Our Christian value this term is Thankfulness. We have written our own prayer and have discussed and recorded what we are all thankful for. The link to our recorded worship assemblies is below.
PHONICS UPDATE FOR YEAR 1 PARENTS.
You may have seen that the DfE is producing a phonics scheme of work for children within Reception and Year 1. Each day has a sound focus and the video has a specific time that it goes live for, however if you are unable to watch at this time the upload will then be there for the rest of the Summer term.
The times are as follows:
10 am – Reception Summer Term Phases 3 & 4. For Reception children who can blend and read words such as ‘fish’ ‘chat’ and ‘rain’
10.30 am – Year 1 Summer Term Phase 5. For Year 1 children who can confidently blend and read words such as ‘stamp’ ‘chair’ and ‘green’.
There is also a session at 11am focusing on learning to blend phase 2 sounds for Reception and Year 1 who require extra practice sounding and reading words such as ‘tap’ ‘cap’ ‘mat’ and ‘pat’.
Please follow the link above to watch the introduction video. Please do view the handy guide to Phonics as this gives an overview to understanding phonics. This link will also take you to the lessons daily.
The letter which sits alongside this scheme will be found under our Self Isolation tab.
Please do continue to read regularly with your children – I have set new reading books for all children on Active Learn. You will find your log in in the message thread on Class Dojo. Please make sure the books set are appropriate to your child’s reading level – if you are having any issues please message me and I can reset as required.
Alongside these lessons I will also produce weekly planning which you may use instead if you wish, this will go up daily.
Please do message if you have any questions.
