The phonics screening is fast approaching and we have been really busy in class reviewing all of our diagraphs and trigraphs from each phase. You can help your child by going over their sounds with them, and making sure your child is able to recognise the sounds when sounding out or writing down words. It is of vital importance that you go over your child’s phonics with them every night as it will really help them in class and during the screening.
For more information please refer to this video:

Please continue reinforcing doubles and near doubles to 10, number bonds and counting on and backwards in 2s, 5s and 10s with your child.

For Science we have been investigating different plants and trees. We have planted some beans and are impatiently waiting for them to grow! Next term we will be investigating minibeasts that can be found in our surroundings.
