This week P.1 have been learning about the sounds of ‘oo’ and ‘ew’. They have been making and writing words such as ‘book, pool, good, new, dew, chew. They have also been focusing on two tricky words from block 2- ‘her’ and ‘of’ and using them in sentences along with the ‘oo’ and ‘ew’ words.
In our numeracy work P.1 have been working on addition facts and doubles facts. They have been using Topmarks ‘Hit the Button’ games and addition flashcards to become super speedy with the answers.
In their RE work the children listened to ‘The Good Samaritan’ story and talked about how everyone who needs help is our neighbour. The children learned that they can help others during lent by bringing in spare coins to put in the class SCIAF box.
As part of our continuing work on Spring the children have been making bird’s nests with practical materials such as twigs, grass, moss and cones. They have enjoyed doing an art activity where they made birds in their nests with coloured paper, paint and paper plates. They look really good up in the Spring tree and some of P.1a are proudly showing them off.
