Today in spelling we looked at words that have oi and oy in them. We noticed that most words with the sound in the word have oi (except for names) but if it’s at the end of the word, we use oy. Below are some words that have the oi or oy sound in them.
Today in spelling we learnt about compound words. Compound words are when you take 2 words and put them together to make 1 word. Here’s a video you can watch and sing along to to help you learn some compound words.
I would like everyone to share a compound word you know in the comments below. Let’s see how many compound words we can think of!!!!
This week JAS participated in swimming lessons down at Aquamoves. I would like to say a huge thank you to the following parents: Karamjit, Darren, Alban, Elida, Tanya, Lucy, Grace, Leah, Belinda and Ann, who helped to change and dress the students during the week. Without your help, the week would not have run as smoothly or as quickly and I really appreciated the extra hands!
Here is some of the students’ writing about their swimming experience and some pictures of them in action!
