|Ms Mc Carthy's Class||
There was some excitement this week with the beginning of December. We had a very special delivery from Santa. We are so lucky because he sent us a "Santa Cam" so that he can peek in at the children and see what kind, helpful things they are doing for each other and to see how hard they are working. I heard he was very impressed with the children so far and hopes they are keeping up the good work at home.
Here are Matthew and Ben speaking in front of the class. They are doing the weather report for us. We also tell our news to the class. It can be very difficult to be patient enough to wait until we hear everyone's news, definitely a work in progress! :) We try to use full sentences also, when answering questions. (For example, "What day will it be tomorrow?" "Tomorrow will be Tuesday.")
In maths, we are started to look at 2D shapes. We focussed on circle and square this week. Most children are very confident when identifiying circles. We are continuing on with our 3 colour patterns. We are also looking at the written numbers 1-3. You might have spotted this in the mornings, as one of our activities. We also used dice this week and matched the number of spots to the correct dice number on a page.
Our Jolly Phonics sounds are getting trickier. This week we were looking at 'V' and 'Y' (as in 'yes' or 'you') Keep going over them at home and identifying words that start with each sound. V and F are quite similar, so do correct pronunciation.
We also started our advent calendar this week. As we cannot give out food in school, our calendar is full of activities and jokes. Here we are on Friday doing our activity. We had to give out 5 hugs and my goodness, it make everyone smile so much. I think we managed a lot more than 5 hugs!
And finally, here we are enjoying some of our other activities in school.
