What we learnt about this week
In Literacy, students were introduced to the phonics sound of the last letter of the alphabet which is letter z and the formation of the letter z. Students explored objects that begin with that sound. Using phonic as the base of teaching the letter sound, students were able to grasp and was able to sing the letter rhymes with ease. They even did letter ‘z’ using play dough. The students made letter z crafts such as zebra and zoo. Students were also introduced to 5 new sight words as part of the reading process.
For Maths lesson, the students were introduced to a new topic weight. They learn about each student’s weight by using an electronic weighing scale. They were impressed when the electronic weighing scale showed numbers after they stood on top of it. Then they carried out an experiment by weighing one student’s water bottle and objects in the classroom. They determined which one was heavier and lighter.
In Art lesson, they made an iceberg using cotton wool and found out the differences between the formations of iceberg.
Science lessons were focused on our fourth theme of natural phenomenon which is Iceberg. They learnt about the formation of icebergs. They also learnt about the different types of animal’s lives in the North and South Pole.
