In our daily phonics lessons we are learning phase five graphemes including split digraphs. Can your child tell you what sounds these pairs of letters make and spot them in sentences when you read together?
Follow the link below for the 'Phonics Play' website, where your child can enjoy games that develop their phonics skills.
This term will see Sapphire class looking at Maurice Sendak's 1963 classic, 'Where the Wild Things Are'. We will take inspiration from the story to create our very own Wild Things which we will be including in our creative writing.
We will also continue in our study of traditional tales; analysing their structure and exploring the art of storytelling to retell stories.
Why not have a go at using the story map below to retell the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk...
