Stickman writing, Numicon addition and Nativity practice in P1B

In Literacy this week we learned the sound j and v:

j – down the Jack in a box’s body, curl. Dot for the head.

v – down the vulture’s wing, up the wing

J is quite tricky because we can get it muddled with i and form the curl the wrong way. Remember that the j has a tail that goes past the line. We also learned two new common words – put, was.

On Wednesday we did a super piece of writing on the story Stickman. We imagined what we would use Stickman for if we found him. We are getting very good at sounding out words and remembering to use a finger space after each word. Here is some of our super writing:

In Numeracy we worked on addition pairs to 6, 7 and 8. We are getting very good at forming numbers the correct way round and writing addition sums correctly. We also worked on addition using numicon:

Admin for next week (it’s a busy one!):

If you haven’t already got your tickets for the Nativity, please return the ticket letter slip on Monday, dojo me if you need another ticket letter.

Costumes in a labelled bag to be handed in by Tuesday – please refer to the Nativity information Sheet – not all children need to hand costume in.  All children know their parts.

Tuesday – Nativity rehearsal at the church. We will be leaving as soon as we have done the register and ordered lunches. Please send children with a waterproof coat and a small bag to carry their water and a snack in. We will be back in time for school lunches so no need for a packed lunch.

Thursday – Christmas jumper day and Christmas lunch

Friday – Christmas Fayre 9am-12

Happy weekend (26 sleeps until Christmas!),

Love P1B and Mrs Bell x
