Self Portrait

First we had to draw what we thought we looked like. Then we talked about the shape of our face and where all the parts on our head went. We had to think carefully about all the little bits, like the shapes of our eyes and what our eyebrows looked like. We had to really concentrate and think about how to draw the lines for our faces.

Term 1 writing sample

I am learning to:
-write and use a range of simple words using my phonic knowledge
-read as I write to make sure my writing makes sense.
-consistently use capital letters and fullstops correctly.
-spell some high frequency words correctly
-add some detail to my writing.

I know I am successful when:
-I try words on my own
-I have read my writing and it makes sense.
-my writing has fullstops and capital letters in the right place.
-I use words from list 1A and 1B in my writing
-I can identify the detail I have written e.g. who, what where, when.

Term 1 Reading

I have been learning how to read unknown words.  I know that I need to look at the first and last letter of the word and I can also look at the pictures to help me if I get stuck.  Here is a video of me reading.

W.A.L.T look at the first and last sounds in words..

Success Criteria:  I know the sounds that different letters make.
                                I can work out what a word says by sounding out the first and last letter.
                                I can use the picture in the story to help me read words I don't know.
