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 as we have learnt how to say the word and write 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.
We have met 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 and move our counter along the board and then look to see what number we have landed on and clap that number of times. It is helping us learn to take turns, count objects and recognise numbers.
We have been busy being picture detectives 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 . We are all getting really good at telling stories which will help us with our writing.
We have been looking at 'The Gingerbread Man' story. We enjoyed this story and have labelled some of the characters from the book. We decorated our own ginger bread biscuit and then ate it at the end of the day. It was great fun and so yummy.
In PE we have been learning how to jump off things and land safely so we don't hurt ourselves or fall over. We are good at this from a small height and are becoming more confident from a higher height.
We have loved sharing all the signs of Autumn with the class. We found so many conkers, leaves, acorns and even some small pumpkins.
We have taken part in our first whole school assembly where we sang a song about autumn leaves to the rest of the school. We all sang very well and remembered all the actions.
