Week ending 18th October 2019

Here is a recap of all the new sounds that we have learnt during our Phonics sessions so far this term:

s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g

We have also started to look at key words - I, it, is, in, a, go, the. Some of these words can be sounded out eg i - n - in, however words such as go and the cannot, so the children just need to learn to read them on sight.  Can you spot any of them in books at home? 

We use the Jolly Phonics actions - ask your child and they will show you the action and tell you the sounds that these letters make. 

Can you spot any of these letters at home?  Or find any objects beginning with these sounds.  We also learn how to write these letters in the cursive script, making sure we always start in the correct place.  

If you do have time to practise at home, then little and often is best!

 

Sorry that there are no new photos at the moment - technical issues!  We will update this page when we can.

Week ending 4th October 2019

In Phonics this week we have learnt these new sounds 't', 'p', 'i', and 'n'.  We have also started to look at  key words - I, it, is, and in.  We use the Jolly Phonics actions - ask your child and they will show you the action and tell you the sounds that these letters make.

Week ending 27th September 2019

That was a busy week with the children in full time!  They are settling in really well and getting used to the new routines and expectations, including having lunch in the hall and play on the MUGA.  

Below are some photos to show you what we have been up to this week - picking apples and blackberries, making and eating crumble, doing P.E, exploring numbers and counting, writing letters, making and eating toast, circle time, sharing a story with Mr Chorley, sharing our 'me boxes'.

 

We have also started daily Phonics - learning letters and sounds.  This week we have learnt two new sounds 's' and 'a'.  We use the Jolly Phonics actions - ask your child and they will show you the action and tell you the sounds that these letters make.  Can you spot any of these letters at home?  Or find any objects beginning with these sounds.  We also learn how to write these letters in the cursive script.  

 

A very warm welcome to all our new children and families!  It was lovely to come and visit you all at home and we look forward to working with you and your child over the forthcoming year.

Please check this page of the website for information and pictures of what we have been up to!  Below you will find our plan outline for the term along with our latest newsletter that you will have received by email.

Here's to a happy and exciting half-term!
