We have been busy estimating, comparing and measuring in Maths this week. The children were able to order themselves from shortest to tallest. We measured how many baby steps and giant steps it took to cross the room and we measured the distances on a map of Tir na nog! The children know lots of great new maths words: long, longer, longest! Short, shorter, shortest! Wide, wider, widest! And...' The same length as'
Have a look at our map!
We are learning how to write procedures in English.
We discussed what we would need to make Rice Krispie buns. We wrote these items in a list.
Then we talked about how to make the buns. We planned each step and teacher wrote it on the board. Then we made Rice Krispie buns by following the procedure. Step 6 was our favourite!
* We used a hob instead of a microwave!
a cushion to school tomorrow! We will be watching a play in the hall and it will be more comfortable if the children have a cushion to sit on!
Our sound this week is /oo/ /oo/. A little girl got a cuckoo clock for her birthday and at 4 O'clock the little cuckoo popped out and said, uu oo.
Try these words and see which /oo/ sounds rights:
Can you cook food on the moon?
Look at the big cats in the zoo.
This week we were learning the sound /ee/ /or/
We sing these words to the tune of 'Twinkle Twinkle' to remember the sounds that the letters /ee/ and /or/ make.
See the donkey in it's stall,
Ee or, ee or
is it's call.
Here are some /ee/ /or/ words and sentences to dictate to your child. He/she will be able to sound it out and write the words.
1. Do not beep your horn in the morning.
2. Did you feed the sheep with a fork?.
