Our topic this half term is...
The Secret Life of Pets
Our Nursery children will be continuing with Phase 1 phonics. Below are the different aspects that we will be focussing on throughout the year.
Our Reception children will be recapping phase 2 phonics and starting phase 3. It is an exciting time for our little ones as they start their journey learning how to read and write. Therefore, one of our big focusses is on phonics throughout EYFS.
Below are the Phase 2 and 3 letter sounds.
Our work in computing focuses on computers in our everyday lives and how they help us learn. The children will be developing their keyboard and mouse skills using the creative educational website, Mini Mash.
P.E. will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please ensure your child is wearing their P.E. kit on those days (including navy joggers and sweatshirts when the weather is colder).
Reading - Our aim is to develop a love of reading. We encourage you to read with your child regularly - this can be both listening to them read and by having bed-time stories read to them. Reading should be a fun and enjoyable process for you and your child to develop together.
During class time, your child will experience listening to fantastic stories regulary and they will also have numerous oppotunities to read to an adult and discuss them. We have a wide range of exciting books within school to support each child's reading ability.
We aim to send two reading books home weekly dependent on each child individual needs.
Phonics - Reception children will be given a Phonics book. Inside will be all the letter sounds that your child has learned in class so far. New sounds will be added when a new letter is introduced to them. Please look though the book together to help embed their phonic knowledge. Together you could look round the house for objects that begin with a paticular letter sound. Please practice the letter sounds and tricky words with your child.
Nursery children will be given a busy book to take home. Inside will be a fun task for them to complete, related to the learning that they have done that week.
Library - We have a very exciting new micro library in school this year. Each child with have the opportunity to choose a book and take it home to read. books will be changed during library sessions.
