English - Talk for Writing
In English we are going to be looking at Percy the Park Keeper and Brown bear, What do you see?
We have now made started with stage 2 sounds in phonics.
It would be great to still practice the sounds in stage 1 to make sure we remember them.

PhonicsPlay is a great website for children to access to practice their phonic skills from home.
We aim to change your child's reading book every Tuesday and Friday. This ensures each child has the opportunity to read their book within school to an adult twice a week and with their family at home to develop their segmenting, blending and overall fluency skills.
Children may start to get new books which they will get quizzed on within school once they are ready. This shows that the children are understanding what is happening in the book as they read it.
Each child will be sent home with tricky and green word bookmarks. It would be brilliant if you could practice the tricky words and green words to support your child's fluency when reading.
Make sure to keep the bookmarks as they are a great tool to use again and again.
This term we will look at loads of different books by many different authors.
- We will talk about the different parts of the book like; the front and back cover, the spine, the title, the blurb ect.
- We will predict what might happen in the story just from looking at the front cover and from reading a few pages.
- We will use our inference skills to discuss how the characters are feeling in the stories.
- We will use out sequencing skills to put the stories in order.
- We will also discuss our likes, dislikes, patterns and puzzles about the story.
Over the next few weeks we are going to be looking at Place value.
We are lucky enough to be able to access the Numbots Game - this allows your child to work on their maths skills at home in a fun, exciting way.
Each week I will be checking who has completed the next level and handing out certificates.
You can find your numbots login in your child's reading diary - we have started from the beginning to make it exciting with the certificates.
This Term our theme is healthy body healthy mind.
This term we have been parts of the human body and our senses.
We learnt about what each part of our body is called and which sense it is related to.
We have been experimenting with use our senses in different ways. For example, using our hearing to figure out what sounds we can hear when listening to the world around us. Using our sense of smell to figure what the hidden object could be. Then taking away our sense of sight, by using blindfolds, and experiencing how to appreciate how much we use it.
We also took learning outdoors into the playground when we were in pairs to trace and label the outlines of our body.
