Year 1 and 2 enjoyed a bonfire party on Wednesday afternoon. Over the past half term the children have been busy learning new skills such as cutting food with a knife and learning about the artist Andy Goldsworthy. The children then made 2 different snacks for the party and sparklers. They have also been learning 2 different firework songs in their French lessons. A great afternoon was had by all and the snacks were delicious.
We are following a phonics scheme called 'Song of Sounds' this year. Every lesson we sing the 'sound song' which is how the children remember their sounds.
Each week we are learning the same sound but with multiple spellings. e.g. /ee/ bee, /ea/ beans, /e_e/ athlete and /y/ happy.
The children really enjoy our phonics lessons, especially our extended session where we play phonics games!
We have recently begun using a website called GoNoodle in class.
GoNoodle has some brilliant videos which promote movement and mindfullness where the children can dance, practise their balancing skills, have brain breaks and take part in short yoga sessions.
These videos have been a great help when we start to feel a little tired from working really hard!
This is one example of the many GoNoodle videos we use in class!
