We have all worked hard to settle into the routine of school life and , as a part of this we have been working hard in our phonics , to form our letters and to also develop our segmenting and blending skills. Please work with your child to help them to recognise the sounds letters make and also to be able to read the words that they have had sent home , without having to segment each individual sound ( Quickfire).
Last week we worked hard , learning how to make patterns and by the end of the week we had become expert pattern makers !
During our Literacy lessons last week , the children thoroughly enjoyed talking about the right things that we should be doing with our hands and feet. We did also talk about the things we shouldn't do with our hands and feet , and the children had some good suggestions.
This week our book of the week has been Handa's Surprise. We have enjoyed taking part in lots of activities linked around this theme. We thought of different fruits we could put inside Handa's basket , tasted the different fruits. In art we also used chalks to draw the different fruits in the story.
We are looking forward next week , where we shall be thinking about our five senses and what we can do with them.
Thank you for your continued support with help your children to learn their sounds and new words.
