This week in Aistear we have been continuing with the theme House and Homes. The children designed their dream homes and then built them out of bricks, in the garden we looked for natural materials to build homes for small creatures we also had our home area in the classroom.

In English we finished our letter sounds so we have completed the alphabet and the following diagraphs;

ai ,oa, ie, ee, or, ng, oo, ch, sh, th, qu, ou, oi,ue, er and ar. Please try and practice the letter sounds every day if possible it really does make a difference to the children’s confidence as we move on to the next stage of our reading journey.

We made Diva lamps from clay as part of our Learn Together lesson on Diwali. we also coloured lovely Rangoli patterns.
