We're going on a bear hunt......

Mrs Divall - 29 Jan 2015

We have been busy learning from the core text 'we're going on a bear hunt' this week.!

I am very proud of all of your children...they are really enthusiastic about their learning....especially their writing activities!
This week, one of the writing activities was to write a simple clue(s) so that the reader could guess what was inside the cave (it didnt have to be a bear- lots of the children had some fabulously creative ideas!).  I was really impressed at their ever improving independence in hearing the next sound in words.  I hope your chidlren are showing interest in writing at home.  It can be really fun making a dinner menu or even a tiny diary of fun things that have happened each week. To encourage your children to write independently, help them to hear the sounds in words, not the letter names!  Also, sometimes longer words are spelt incorrectly - but we are hoping for children to make phonetically plauisible attempts so please do praise your child for writing and having a 'can-do' attitude (e.g. 'because' may look like 'bcoz')

Next week we are learning from the core text 'where the wild things are.'  Unfortunately I do not have any spare copies of this text to lend out to you, but if you are interested and would like to have a look at it please pop in one night after school.  It's a very good book to teach from - but I know it can be slightly trickier to get hold of because it's an older text.

We have concentrated a lot on 3D shapes this week.  'Polly pyramid' 'coney cone-head' and 'cecil cylinder' have been some of your children's favourite characters.  Please have a look at home with your child and see if you can find any of these shapes as real life objects.

As always, I have included tricky words, phonics information and a new reading book for your child.

Please do date and sign your child's reading record every time you read...the more comments and intials you leave in the record, the more rewardsa nd prizes your child will have at school!

Have a great weekend...

Mrs Divall :)

Thanks for the information, it is always very useful as when I ask Daniel what he has done at school I usually get the answers "nothing", "don't know" or "just had fun"! Good to know what he is actually working on. Christina Halliday (Daniel Moorey's mum)
Miss Christina Halliday - 29 Jan 2015 - 17:23
agree with above dont worry Christina i get the same answer the nothing word is very good in summer vocabulary as well as no thank you Miss Divall in keeping us informed that they do work and not just play as that what get from summer
Miss debbie martin - 29 Jan 2015 - 18:17
Hurray 2 comments already! :) It makes me smile that the children say they have played all day. That means we are disgusting their learning in a fun way...for us and for them! Thank you for looking at the page, it's fun and interesting get feedback. See you tomorrow!

Oh dear my auto correct changed 'disguising' to 'disgusting!!' Silly iPhone!
Mrs Amy Divall - 29 Jan 2015 - 19:34
can i ask what they planted in the flower pots summer said flowers just wanted to know what they was please
Miss debbie martin - 29 Jan 2015 - 20:31
They are very very late planted daffodils donated by Marie curie. Hopefully they can grow and we can plant them and raise some money for them. :)

It is really great to see here what the kids are doing in school as my story is similar to the ladies above. All I get from Aashna is " I played and I did painting":). She can't wait to get to school every morning though and that is because she has so much fun, making things and learning to read and write in an interactive way!

I love the names for the 3d shapes such a clever way to get children to remember them. Kierat has told me some interesting stories about Polly pyramid and her pointing.
