Literacy Labs

This week in Literacy Labs we have been making containers to transport our dragon. The children had art straws and lots of problems to solve. I was super impressed by the ideas that they planned and then transferred into their models!!

Well done guys 😊

Phonics

This week in phonics our sounds have been ure, air and oo (the short sound like in book or cook)

We found these quite tricky, especially ure. Something that might help is talking through some words where the spelling is the same for ure but it sounds different.

eg Pleasure, treasure, pure, cure, insure.

Can you think of any more?

Could you write them out and then highlight the sound?

Thanks for your continued support.

 

Catapults

The children in Class 6 showed some fabulous teamwork today when they were making their catapults to capture a dragon 🐉 They had to work together to make their catapults, and to test them out-I look forward to reading all of your instructions that you will write tomorrow!!

Well done!

Teamwork makes the dream work!! 😊

Literacy Labs

This week we have started Literacy Labs in Year1. The children were fantastic at exploring and making dragons, we tried to make dragons that could fly!! The children worked together and solved problems to construct their flying dragons- We had so much fun testing them out! Well done Class 6!

Phonics

This week in year 1 we have been covering ai, ee, oo and oa in our phonics sessions. Maybe you could ask your children to write some words with those sounds in like the examples above-don’t forget your sound buttons!!

If you bring in your sounds I will be giving out house points-I wonder how many words you can think of?
