Week beginning 8th October
Next week we will be doing d, g and o in phonics. We are starting to put together the sounds learnt so far into little words, such as sat, pin, Dan, pip, etc and the children are excited that they are beginning to read! Next week I will start to send home some reading books. Children can point out sounds learnt so far and maybe begin to blend words, eg, s-a-t, sat, etc. We change reading books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, usually, but will start on Wednesday next week as I am out on a course on Monday and Tuesday. Mrs Tawn, Mrs Ringham and Mrs Atkinson will be covering on those two days. In Literacy we will be reading How to Grow a Dinosaur and will be designing our own magic seed packets and writing some short words to go with them. In maths we are going to be starting to add up by counting the two groups practically. Eg, I have 3 dojos and then I'm given two more, how many do I have now? Then counting how many altogether.
Have a lovely weekend!
