We will be welcoming the children back and talking about what they would like to be able to improve at, learn or do better both at home and at school. We will be linking this to New Years resolutions and promises. We will also be carrying out some assessments to check what the children have retained over the holiday.
We will revisit all the sounds (graphemes)learn so far: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, h, b. f, ff, l, ll ss, j,v, w, x,y, z, zz, qu, sh, ch and th.
This week the children have used their phonic knowledge to complete some Christmas phonic games, selecting the correct phonemes, and spelling some simple items correctly. Some CVC words contained digraphs.
They have learnt tricky words I, to, no, go, the, into.
We have begun to learn: he, she, we, me, be, was, my, you, they, here, all, are.
They have enjoyed learning the Tricky Word song for these on You Tube. We have also used flash cards to encourage them to read these words by sight quickly.
They have been using sound buttons to write words containing some of these sounds.
Book bags will be collected in on Monday 14th December and kept in school until after Christmas
Uniform: Can we please remind you that it is winter uniform now and all children should be wearing a tie. Thank you
