What a wonderful week it has been learning all about space! The children have been really engaged in this topic so we have decided to continue it next week. Please remember to check the home wow and continue revising the phonics sounds and tricky words. We are almost halfway through the year now and it is so important that you are supporting your child with their home wow, reading and handwriting.

 

Thank you to all the parents who attended the phonics workshop. We have uploaded the presentation below and have given handouts to the children for those who could not attend. 

We will also be sending home a letter on Monday with your child's new phonics group. Pleas check the website every Friday to see which sounds your child has been learning that week.

 

Next week is World Book Week and the children are very excited to be celebrating it! On Thursday the children have the opportunity to dress up as their favourite book character. We can't wait to see who/what they come as! 

 

Please see this week's homework below. 

The new phonics sounds this week are highlighted in red. Please see the groups below.

Reading Folders

Please note your child's reading folder should ONLY be brought back into school on their designated reading day. Please could we ask for you to also leave a comment in their yellow reading records so we know how they got on with the book at home.

 

 

 

We have also loved seeing and reading about some of the lovely things you have been doing at home via Early Essence. Some of you have started to share videos and photos of walks, doing counting and even reading! Please do continue to share any videos or photos of your child's learning/development with us, thank you!

 

Please ensure payments for our Zodiac Dance workshop are paid as soon as possible.

 

Bug Club/Reading

We have started weekly reading with the children. Once a week we will listen to your child read and send home two books (one which is a scheme book and one that they have chosen themselves). Please discuss the pictures and listen to your child read. Encourage sounding out each phoneme and then blending them together. Please record any comments you have in the yellow reading record provided. We have attached a timetable below to inform you of when your child will read with us. Please ensure their book folder (two books and yellow reading record) is in on their day.
