Our learning this week in P1-4

This week the P2s and P3s have been learning about ‘double defence’ in phonics. This is when the magic e,i,y have their magic blocked by a double letter, such as in ‘yelled’ or ‘Peggy’.

We have been writing poetry about apples. We imagined that an apple was lots of different things such as a yo-yo, a clowns’ nose or an eyeball. We learned that this is called metaphor. We will perform our poetry at the Harvest Festival.

In maths the Circles have been practising counting in 2s and 5s. The Squares have been learning their 2,3,4 and 5 times tables. The Fractions have been working with time- reading a digital and analogue clock.#

In gym we learned how to do a push pass. We push the hockey ball across the ground with our hockey stick and then past our partner.
