Oak Class have been enjoying exploring the numicon resources. We played a game where the numicon plates were hidden in a feely bag and we had to identify them just by feeling them. It was quite tricky. Then we rolled a dice and challenged our partners to find the plate that matched the number on the dice. We weren't allowed to peek!
In Oak we are continuing to learn sounds in words each week as well as "WOW" words and tricky words.
Have you tried playing Obb and Bob on the Letters and Sounds website? See if you can put the right words in the right places, using the diagraph sounds – ch, sh, th and ng.
Can you go on a shape hunt around your house and find these three shapes?
Click on the links below for some useful websites for learning how to recognise sounds as well as blending them together:
http://www.crickweb.co.uk/Early-Years.html – This is a fun website to aid children's learning across the curriculum.
http://www.letters-and-sounds.com/phase-2.html – This site works through each "Phase" of learning the sound of each letter – we will begin at Phase 2 and hopefully move on to Phase 3 before Christmas.
http://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/3-5-years/counting – Top Marks is a wonderful site for children to explore number and shape through a vast amount of games.
