Phonics

Last term Class A completed Phase 2 of their Phonics sounds. This term we will begin to learn phase 3 sounds. We will apply our skills in reading and writing with growing independence . 

Here are some phonics games your child could play at home...

Writing

We will have lots of opportunities for writing every day in class. This will be done in play. We love to get involved in play and we will incorporate writing into your play choices. This will begin with hearing the initial sounds in words and writing these. we will then build on these skills, hearing and writing more of the sounds within words too.

Mathematics

This term we will be deepening our understanding of number. We will work on number recognition, formation and ordering numbers to 20. We will find one more and one less than numbers to 10 then 20. We will learn addition later on this term. 

We will build up our mathematic vocabulary to describe length and height.

 

Here are some games your child you play at home to support counting, number recognition and shape recognition.

British Sign Language

We are currently learning a sign a day. Children know signs for the letters of the alphabet, some food and drinks and colours. We will learn feelings, question words, places, transport and lots more! 

 

PE

Children will start PE this term! They will need to wear PE kits to school every Tuesday please. 

 

Welly Walk

Children will be exploring our natural environment every week. We go on an adventure into our forest area every Friday! Make sure your wellies are in school. 

Reading at home / home learning

Children will bring home a phonics activity each day Monday-Thursday. This will be a task that consolidates learning we have done in class.

Every Friday children will bring home a reading book which is matched to their phonics ability. They should apply their phonics to read this book to an adult.  

Thank you for your continued support!

Here we are having lots of fun learning!
