Each week, we select a phoneme or grapheme to use as a focus for our handwriting, to make sure we are regularly using our sounds for reading and spelling. Today, we used the ou grapheme. We played “Walk it, Talk it, Write it” outside, by running the formation of the sound and using chalk to practise on the playground. We then played partner games to practise our formation and completed a phoneme hunt in a text.
Persuasive Writing: Save the rainforest!
We read the poem “The Fog” and visualised the fog as a living character using charcoal and sketching pencils. With this as a starting point, we explored poetic features and created our own poetry, using personification to describe different types of weather.
