked this up!
We have almost finished our handwriting booklets, each of us has a few pages left to complete so these have been sent home today to work through at home at your own pace – these do not need to be returned to school. Please don’t do the k page – it’s not the correct formation and will confuse us!
In Numeracy we learned addition facts to 4, 5 and 6. It helps us with our mental maths if we know these off by heart. For example, 3 and 3 make 6. There are lots of fun ways to practise these at home, you could shout out a number and ask us to clap or jump the number pair to make the amount. For example when practising number facts to 4 – you shout out 1, we clap or jump 3 times.
In French we have been learning colours. We learned the colours of the French flag and enjoyed playing games around the classroom to practise these. Here’s a simple song to help us to learn the colours:
We have been busy little elves making our Christmas crafts for the Christmas Fayre this week… we can’t tell you any more than that just now, it’s a surprise!
We had a lovely time at our BEAR event today, reading our favourite books by torchlight:

We read one of MS’s favourite stories this week, she very confidently told us (and Mrs Hocknull) about each of the animals:
