Term 1 Week 2!

How have we completed a full fortnight at school already?! :) 

Once again, we have been busy bees in Ivy Class; we have been super busy in all our subjects so check out what we've been up to!

In Literacy this week, we have been learning to apply our sounds to words. We are getting better at recognising our beginning sounds and using the digraphs sh, th and ch. We have also been concentrating on capital letters, full stops and adjectives; we got very creative making collages of desert islands. We experienced gritty sand, spiky shells, cold water and slimy seaweed and listened to the whooshing ocean and noisy seagulls. We then used these adjectives to describe our fab islands! We also practiced our phonics, reading and handwriting...

In Maths, we have been learning to read, count, represent and order numbers to 20 - we can even write them in written form, i.e. one, two, three... 

In the afternoons, we have been super stars;

  • in PE, we have been learning about Dance, concentrating on how we can move our bodies in time to music,
  • in RE, we have been learning what is special to us and what is special to Christians,
  • in Science, we have learnt about the seasons, what are their qualities and how to dress for the right season
  • in IPC, we have been learning about the 7 continents of the world! Busy explorers we are!

Thank you for your hard work this week Ivy Class! Have a fantastic weekend!
