We have been learning about the letters t and i which are code for the /t/ and /i/ sound. In your child’s phonics wallet you will find the sheets that they have completed in the lessons this week.
We have then had a go at forming our letters correctly. We have been working on our pencil grip using our ‘froggy legs’ and trying to form the letters correctly using the word patters/rhymes to support us.
We have introduced the children to our handwriting ‘patter’ to support them when forming their letters.
We have been using our skills of blending and segmenting to have a go at hearing the sounds all through the spoken words.
This week we have explored the concept of matching. The children have created matching pairs using natural resources. We explored the definition of a pair (a set of two things used together). The children then participated in a ‘hunt the pair game’ looking for matching socks, we then discussed the patterns and colours of the socks to help us match them.
This week we have learnt how to say hello in Spanish. (Hola)
In music we listened to Happy by Pharrel Williams. We talked about how the music made us feel and about the things it made us think of. We enjoyed performing the song ‘1, 2, 3, 4, 5’ and practised showing generosity by giving compliments to each other about the performances.
