This week the children have been working extremely hard with their new english teacher Saoirse. Jordi and Sergi have been looking back on their initial sounds, learning the letters s a t p i and n. We worked on the sounds, words that started with that sound and sang a song for each letter. We also played games using each letter and learned how to form it. Jordi learned the tricky words I and the and put them in silly sentences. The boys worked hard during maths time as well, counting and learning how to write numbers 1-5. It was a great chance to improve their formation of the numbers and Jordi especially loved counting objects and writing the correct number. They loved learning the song ´5 little speckled frogs´´ . They also did a lot of practise of cutting, Sergi improved his technique a lot during this week.
Judit and Sara have put in a lot of hard work this week. Every day they have started with mental maths, a great way to improve on their tables. They have also been doing a short reading comprehension each day and learning to use full sentences in their answers. They then worked hard on singular and plural words. They had a lot of rules to remember but worked very well and impressed me with their knowledge. We have started to read the novel ´The Witches. In the coming weeks we will start a workbook based on the story.
The children have been fabulous this week at tidying up and keeping their school room tidy and organised. It is a very important part of the learning and will have a positive effect on their daily learning. They loved singing the clean up song!
