Tapestry- Remember to check Tapestry regularly it is updated all of the time. Don't forget we love to see what you have been up to too :-)
The children will be taught how to recognise, read and write lots of different sounds this year. We use a Government Validated Scheme called the 'Song of Sounds'. The children love learning all of the actions and singing the song... why not ask them to sing it for you- click on the PowerPoint link for the music and pictures to help.
This year the children will be taught how to read and spell these words:
There are lots of great ways to practice reading and writing them, why not try…?
- Have a word hunt around the house
- Play word pairs or snap
- Practice writing them in sand, glitter, shaving foam
- Look for them in the environment
- Letters on milk bottle lids and putting them in order to spell
- Writing them with chalk on the pavement
- Making them with playdough

Starry Night- Autumn 2
Next Term's Learning:
In the Starry Night project, your child will explore the differences between the world at night time compared with daytime, through a range of exciting and creative activities. They will find out about nocturnal animals and how they find food when it is dark. They will find out about people who work at night and the different jobs that people do when we are asleep. They will discuss bedtime routines and the importance of a good night’s sleep. They will explore the night sky and find out about the Moon and stars.
Supporting your child at home
- Look at the night sky and see how many stars you can see each night.
- See how the Moon changes shape each night.
- Go on a short walk after dark or go into the garden. Take a torch to light the way. Discuss how things look different in the dark.
- Share and discuss the Did you know? resource.
