This week we have been working with two new sounds “nk” and “are”. We have practiced our listening and spelling skills by identifying and writing words with this sounds. We have also revisited sounds we worked with in the previous week, and played to think of words with the sounds we have learned along the year. During our RWI lessons, we exercised our letter formation skills and our writing, reading and sentence composition.
We have also been asked to do posters to inform everybody about the School Fair. The have worked hard on it, and put all their creativity to make them look festive. They did an amazing job 🙂
We have started with the Money block this week. We have been sharing our previous experiences and knowledge of the British Pound, coins/notes and its value (1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1, £2, £5, £10 and £20). We have been practicing our ability to recognise each of them and to order them by its value. The did a fantastic job!
We worked hard to keep developing our number bonds knowledge up to 100, and completed an activity adding 5, 10 and 20 to different amounts with help of the “100 square”. Skills that we will use in a near future to count money.
This week we also reviewed our knowledge of the months of the year, and their order. We started an activity to find out the months before and after the ones give; we will continue with it next week.
This week we been widening our knowledge about oceans and talked about the 5 different layers it presents. We tried our best to learn their names (some quite tricky) and discussed their features: temperature, pressure, sunlight, depth…
We have also learned about some of the interesting creatures that can live in each layer. They really enjoyed creating a layer’s poster in which they included important information about each of them, and draw some of the creatures. They did very good team work!
We have put together the cooperative map they were working on last week too, it looks great! You can find a picture below.
During the last few weeks, we have been learning about the name of the parts of the body in Spanish. We have been playing games, dancing, singing and practicing our listening with actions games. We have also included what we have previously learned in the different activities we were doing. They have worked very hard! Muy bien hecho:)
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!
