P2c Reflective Friday 21.9.18

 

Literacy

This week we have been revising spelling some of block 1 tricky words. We wrote them in different ways – some ways were hard!

 

We worked on prediction in our reading group discussions.

 

We continue to enjoy “BEAR” time in class ( Be Excited About Reading) when we all choose books to read together and share with our friends.

 

Cursive writing is tricky  but we have now learned the letters c, o a and d

Everyone has now been given a reading book. Thank you for your support in sending the book to school each day to enable us to engage in follow up work in class.

Numeracy and Maths

Our focus this week has been on using number tracks to count forward and back from a given number.

We named and ordered the 12 months of the year. Some revision at home would also be helpful – particularly what comes before/after.

 

 

Other areas of the curriculum.

In PE we have been developing our fitness and coordination.

 

 

In assembly Mrs Ritchie told us all about the moon. It was fascinating !

 

We discussed what we already knew about penguins and then investigated some more. We learned that not all penguins live in Antarctica – some species live in hot places such as the Galápagos penguins which live in burrows in the Galápagos Islands.

 

Here are some more photos of us exploring our environment and leading our own learning.
