*How else could it be saved?



Here is a link for goldilocks that you might prefer to the oak academy one. It's good to hear different versions of a traditional tale too. Enjoy!!!

Some parents have asked about that jump from individually pressing sound buttons in a word to blending. It's a big jump!!!! Why not try this ...... blend i n (in) on a piece of paper/card and then add other letter consonants we know eg p t b etc

Then blend p with in to make pin

Repeat with at children can feel more of a sense of achievement if they're not quite ready for cvc words (consonant vowel consonant).


Looking forward to hearing from you on tapestry.

Mrs Whiting, Miss Cutajar and Miss Rawlings :) :) :)

Please introduce your child to the following new sounds and practice reading them within words when they are more secure.

Explain that ss is a new digraph and makes exactly the same sound as s. It is a digraph like ck in which two letters are working together to make just one sound like in 'mess'. Please teach the children the new action which goes with each sound.

The sounds we will be learning are here.

Talk to your child about the different types of transport and focus on what is the same and different and why?

Maybe think about how each transport is adapted to it's use. eg Wheels/ no wheels , size, materials made from.

How has transport changed from old to new and why?

We know you will have some interesting discussions.
