Here are the phonics lessons for Monday 6th July, Tuesday 7th July, Wednesday 8th July, Thursday 9th July and Friday 10th July. This week we are continuing through phase 4. There are no new sounds in phase 4 - it deepens the skills of reading and writing with the sounds that they already know. There are however new tricky words. Your child will be developing their blending and segmenting skills in phase 4 and it can be a big leap for them. As ever, little and often and is the best approach. Their skills of hearing and blending more sounds in sounds will progress with regular practise, just like any other skill.
Here is the link to the maths for this week.

It has been a great start to the year and the children are growing in independence and becoming more confident in their maths and literacy skills. We are currently working on our third literacy unit where we are learning how to write instructions using the funny book 'How to wash a woolly mammoth'. We have also been working on developing our writing stamina with lots of sentence writing in our phonics sessions.
We have spent the majority of this term's maths sessions developing our understanding of number. We have been ordering and comparing numbers and becoming more familiar with using and understanding number lines. This week we have just started our new unit on addition and subtraction by learning to understand part, part, whole diagrams.
In our phonics work we have just completed the first part of phase 5 in which we have learnt 20 new graphemes and the sounds that match them as well as some new tricky words. In the next part of the phase we will be practising these new sounds and learning about the different ways one grapheme can be pronounced for example 'c' in cat or 'c' in centipede.
More updates on our learning will be added to Seesaw along with photographs of work. Please update permissions on Arbor as soon as you can so that we know you are happy for us to post images of your child learning on Seesaw.
Welcome back and a special welcome to our new children and families. We have had a fantastic start to the year! The children have settled really well and are making lots of new friends. We will be using the SeeSaw app to share your children's activities with you in the form of photos and videos. A copy of your log in details can be found at the front of your home/school book. If you have any problems logging in, please call in to see me. Mrs Bradley.
