This week, our Pupil of the week is Emilia. She has shown she is a Successful Learner by using her communication, literacy and numeracy skills in different settings, and an Effective Contributor when working wonderfully as part of a team. Great job! 🙂
We have focused our RWI lessons on the sounds “ow” (as in snow) and “oo”, and have practiced our reading, spelling and writing of words with this sounds. You can click on each sound to practice at home too!
As part of the Scotland’s Week we have learnt the meaning of some Scottish words with Robert Burns’ poem “A Red, Red Rose”, such as luve or bonnie; and wrote a fragment of this poem. We also listened to a poetess reciting it, and heard the song made after this poem while writing it. They did a great job!
Linked to this poem, and Robert Burns Night celebrated this week, we have done a cooperative Art activity to decorate our class display. You can see below what a fantastic job they have done!
We have revisited last lesson’s learning about the analogue clock, the clock’s hands function and time facts (hours in a day and minutes in an hour). We have been working to develop a deeper understanding of how the hands tell us the time, and focused on the half past concept. They can practice telling the time at home if you have an analogue clock too!
Next Tuesday is the celebration of the Lunar New Year in many Asian countries. This week we learnt about the Vietnamese Tết Festival for New Year. We talked about some of the traditions, believes and decorations around this special date. They worked together very hard to create our classroom decorations, well done everyone!
During this week, we continued with the module Keep Connected, and focused on the family as part of our back up team. They have done an amazing job creating their own Family Tree. You can find a picture of some examples below.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me through the comments or by writing to the school email and they will forward it to me.
Have a lovely weekend!
