Tuesday 9th June

Good morning everyone! Hope you are all well!

 

Due to the re-introduction of some year groups and the majority of teaching staff being involved with these bubbles, we are changing the home learning routine.  Work will now be posted on a FRIDAY for the following week.  

A Monday message will be posted and a Friday message too

I will also now put the Additional and suggested activities on the day page. 

Please keep posting work, photos and videos on Tapestry and we will keep replying and commenting. Thank you for your support and understanding.

 

Just a reminder that I would like to post a photo gallery  on our class page that shows the children's family connections in different countries around the world and the British Isles.

So please could you send  in your family photos to our class email address by Friday 12th June. This will be a a good way for the children to see how we are all connected around the world and to start looking at world maps.

Challenge of the day!

Where on earth would you like to live and why?

 

Daily Phonics lesson:
It is great that you are keeping going with the Daily Phonics lesson. It is so important that you don't forget the 45 phonemes that you have learnt and that you remember all the Phase 2, 3 and 5 Tricky Words. 

Please remember that if you feel that your child needs more practise at Phase 3/4 please revisit our previous lessons and also use your child's Home Learning Book to consolidate prior learning. I am glad to hear that some parents are consolidating Phase 3 and 4 phonics.

 

We have looked at the first set of Phase 5 phonics and for the rest of this term we will now be consolidating Phase 3/4/5 learning ready for Year 1.
