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 the work of John Burningham, with a focus on some of his most loved books including The Magic Bed, Mr Gumpy's Outing and Would You Rather? 

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 The Three Billy Goats Gruff...

P.E. lessons are every Wednesday and Friday. Please keep kits at school at all times. P.E. kits must include a white t-shirt, black trousers/shorts and suitable trainers.

Homework is sent home every Friday and must be completed within 1 week.

Reading books are changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please try to read with your child for at least 10 minutes each day. Reading records and books should be brought to school every day.
