Our topic this term is  Toys and Tales. 

We will enjoy talking about favourite toys , what they are made from and how they work.

 There will be lots of stories and traditional tales with associated work and a role play area with space and resources to act out these stories.

We will enjoy outside time and PE time, hall day Wednesdays.

We are contnuing to focus on phonics to intorduce new letter sounds to help us read and write. Where a new group is introduced they will be sent home in the red phonemes book to practise at home. 

 This website that we  enjoy at school has games that practise recognising sounds and blending to read within Phase 2 and  Phase 3.

Your child may enjoy using it at home in time.

Supporting your child by looking at books, sharing stories and talking about picture books at home will really help your child in their first steps in learning to read.
