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:
-use a plan for my writing
-write and use a range of simple words using my phonic knowledge
-read as I write to make sure my writing makes sense.

I know I am successful when:
-my picture illustrates my writing
-I try words on my own
-I have read my writing and it makes sense.

"First I have to draw a picture. I'm trying to remember words."

Term 1 Reading

I have been learning how to read simple sentences.  I know that when I read a sentence I should point to each word while I read it.  If I get stuck on a word I sometimes look at the picture because that can help me work out what the word says.  Here is a video of me reading in class:

W.A.L.T read basic sentences.

Success Criteria:  I can recognise some basic high frequency words.
                                I can point to the words when I read.
                               I can use the picture in the story to help me read words I don't know.

***Please note:  This video was recorded using the application "photo booth".  It mirrors the image which is why the video shows everything from right to left instead of left to right.
