Phonics

In Phonics this week the children have learnt about the letters Gg, Oo, Cc, Kk and the word and.  They have been encouraged to say, “this is the letter ____ and it makes a ____sound.” The children have used their arms to draw the letters in the air and chant the formation rhymes – you will notice that these rhymes are on each video. The children have also learnt actions to help learn each sound.

They have been encouraged to say, “this is the letter ____ and it makes a ____sound.” The children have used their arms to draw the letters in the air and chant the formation rhymes – you will notice that these rhymes are on each video. The children have also learnt actions to help learn each sound. As well as new sounds, they explored what happens when sounds which have been learnt so far are put together to create words – we talked about sound buttons to support their developing reading and writing skills.

Abbots Langley Carnival Float

Months of planning and preparation involving all year groups across Tanners Wood school came together this weekend to create an amazing float all about Paddington 2. Well done and thank you to all involved, particularly the Year 2 parents who have given up so much of their time to make everything happen and to the stars of the show – the children who were part of the parade. We are proud to have won the award for ‘Best use of recycled materials’!

Exploring Shadows

Ash and Beech class had been talking about how the sun can create shadows. We went out about 10am and drew around each others shadows. We also drew around some toy animals and left them outside. We then went back out at different times of the day to see if the length or position of the shadows had changed. We discovered that they had changed. Can you remember why?

Plastic Bottle Greenhouse

Firstly, thank you for all your donations of 2L plastic bottles. We have been busy using them to put our greenhouse together with the help of Eco Club. We have completed one side of roof which takes 95 bottles! We need more donations and if anyone would be willing to come in and help after school one day please let the office know.

Also, please could we have no more milk bottles. Thank you again for your support.
