Number sentences

I put the apples into the bottom box and I counted them. The number sentence was 4 + 4. There were 8 applies altogether. This is easy for me.

Recognising contractions

I am learning to recognise contractions. I had to circle the words that were contractions. I circled 'I'm' because it was a contraction. I saw the mark next to the 'm' and I know its short for 'I am'. This was easy for me but sometimes I call these words compound words.

Acrostic poem

We are learning to write an acrostic poem. We wrote about spring. It can be tricky to spell words. We enjoyed writing something for each letter. We had to think of a word that started with S, P, R, I, N, G and we had to start our sentence with this letter.

Mrs Bovill typed the stories for us and we helped her publish them. We got to choose a colour for the capital letters, the font and we helped choose the size so our page was full. Our poems look awesome!

We are so proud because Mrs Bovill thinks they are fabulous and we wrote great stories. We are proud because we are poets.

“I was proud when I did the right thing. I like my poem. It was tricky to remember to do each letter of the poem.” PJ.

Spring blossom

Look at our spring blossoms! First we drew the branch going across the page. We coloured our branches using pastel. We made the blossoms by scrunching up tissue paper and gluing them onto our trees. We then made a little bee or butterfly to go on our picture. We sketched our picture and then drew it on our plastic film. Mrs Bovill then cut them out and we glued them onto our picture.

Shape robots

I am learning about shapes. I had to get blocks and trace around them. Then I made a shape robot. I used squares for the robots eyes. I used a circle for his face. This is easy for me.

Using our word of the week and writing about community

I am learning to use the word ‘said’ in my writing. We are learning about community too, so ‘The Bee Lady’ came to visit us. I am so proud of my story. They look lovely, cute cool and super. It can be tricky to spell words like ‘bee’ and to type the words on the computers. The next step for me might be to try again so I can do it quicker. 

I had to choose a bee and I had to write words. Typing was tricky for me. I liked publishing on Comic life.

Root words and their endings

I had to circle the words and the endings. This is a bi tricky for me. The root word of looked is 'look' and the ending is 'ed'. It makes me happy when I do it right.

Writing for a purpose

We published our story. Our story was about mum. Mum was our word of the week and it was going to be mothers day. We wrote our story so Mum could read it. We have been learning that we write for a purpose. The purpose of our story was to tell Mum something we like about her.

"I wrote a story about my mum. I wrote it because she will like it. Writing is easy for me."

End sounds

I am learning to use the beginning and end sounds to help me read new words. 

"I had to choose a picture. I chose the yacht. The end sound is t. I put a peg over the end sound. This is easy for me."

Writing our word of the week

I am learning to use the word of the week in my story writing. I had to use the word see in my story. It is tricky to write words. I can use my word card to help me. I can try and sound out my letters. I am proud when I write my words. I am proud when I find the word I need on my word card. I am proud of my picture I did on Kid Pix.

"My word of the week was 'see'. It is red because it is my word of the week. Story writing is tricky for me. It is tricky to write the words" - PJ 

Before and after numbers

I am learning about numbers that are before and after. It is tricky to know what number comes before and after. It is easy to count up to the number, this helps me know what number comes before. I can use the hundreds board to help me find the numbers before and after.

"I am pointing at number 4. This is easy for me" - PJ 

Using illustrations to help me read

I am learning to use the illustrations to help me read. Illustrations help me read tricky words. I can look at the pictures and find words that match the sounds of the letters I can hear and see. Pictures give me clues when I am reading. They help me know what the story is about. I can talk about the pictures.

“I am pointing to the picture and the words” – PJ.
