Wellbeing

Our focus this term is 'giving and kindness' and children will be completing activities around these themes including defining what kindness is, how kindness effects others and how kindness effects yourself.

Phonics

In phonics children will be working on learning their new sounds daily. Children will learn how to blend for reading and segment for spelling. Children's phonic knowledge will be matched to the appropriate Dandelion reading book and children will be reading regularly in class. Reading is really important to us and the children have been reading lots of books in class. They are working hard to earn points for our 'Mad Hatter's' home reading reward scheme so don't forget to sign your child's reading record when you read with your child. Please read with your children as often as you can manage, it really makes a huge difference to your child's progress.
