Ll – Letter

Welcome back! We hope the Squad have rested well over this mid-term and we can’t wait for another term of lots of learning and fun! 

Moral conscious theme: Words can hurt- Speak nicely.  

We explained to the Squad that words hurt more than what they think, they need to think about what they say to friends before saying it as well as think about how they would feel if someone said those words to them. We need to show kindness and care towards our friends and be considerate of their feelings. 

Writing and Phonics: This week Squad worked hard on remembering our sight words and received two new sight words for this week “an”, and “we”. The Squad then a dd a worksheet on the “at” family, they had to match the correct words with the pictures followed by tracing each word and writing it independently.  

Mathematics: The Squad completed a fun counting worksheet. They counted the amount of beans and then cut out the numbers and stuck them under the correct amount of beans, we are very proud of how they grasped this concept well needing very little assistance!  

Creative Art: The Squad decorated their very own snakes using paint by making patterns and then added glitter, they thoroughly enjoyed this art activity.  

Music: We have been working very hard on learning and practicing for our concert coming up, the Squad is so excited and can’t wait to show their family an awesome performance! 



See you all on Monday!

This was a fun-filled week with both Valentines Day art and Emotions art. The children created their very own emotions CD by drawing and decorating with glitter. They were very creative with this and had so much fun! For Valentines Day – they created their own card “I love you to pieces” – very sweet!
