This Week’s Learning
Week commencing Monday 12th November
This week we have been learning about bonfire night and Diwali. The children have really enjoyed making fireworks and creating their own firework chalk pictures. They have also created name rockets and designed their own Diva lamps
Focus children will continue this week; we will have 6 focus children a week. Please fill in the letters and send in any photos of your child’s interests, so that we can use this to plan for their learning.
Please make sure that the books are in their school bags everyday so that we can read with them at school throughout the week as well as at home. We will give them a new book every Friday. They will also have keywords to learn by sight not by sounding out. When your child knows all the words on the card they will get new ones. Try and learn a few at a time and play games with them (finding them around the house; using magnetic letters to make the word; playing word snap).
Please bring in PE bags on Monday so that children have them for PE during the week and then they can be taken home on Friday and washed over the weekend.
This week in phonics we will be introducing the sounds z, y, qu and ch. We use Jolly phonics for the actions, songs and visuals if you would like to practice at home here is a video of how to say the sounds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-eTO8L3t40.
We hope that you have a lovely weekend!
