Welcome to the second part of Autumn term!
We will continue to be learning through play in the areas of provision. When we are playing with the children we will follow their interests and teach objectives through topics that excite and motivate them. In Phonics time we will work on oral blending (pushing sounds together to say the word, to help with reading) and oral segmenting (chopping up words into individual sounds, to help with spelling). We will start to learn some of the sounds (phonemes) that letters (graphemes) make and we will learn some words that cannot be sounded out and that need to be learnt by sight. These are the ‘tricky words’.
In Maths time we will work on:
The children will have P.E once a week.
This will be on a Tuesday. Please can you ensure that children come into school wearing, tracksuit bottoms/ leggings, jumper and trainers as we will be doing PE indoor and outdoors each week.
In Learning Journey time we will be looking at many books.
Your child will get their phonics homework sent home twice a week (Tuesdays and Fridays) and will get maths homework every Friday. Please remember to bring homework back on Monday’s and Thursday’s.
Your child will be sent home a reading book next week. Children will bring home a reading book with a coloured sticker on it, that is for them to read or discuss with you at home. This book might not have words in but your child can tell you the story and you can ask them lots of questions about the story. Your child will also come home with a library book. This is a book for you to read to them and for you to enjoy together. Please ensure your child brings their reading book and reading record to school everyday. It will be changed once a week.
