This week we have been working with the children and assessing their early phonics skills in preparation for their move to Reception. We have been using an activity from ‘Letters and Sounds’ where ‘Metal Mike’ the robot talks in sounds for the children to blend together, identify the word and find the matching picture. Some of the children have even had a turn at talking in sounds like ‘Metal Mike’!
Please look out for a home learning challenge that we will be sending out next week which will enable you to support your children at home with their early phonics skills. Thank you for your continued support.
As part of our Northumberland celebration week we have decided to theme this term’s curriculum day around ‘Northumberland’.’
We are planning to make flags and bunting to decorate the school and explore and create castles like the magnificent ones we have in Northumberland.
The curriculum day will be held on Thursday 25th May 2017 (the day before we break up for half term).
Seahorses and a.m. Pebbles – 10.00a.m.-11.30a.m.
Starfish and p.m. Pebbles – 1.45p.m.-3.15p.m.
We look forward to seeing you and joining in the celebration.
