4th - 8th October

Highlights of the week:


We have been learning about the letters p and n which are code for the sound /p/ and /n/. In your child’s phonics wallet you will find the sheets that they have completed in the lessons this week.

We have then had a go at forming our letters correctly. We have been working on our pencil grip using our ‘froggy legs’ and trying to form the letters correctly using the word patters/rhymes to support us.

We have been using our skills of blending to have a go at reading words. Your child will have a ‘My words 1’ and ‘My words 2’ list in their phonics folder.

We have been practising segmenting to have a go at hearing the sounds all through the spoken words to get us reading for writing.


This week we have explored the concept of sorting. We have been sorting lots of objects by different characteristics for example, colour, size and shape. We have learnt about ‘same’ and ‘different’ and talked about similarities and differences.


In Music we listened to Sing by The Carpenters. We talked about how the music made us feel and about the things it made us think of. We enjoyed learning and performing the song ‘This old man’ and practised adding actions to help us remember the lyrics.

Home learning ideas:

  • Your child will have an additional /p/ and /n/ sheet in their phonics wallet (picture attached below). Could you talk through the sheet with your child and work through the activities?
  • Have a go at completing some of the reading bingo challenges. Make sure you share these with us on Tapestry.
  •  Can you sort some objects at home? You could sort them by shape, size or colour? Can you sort the same objects in more than one way?
  • Have a go at some letter formation using your finger and some shaving foam or flour! Send us your pictures on Tapestry.
