After this students spilt into 4 different literacy based groups and completed the following learning.
- Guided Reading
- Word Work – High Frequency Words

Students spent some time relaxing and reflecting on their day. Ready to continue the learning for the last part of their day.
We spent some time in the Library borrowing new books for the week, and practising our reading strategies to ourselves after borrowing.
R/1KJ Single Lesson
We spent some time practicing our letter sound for this week – ie
We talked about the two sounds each letter makes individually, and then the sound it makes when it is together, and how it is called a blend sound.
Students then went and practiced the writing of this letter sound, and thought of words that had this sound and draw images to match.
