Literacy Activities

Today was Christmas Jumper Day.

 

This was to help raise money for our school funds.

Making connections in literacy we looked and discussed the designs of our 

own Christmas Jumper and then we had the opportunity to

observe and compare our peers.

 

To conclude the activity we designed a jumper and labelled the parts

developing our vocabulary.

Words of the week:

in, can, like

 

We played find the words around the classroom with the aim to help recognise and recall each word.

Afterwards we coloured coded each word discussing tall, small and long letters and saying each letter as well as counting the letters in each word.

 

To finish we practiced writing the words on whiteboards - emphasising correct pencil grip.

                                          Myself

As part of our theme.

We have been learning obout how we look, feel etc. from discussions, sharing books and ICT links.

 

Today - we looked at the features of our face using mirrors, the children had the opportunity to explain to their peers what they saw.

Afterwards they made their face on a digestive biscuit using icing sugar (which we made together) and sweets.

This was a lovely treat and best of all we got to take our biscuit face home to eat it- yummy!

Building words -using individual letters.

 

We are learning to use our sounds to make words.

 

This is a difficult concept- but we know that Practise makes Perfect!

 

This is an important concept that we need to develop and it is vitally important that sounds and building of words and recall of high frequency words are reinforced at home every night!!
