In our daily phonics lessons we will soon be 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 Roald Dahl's, 'The Enormous Crocodile'. We will take inspiration from the story to help us with our own creative writing and art work.
We will also be looking at traditional tales; analysing their structure and exploring the art of storytelling to retell classic narratives.
For starters, who's up for turnip stew?
Why not use the story map below to help you 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.
