# Thursday’s Learning – 21/05/2020

### Welcome To Thursday’s Learning!

#### R/1KJ & R/1FD Single Lesson

For our single lessons today, we continued to look at the letter sound ‘oa’.

We talked about the sound it makes, and how this sound is a blend of two different sounds ‘o’ and ‘a’ but when we blend them together these sounds don’t stay seperate but blend to make a different sound.

Students then spent time practicing their writing of this sound. They also drew some picture of words they knew had this sound in them. ‘Boat’, ‘Goat, ‘Toast’.

#### Spanish

Please refer to the Spanish blog for todays learning.

#### PrayerÂ

Today we looked at the song: We have the whole word in our hands.

Students were then asked to reflect on the following question:

How do we care for what God has created for us?

• Richard – we could recycle things like bottles and milk containers.
• Nikolas – we could recycle plastic
• Monique – i could take somebodies dog for a walk
• Mikayla – I could help feed someones dog
• Charlee – i could care for a dog
• Alana – i can take care and love my brother
• Ziggy – i will feed my cat
• Viraj will take care of my brother
• Edel – i will pick up paper

#### Mini MathsÂ

We watched a short clip on 3D shapes to further develop our understanding of the different between 2D and 3D shapes.

Investigations

In the home corner a menu was put out as a provocation…. Naomi and Monique quickly decided they would make their own restaurant menu.

• Naomi – spaghetti is \$2 dollars, apple juice is \$3dollars
• Monquie – my menu is like hungry jacks…chips, nuggets it costs 4 dollars and the chips cost 2 dollars

At the lego table many creations were happening – a spaceship, a plane, a dragon and a pyramid!!
