This week in Literacy we were have been learning ‘oa’ as in coat and ‘ow’ as in glow. We have found that ‘oa’ is mainly found in the middle of a word and ‘ow’ is mainly found at the end.  We have also been practising our new tricky words – one and you.

In Numeracy we have been continuing our learning about subtraction and have also looked at double numbers this week.  We noticed a pattern in the answers to the double number questions as they move up in 2’s (e.g. 1+1 = 2, 2+2 = 4 etc).  We enjoyed splatting this number pattern on our online hundred square.  You could play with this at home –

We continued our work on Money, adding coins to work out the cost of an item and choosing a range of coins to make up an amount to buy something.  We are getting very good at identifying coins now!

In Health and Wellbeing, we were learning about the plant life cycle.  We talked about plants and what they need to grow.  Everyone created their own plant life cycle, learning that seeds become seedlings which then grow into plants.  We investigated some parts of flowers and plants on our light box and loved using the magnifying glasses to see these up close.  We had fun planting our own class sunflower and we are going to take turns to check if it needs watered each morning.  We’re looking forward to watching it grow!

Have a lovely weekend.
