Phonics

In Phonics, we will be recapping the sounds and tricky words learnt so far. These are:

 s a t p i n m d g o c k ck e u r h b f ff l ll ss j v w x y qu ch sh th ng ai ee oa igh oo (as in moon and as in hook) ar or ur ow oi ear air ure er 

to    a    the    I     no    go   into    put     he   she    we  me   be   was   you   they  have  like  said   so   do 

We will be learning the tricky words, come and some.  

We will also be looking at cvcc and ccvc words. These are usually 4 letter words like stop, sink, frog. 

We will be reading short sentences using these sounds, writing simple sentences and words and thinking about words that have these sounds in them.

 

Maths

In Maths, we will be looking at doubling. We will introduce as 'twice as many' and the children will have opportunities to demonstrate their understanding using a variety of manipulatives, such as numicon, cubes and counters. 

                                                                                                            

                                                           

 Wider Curriculum

We will be continuing to develop our writing during our own learning time, attempting to write simple sentences using our sounds and words that we have learnt so far.

We will be continuing our learning in RE about Jesus and how he was a good friend to everyone. We have learnt that his followers were called disciples which is the same word as one of our school houses. This week we will be learning about the parable of 'The Lost Sheep'. 

Why is my child coming home from school so dirty and messy?
