We have learnt the letter z as code for /z/ as in zebra. We have also learnt the letter group zz as code for /zz/ as in jazz. You will find this week's core sounds worksheets on your child’s phonics folder. Please look at these with your child and practise the words on them.
Top tips for phonics:
This week we have been looking at the numbers 6, 7 and 8. We have found different ways of making these numbers and exploring different representations. This week the children have been doing lots of counting, forwards and backwards to explore these numbers and their amounts.
See linked below the numberblocks rhymes to support your children when forming these numbers correctly.
This week we have been reading The Selfish Crocodile by Faustin Charles. We have explored the idea of helping others and looking at taking care of our oral health. We have looked at dentists and the work they do to help us keep our teeth clean. We then looked at what we can do to help keep our teeth clean and healthy!
This week as part of ‘Healthy Me’ we talked about taking care of our bodies and keeping clean. We talked about ways in which the children can keep themselves clean and the children talked about washing their hands, having a bath and brushing their teeth.
This week in music the children continued our new unit of ‘Our world’. The children began the lesson by listening to ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’. They then sang and performed ‘Row, row, row’ using the glockenspiels and actions.
This week in PE we continued with our ball skills. This week the children were practising their racket and ball skills. Following on from our cricket session the children used the skills they had learnt to support them with using the rackets. The children then used their bats and rackets to aim at different targets.
Please remember to send in your library books and we will change these as a whole class on a Friday morning.
