We have been learning...

This week, we have been learning the routines of class so the children know exactly what to do. Today we practised basic facts and spelling. We also made lanterns to celebrate The Year of the Horse for Chinese New Year. Thank you Kareena for bringing in your Chinese fan to show the class - we loved it!
For spelling we learned what the vowels are and sang, "A, E... A, E, I, O, U ooo, and sometimes y." Then we learned how to write the short a sound, like the "a" in "hat." We practised our words with a multisensory approach by making the sounds with:
  • our mouths
  • playdough
  • felt tip pens
  • chalk
We practised basic facts (answering maths problems with quick recall) to see which level we are at - check out the Basic Facts page above.

Next week, we will start spelling and basic facts homework.Well done Krishna and Sancy who have started early!
