Phonics Stay and Play
A visit from Dside
Reception were visited by Dside this week. We learnt and talked about our feelings, what makes and keeps us healthy and safe, and how to look after ourselves and animals. We sat and listened quietly, waiting for our turn to answer lots of different questions. We knew lots of fruit and vegetables that are good for us! We then met a special, little, furry friend. He was so cute!
We love spending time with our buddies!
A fire engine came to school!
Our visit to St Matthew's Church
We thought it would be useful for you to see some examples of writing that are used throughout the country to demonstrate the required standard. We will assess the children’s ability in reaching the Early Learning Goal (2), exceeding (3), or not achieving (1). We thought these examples will help you to understand the expected levels, and of course to help your child at home. Please come and see us if you would like any advise on how to help.
The Early Learning goal :-
Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways, which match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words. They write simple sentences, which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible.
Children who can segment and blend sounds easily, are able to use this knowledge when reading and spelling. Segmenting and blending individual sounds can be difficult at the beginning. Encourage your child to sound out each word and blend those sounds together to say the word.
By the end of the year, children should be able to recognise numbers 1-20. So look out for numbers everywhere! Look at home, in books, on the telly and even in the outdoor environment.
We are really interested in hearing anything that your child does at home, which you both think is an achievement and makes you smile. Please print off the voucher from the link below, and send the wow voucher back into school so that this moment can be celebrated in class too.
Please find this half term's chilli homework challenge from the link below. Remember, we ask for at least 3 activities to be done at your own leisure, but feel free to do as many as you like! These can be sent back into school when you have finished them, where we can look at all the fab things you have been doing.
