Writing and Phonics: This week we completed our new set of CVC family words: “an”. We completed a worksheet which required the children to use their sound buttons and sound out each word along with matching the correct image. We then wrote sentences in our thin lined books, and they did so wonderfully using the cat method. Keep it up!   

Maths: Our mathematics lesson this week was focused on our 2D and 3D shapes. We had a discussion on the different shapes, where we can find objects with that same shape (in the shops, or in the classroom) and the properties of that shape. We are beginning to use terms such as vertices (for corners) and edges for (sides). Lastly, we drew 2D shapes and the Squad are coming along nicely. 

Life Skills: “Risk Takers”- This week we discussed the different types of risks that we can take. That every day we are faced with risks but it is how we handle them that makes the situation good or bad. 

Art: During art this week we made our very own cars. Firstly, we drew ourselves as if we were driving a vehicle and then we chose our very own wheels that we could stick on. It is adorable watching them get so creative by choosing different colour bottle lids or being precise and using all of the same size bottle caps. 

Afrikaans: For Afrikaans we completed a comprehension about Ben die Hond. 

Cooking & Music: For cooking this week, the squad made their very own healthy trucks using bread, oranges, cheese and banana. The children buttered their own bread and cut their own cheese. Working on their fine motor skills. Well done! 

FunFit Sports: The children played an aiming game where they had to grab a ball and throw it into a bucket. The game increased by difficulty by the bucket moving further back each round. Well done! 

 It has been a great week. Assessments are in full swing so please could we ask that your child attend school every day. 





If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
