The end of November is near….I cannot believe it. 🍁
🌟This week we are shaking things up a bit in P1 – Rearranging the seating in the classroom and creating new reading groups for everyone.
🔔We are also beginning to “rehearse” a simple Nativity performance that I hope to film and put together…somehow (watch this space). We will be doing this while sticking to restrictions and guidance so unfortunately we are limited in activities this year – but I have had my creative hat on.
📚 Reading – pupils have reading to do each night, this is essential. You should encourage them to sound out the sounds in each word and say them if they meet words they are unsure of (e.g. h-a-t is hat). Each group has stage 2 or 3 words to learn, this is really important for progression through the stages.
📊 Maths/Number- This week we will be looking at: Counting to 20, ordering numbers and counting backwards as well as identifying amounts in a ten frame. (playing dominoes and games like snakes and ladders with 2 dice is a great way to support this). We are also continuing to look at data handling through tally marks and bar charts.
🌈PROUD CLOUD ☁️ – Have a look on Seesaw for info on “proud cloud” help I have asked for.
💻 SEESAW ACTIVITIES – There is a CVC (Consonant, vowel, consonant) word activity (suggested day-Tuesday) and a count and match activity (suggested day-Thursday). Digital learning is quicker, more eco friendly and often involves less writing, which can be off putting for children. If you do require a paper copy just let me know and I can print it. If there are issues with opening these activities please get in touch as sometimes I do not notice faults right away.
