We launched into revising our Jolly Phonics sounds and back to practicing how to blend. We also started looking at our first "word family." These are words that rhyme and this week we focused on the "at" family. The children loved making up silly sentences using these words, "The fat cat had a hat." One of my favourite websites is www.starfall.com We are using level 2 now in school but level 1 is still a great revision for our letter sounds. In level 2 we can have a look at the word families and play little games and read short stories using short, simple words. Have a look at this youtube clip showing the at word family.
Here are a few photos of the children in action this week. We have started the gymnastics strand in PE and were practicing our log rolls and balancing and travelling across the benches. Look at all the creative ways the children found.
