We have now started basic 5 of phonics and the children are very excited!

This week will be group 4. 





In Literacy, we are introducing our new story book 'Suprising Sharks'. We can not wait to learn more about sharks and begin to develop our knowledge of grammar techniques. We will also be looked at adding -ed to past tense verbs. 



How you can help at home...

  • Make sure that your child is secure in identifying and using Basics 3 sounds.
  • Encourage practise of tricky tess words for basics 2, 3 and 4 (see below). 
  • Practice polysyllabic words (eg. farmyard, carpark, bedroom)
  • Practise letter formation at home. Make sure that asenders and descenders are clear.
