Welcome to Gnome Class!
Our next topic is...
Will you read me a story?
We hope you have all had a refreshing half term and you're excited to dive into our new topic!
Our topic this half term is called 'Will you read me a story?' Throughout the topic, we will be reading a range of familiar children's books and traditional tales and discussing the main features of stories, such as the characters, settings, problems and solutions.
Reading is so important to a child's learning, especially during the first few years of their school life. Did you know...
How amazing is that?! We will have plenty of activities in place for you to take part in at home to help you get involved with your child's learning journey.
In Phonics, we are continuing to learn our Phase 2 letters and sounds. Phonics key rings will be sent home this half term with the sounds on that we have already covered in class. The keyrings will be updated regularly with the new sounds as and when we learn them, so please put them back into book bags each time you use them.
During writing activities, we are encouraging children to write down the graphemes that they now know from Phonics. We are starting to see huge amounts of progress since when the children first started!
