This week, we have been learning lots of different things. In phonics we have learnt s, a, t and p and in maths we have been looking at how to arrange and sort different objects. With Miss Tsang, we have been thinking about the world around us and have been on a nature hunt. We have also spent time with our Year 6 Buddies - we have been very, very busy!
We have had another very busy week in Foundation Class this week! The children are settling into school life brilliantly and are particularly enjoying their phonics lessons. We have learnt 4 new sounds in phonics this week ‘i, n, m, d’. Children have been practising matching the new phonemes to objects, forming the graphemes in the sand and play dough and they have been practising writing the graphemes on their boards. In maths we have been comparing different amounts, using the vocabulary ‘more’, ‘less’ and ‘fewer’. We have enjoyed building towers to help us with our learning. We also loved our PE lesson in the hall, it was great fun! We practised our jumping skills this week.
What a week! We have been very busy and have been reading lots of stories!
This week we have learned 4 new sounds in phonics - g o c k and the tricky word ‘I’. We have also been practising lots of blending using all the sounds we know.
With Miss Tsang, we have been reading ‘The Gingerbread Man’ and have been adding actions to the story to help us to recall it. We’re looking forward to doing some more work on The Gingerbread Man next week.
in Maths, we have been comparing different measures, using the language: bigger, smaller, heavier, lighter. We have also looked at patterns. We read the stories ‘Dear Zoo’ and ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ to help us with our learning.
We have also been reading the book ‘You Choose’ as part of our ‘No Outsiders’ work. As a class, we discussed all the things that we like - chocolate, stormy weather and ice cream we’re all popular choices!
And to end the week, we not only went to our first assembly, but we performed in front of the school and our families! Miss Tsang, Mrs Wakefield and Mrs Bland are so proud!
