Time flies when you’re having fun!

What a busy week we have had! In Maths this week we have been learning about time. We have sung the song ‘Days of the Week’  to help us order the days. We have been using rhymes such as ‘Here we go round the mulberry bush’ (adapted to ‘this is the way we brush our teeth’… etc.) to sequence events in the day and created a story map to log the actions of what we do. In literacy we have been independently writing books about our favourite things and writing words and captions for funny pictures.  We have used ICT to take a picture of ourselves as an Emergency worker and imagined what we might say if we were doing so. We have noticed that the children need a push with recognising and reading digraphs and trigraphs in words so will focus more on this in the following weeks.

Digraphs: ch/chick, sh/sheep, th/thumb, ng/strong, qu/queen, ai/rain, ee/tree, ie/pie, oa/goat, oo/oo book/boot, ar/star, or/fork, ur/turnip, ow/cow, oi/boil, er/pepper

Trigraphs: igh/ light, ear/ hear, air/ hair, ure/ pure

Tricky words: I, no, the, to, go, into, he, she, we, me, be, you, are, her, was, all, they, my
