Ava’s Award-Winning Dragon!

Well done Ava!

Ava’s amazing design has been selected as a winner from lots of entries from all over Doncaster, in the Doncaster Book Award ‘Design-a-Dragon’ Competition. Ava put lots of effort into her Dragoon design at book club and at home and her design has been chosen as a winner by the Book Award Committee! Ava has now been invited to a ceramic arts day with a professional artist during half term, where she will be able to bring her design to life and make her dragon design out of clay!

Ava and her winning dragon!

Congratulations Ava – I’m sure you’re going to have an amazing time!

 

A wonderful week…

This week in Class 6, we have been reading the story ‘Beegu’ and spent lots of time comprehending and inferring the text. Today, we got to read the complete story and create some Talk4Writing symbols in collaborative groups. The children thoroughly loved the book and worked brilliantly sharing beautifully together.

The children in my phonics group have been working so hard this week on reading and writing words with the zz, ch, qu and ur digraph. They have particularly loved hunting outside for words, finger writing with paint and even writing on the carpet in chalk. Keep up the hard work! 🙂

WOW writing!

Lucy-May, Ollie, Harlow, James, Dante and Jacob knocked my socks off with their amazing instructions for how to make animal biscuits. They all tried incredibly hard and were given a big thumbs up from Mrs Ogle when they visited her to show off their fabulous work. Well done everybody! I’m very proud of you! 🙂

 

     

Fancy doing a little extra at home?

If you are looking for a little extra to do at home with your child, please practice spotting these digraphs and trigraphs on their own and in words. See if your child can read and spell some words containing these sounds.

Your child will be awarded with 10 house points each time they read or write 5 words.

With many thanks for your support in your child’s learning.

Fabulous Phonics

In KS1 we teach phonics every day to support our children with their reading and writing skills. This week we have been learning the wh, ey, ew and oe digraphs.

 

I wonder if you could practice reading and writing words with these digraphs in at home…

wh – when, why, what, who, where

ey – money, donkey, valley, honey, turkey

ew – new, crew, blew, knew, pew

oe – toe, foe, sloe

 

Ryan and Faith worked so hard today and were able to put their new learnt words into sentences. Well done! 🙂
