This week we are working on the /ou/ blend. /ou/ as in ‘shout’ or ‘mouth’. I have sent home new orange sound mats so you can practise at home as well.
We are also working on the story of 9 and have started a new story, The Little Red Hen.
I will also be sending home sight words this week. We have already practised these in school but they should continue to be practised as part of homework.
All for now.
We have been working on the /oo/ digraph. It makes two different sounds depending on the word. Think of /oo/ as in ‘balloon’ and /oo/ as in ‘cook’.
We have also been discussing time in Maths. We begin with the seasons, days of the week, day time, night time etc. We will look at the clock later in the year.
Finally, we had a great day today at the cake sale!
Thank you to Mairéad for the photos!
I wanted to have a photo of us enjoying our delicious homemade pancakes which were delivered to our door for little break, but I was too slow! See below for the remnants of a successful pancake party!
Thank you to all the parents, siblings and volunteers who helped out with the pancakes and the cake sale. It was a very enjoyable day!
Make sure to have a look at the Discover Primary Science blog on our school website to see how we got on investigating the strength of different magnets.
There is no Grow in Love homework tonight. There will be reading, English copy, sight words and fun book as usual.
Notes went home yesterday regarding the next PIP meeting. It will take place on Wednesday 31st January at 1.05 pm.
Thank you to those parents who have returned the slip already. Looking forward to seeing you then!
We read a great story all about a rabbit who manages to save a little bit of winter for his friend the hedgehog.
We did a lovely job drawing our favourite parts!
