Thank you to those parents who came to join in with the phonic lesson on Thursday. The children are making great progress in reading and writing. We have started teaching phonic set 2 sounds and each child has been given a sound book, we have only bought one copy per child so I will encourage the children to really look after these. Please keep this in their book bag and then the children can share their learning at home. I will date the sounds as they have been taught.
This week the children have been measuring play dough snakes with cubes and developing an understanding of length. We have also been learning about the creation story and the whole class made a group picture. The children drew their favourite part of the story and talked about how it made them feel. They also enjoyed PE and are developing they're throwing and catching skills.
Next week we have our Eden trip and thank you to those adults who volunteered. We have enough volunteers and those people have already been informed. It would be useful to have a quick chat about the trip on Wednesday after school, once I have dismissed the children.
