Wow! we have completed our first half term in Ladybird class! What a busy time we have had.
We are making great progress with our phonics. The sounds we have learnt so far are:
s a t i p n c k m e h r d g o u l f
We can use these sounds to do some writing with as we have learnt how to say the word and wrote down the sounds we hear. We can all hear the first sound in words and many of us can hear end and even middle sounds. Our writing is looking good. Get us to show you at home over the holidays.
We have met a lots more numbers now . We have learnt
1, penguin one
2, Ticklish two ( a swan)
3, Butterfly three
4, feathery four ( peacock)
5, Frisky five ( kangraoo)
6, Snappy six ( crocodile)
7, spotty seven ( giraffe)
8, Amazing eight ( spider)
we have been using our number knowledge to play some maths games. Our favourite is a game where we have to roll the dice move our counter along the board and then look to see what number have have landed on and do that number of claps, it is helping us learn to take turns, count objects and reconginse our numbers.
We have been busy being picture dectives and as we are making great progress with our phonics some of us have started to take books with words home we still need to be a picture detective first beofre reading the words . Those of us on wordless books are getting really good at telling stories which will help us with our own wrting as well as when we get books with words.
We have been looking at the story of the ginger bread man. We enjoyed this story and have lablled some of the charatures from the book. We decorated our own ginger bread buscuit and then ate it at the end of the term, it was great fun and so yummy.
In PE we have been learning how to jump off things and land safely so we dont hurt ourselves or fall over. We are good at this from a small heigh and are getting more confident from a higher height.
We have loved sharing all the sign of Autumn with the class. we found so many conkers, leaves, acorns and even some small pumpkins.
We took part in our first whole school assembly where we had to perform. We sung a song baout autumn leaves to the rest of the school. We all sung very well and remembered all the actions.
The chilren who have recieved the star awards are Jack A and Henry F, both boys have done some lovely writing about autumn and the gingerbread man .
Harry Hippy has been enjoying his weekebnd adventures. He has stayed with Lewis and is off having fun with Imogen.
