Term 5 whizzed by in a flash! We were very busy creating all of our pieces of art for school’s Art Exhibition and we look forward to seeing the exhibition in Term 6. We explored African art, music and stories.
We are looking forward to a seaside themed term with our books ‘Billy’s Bucket’, ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ and ‘Rainbow Fish’. We also look forward to Sports Day and dinosaur week!
We are really consolidating our phonics now we have learnt all of the sounds before Year 1 – we are practising segmenting (splitting up a word into its sounds) and blending (putting the sounds back together to say the word) and listening to what we read and write to check we are making sense!
We are doing this through lots of games – bug club is really handy for this!
As the weather becomes warmer please ensure your child has sun cream applied before they come to school. We can top this up before they go out to lunch but please be aware that the children do play in the outdoor space during the morning as well.
We will be finding out our new class teacher soon and look forward to going up to our new classroom to visit.
