The Department for Education is launching daily phonics lessons for children in Reception. Everyday there will be a lesson to support blending. This will be a good recap lesson for all children. There will also be daily phonics lessons where a new sound is taught.
This will be a great opportunity for your child to continue to practice their phonics. I strongly recommend that every child takes part in these lessons everyday.
The lessons will be as follows:
10 am Reception Summer term phonics
10.30 am Year 1 Phonics
11 am Learning to blend
The videos will be online via the youtube link below.
Please find this week's work below and the Monet garden competition. This is your chance to design a new garden for the playground. The deadline for entries is Friday, these can be emailed to
Please take a look at this lovely story which helps children to understand how they can play with each other without hugging.
