Phonics: We have had some knew sounds this week!
This week: oe, wh, ph, ew
Last weeks: oy, ir, ue, aw
Week1: ea- each have a treat, ie-pie on your tie, ou- a proud cloud, ay- play all day. Please spend some time revising these and writing words with them in.
Please spend time learning HRSW off by heart. Playing ‘Snap’ or ‘Splat’ is a great way to make this more fun!
I have added a video to the website and can be found here: Phonics Reading - YouTube and Dojo giving you some ideas on how to support your child with their reading.
Maths: This week we looked grouping and organising items (like pencils in 1 pot, markers in the other pot) and toys into two groups. The children have been great at putting this skill to use during tidy up times!
Topic: This it was 'well being' week. The children attended many workshops and sporting activities. In class, we have been talking about our feelings, actions and consequences. We talked about being a good friend and asking for forgiveness also. We read lots of stories helping us to learn how to deal with our emotions.
News: Our butterflies have come out of their cocoons and we were so excited to see them fly away!
Homework: Please see last weeks home learning document and complete this if you have not done so already, otherwise please practice writing words with our new sounds in.
Enjoy your long weekend!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher. This can be done by emailing email@example.com
Each week your child will receive one reading scheme book and one sharing book. Sometimes there will be a library book your child has chosen themselves. Your child has been put into a reading group for a specific day (please see the document attached below). This is when they will read to their class teacher on a 1:1 basis and have their books changed.
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?
Please see letter attached below.
Your child may wear the summer uniform up until October half term. If the weather is hot, we ask you to provide your child with a Mount Carmel sun hat and put any sun cream on before coming to school (we do not allow sun cream to come into school).
After half term, we ask children to come to school in full winter uniform. There is more information under 'uniforms' on our webpage. Please ensure you send your child into school with a plastic water bottle (no glass ones please) filled with fresh water each day.
