We have had a wonderful week 2 in PP!
It was great to see everyone’s happy and excited faces after the long weekend! This week has been filled with exploring, building, laughing, investigating, sharing and joy.
Both PP classes have shown a huge interest in box construction this term. They have been creative engineers building bags, animals, rocket and race cars! We love to see how the PP’s use their imagination to recycle old boxes and turn them into something special. We have started to look at how to make a plan to go along with our construction. We have used the plans as a guide to making our creation. We have then used arrows to label the different parts of our creations. We have started to make plans for block, lego and mobilo creations too! Have a look at some of our work below! Well done on having a go to sound out different words in your plans PP’s! We love to see phonetic spelling (spelling a word based on the sounds you hear not the correct spelling) in PP, this is an important developmental milestone in learning to write!
If you have any boxes at home please send them in so that we can put them to great use!
We have been busy in literacy this week learning to sound out and write CVC words, write sentences, respond to stories and read decodable books. We have almost finished learning all of the sounds in the alphabet- well done PP’s!
CVC words are words created using a consonant, vowel, and a consonant. Vowels are the letters A, E, I, O and U, while consonants are all the other letters in the alphabet. Some examples of CVC words can include ‘new’, ‘hat’, ‘cot’, ‘lit’, and ‘pit’. Learning how to read and write CVC words can be lots of fun. You might like to try some of these games at home; using magnetic letters, painting letters, play dough letters or asking your child to tell you the sounds in different CVC words in the car on the way to school.
Here are some snaps of us learning in Literacy this week!
We are excited to see what week 3 brings! Bye for now!
Love PPG & PPB
