P2 cheetahs. Our week. Friday 1st June

Literacy

  • we revised all our tricky words and are  practising  ” again ” and “four”
  • In spelling we worked on adding ing to a verb giving it a short vowel sound – e.g. pat, bat,
  • we practised handwriting  h, b p,u,w,y   in our new lined jotter
  • We discussed the play and then wrote  some very impressive reports giving our own opinions.
  • we discussed why we need rules and wrote words in different types of colourful writing like zig zags, dotty .

 

On our Spelling City page, you can access the tricky word lists and some fun games to play for extra practice

Thank you for your continued support  with practising key vocabulary and signing the reading record.

  • We are continuing to work in class on predicting, analysing and discussing the wide range of texts we read – including, but not limited to, our home reading books. We would encourage the children to make personal choices of reading material from home and library – school reading books are only a small part of becoming an avid reader.

Numeracy & Mathematics

  • We practised making groups and revised our 2, 5 and 10 times tables
  • We discussed the days of the week and their order using “yesterday” and “tomorrow”. Some of us found this very tricky.
  • we used our knowledge to measure and compare length , capacity and weight
