KD- off to a great start!

This week in KD we have been busy reading the Big Books, Mrs Wishy Washy, The Sly Fox and Little Red Hen and Smartypants. It has been lots of fun acting out the stories and singing songs that relate to the books.
We have been introduced to “s” and “a” and have learnt actions to help us remember their sounds. Everyone has been trying hard to use the correct pencil grip and we have been doing lots of writing and drawing every day!
On the Smart Board we have been doing story sequencing activities and maths games which are very fun, and we have visited the computer lab to learn the correct way to turn them on and off and to play some fun games. All the children in KD now have a buddy from 5/6F who will spend time with them at lunch times 2-3 times per week. We will also be doing some fun craft activities with 5/6F later in the term.
Next week we look forward to beginning our reading groups and learning 2 more new sounds!
Well done to all of KD for settling in so quickly to school! What a great year we are going to have!
