2D Shape.

We have been learning all about about 2d shapes. We went on a shape hunt around the school to see if we could find any 2d shapes. We used the ipads to record what we found.

Halloween

This week we have been using Halloween as inspiration for our play. In the Role-play area we are dressing up. Ms. McHale has buried some creepy toys in our sand pit for us to find. Our castle has turned into a haunted castle and we have been making masks. Next week we will make scary monsters out of playdough.

The Restaurant

In September we were learning all about the restaurant. At play time we took turns working in the restaurant in our role-play area. We made some food from play dough, built restaurants with the blocks and made chef hats.

Struggling with blending?? Don’t worry!

Blending is the process of saying the individual sounds in a word then running them together to make the word. For instance sounding out d-o-g and making dog. It is a technique every child will need to learn, and it improves with practice. To start with you should sound out the word and see if a child can hear it, giving the answer if necessary. Some children take longer than others to hear this. The sounds must be said quickly to hear the word. It is easier if the first sound is said slightly louder. Try little and often with CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) words like s-a-t, p-i-n, p-a-t and   t-a-n.

Please don’t panic if your child is finding this difficult, just keep modelling how to do it and they will begin to hear it in time. Here are some videos that may help. Good luck!
