Lunchtime Scooting

Welcome back to school. We hope that you all had an enjoyable holiday.

In Literacy this week, our work has been based on “The King of Tiny Things” by the creators of “The Bog Baby”.

The children have explored their feelings about the dark. They have also used interesting descriptive vocabulary in their writing. We have written a “Mini Beast Code”, recording ways in which we can protect mini beasts and their habitats.

In Mathematics, the children have been using clocks to recognise and make “o’clock, half past, quarter past, quarter to”. Please encourage your child to recognise these times when you are at home or out and about.

Phonics Homework:
* Please help your child to use the phonics resources that we have sent home this week. (See Homework Books and Sound Mats.)
* Regular rehearsal, a few minutes every day, will help your child to consolidate their phonics skills, before the Year 1 Phonics Screening Check, which will take place during the week beginning Monday 16th June.
