This week we have been reading the traditional tale The Three Billy Goats Gruff in Drawing Club. The children have been working hard on including greater detail in their drawings and improving the presentation of their writing by using spaces between words and trying to keep their letters on the line.
They have learned the words luscious, creaky, fearless, gruesome, determined and bamboozled.
In phonics they have continued to work on Level 4, reading CCVC words this week and identifying the double consonant at the beginning of the word e.g ‘sw’ in swim, ‘tr’ in trip, train, tree, ‘st’ in step, stop, stick etc. They have also learned the tricky words some, come, have and like. All the level 4 tricky words they have learned so far have been added to their sound card bags so they can practice at home.
In Maths they started the week continuing to practice solving missing number addition stories, then we moved on to learning to subtract using the First, Then, Now structure introduced last week for addition. Some of the children are beginning to use their bank of number facts to solve problems, which is great but we are also working on making sure they can ‘prove it’ and show it on a ten frame, talk about it or record it in pictures or in a number sentence.
We had great fun in PE working on our running skills, making sure we run safely at speed avoiding obstacles and are getting better at working in teams in preparation for Sports Day which we will start to practice for after half term.
Well done to all the super readers who won a prize from the lucky dip box this week – keep it up over the weekend as we will be checking for winners again on Monday.
Have a lovely weekend.
