The question for Spring 2 is... Is anyone out there? We will be looking to encourage children to check their own work for capitals, spaces and full stops.  We will also be looking at exclamation marks and question marks!  

 

On Tuesday afternoon, children will have PE and then come home in their PE kits with ther unifroms in their PE kit bag.Children are expected to come into school on Friday wearing their PE kits.  They will need to bring their PE kit bag with their unifrom inside so that they can get changed again after their lesson and before lunch.  Lunchtime can be messy! 

Phonic sounds your child should know- please check regularly and just ask if you would like to know how to better support your child at home.

Phonics

 

Phonics is of great importance in Year 1.  We build on the phase 3 and 4 sounds taught in Year R, learning phase 5 and mastering blending with fluency.  The children will be able to read both real words and made up words, adding sound buttons to identify the different sounds in the words. 

 

I can't recommend watching Mr Thorne Does Phonics on YouTube highly enough.  It will enable you to ensure your child is correctly saying the sounds as well as reinforcing their learning.  For a fun, interactive website that echoes the games played in school to make learning fun I would suggest PhonicsPlay.   Teach Your Monster To Read is another great site, as is Phonicsbloom.
