Prep 1: Week 5

Date: 15th May 2020 @ 8:28pm

Prep 1 Class Blog Week beginning 11th May


This week Prep 1 have been working hard on identifying 2, 3 and 4 syllables in words. Using a variety of activities the girls have practised sounding out these words, writing them and even building compound words back together. The girls have joined in with dojo videos and I have seen some fabulous examples of the work they have carried out with this.


In Maths we have continued our work on single digit addition and subtraction calculations, playing lots of games to support this learning and further exploring of one more and one less to 20.


Our topic work has been, ‘Environment’ and the girls have embraced this creating rain catchers, making weather charts and producing wonderful bug hotels.


Aoife has particularly embraced calculation work by setting up a tuck shop at home. She has been doing a roaring trade selling sweets to her family! Well done Aoife!


Lucia has been so busy this week, she has been working super hard. Lucia is doing lots of reading practise and this is evident at our weekly guided reading session where she reads with fantastic fluency!! Well done Lucia!!


Finally I would like to share some work from Sufei and Freya, this actually relates to last week’s animal project, but both girls have sent me some amazing pictures of how they embraced learning about animals.


Here is Sufei and the amazing animals she made with her family. Sufei made butterflies, frogs and hedgehogs. Well done Sufei!!


Freya embraced learning all about animals and their habitats. She created a wonderful home for two snails and produced this wonderful labelled diagram of her snail! Well done Freya!!


Finally, I would like to say a huge well done to all the Prep 1 girls, I have seen so many examples of the hard work you are all doing and I am very proud of each and every one of you!! Well done!!
