A big thank you to all who came to Foundation's garden party. We had a fabulous time in the sunshine and lots of fun! Well done to Warren the winner of the cake raffle. Thank you again for all the support from our parents and guardians.

Lion Cubs and Lion class enjoyed our visit from a scientist. A big thank you to Rafael's Mummy for spending time with us. We had lots of fun taking part in science experiments!!

A big THANK YOU to all who came to visit our Dinosaur Museum. The children have enjoyed learning about dinosaurs and showcasing their work.

 

This half term we are learning through the topic of

'Bugs, Bugs, Bugs...' 

 

Alongside this theme we will also be finding out about the season Summer. We will be supported throughout our transition to our new class!

 

Please look at our planning below to find out what we will be learning about this half term. We have lots of exciting activities planned!

This half term we will be continuing to practice our blending and segmenting skills needed for reading and writing e.g. c-a-t says cat, sh-i-p says ship, c-oa-t says coat.

We will also be securing recognition and formation of all the letters of the alphabet.

We are beginning to learn digraphs from phase 3 phonics and will continue to read and write tricky words. 

 


More information about the teaching of phonics can be found on our phonic page.
