Wallaby Class and Caterpillar Class
It's Wonderful Wednesday!!!!
1 more day!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to see you all tomorrow.
Thanks for all your lovely photos and messages about learning on tapestry. Please keep them coming.
Please scroll all the way down to see extra learning activities added this week.
This term we have been exploring the book, 'Naughty Bus'.
If you click here, it will take you to a PDF of the story to explore with your child.
Here is also an online link to the reading of the story. Please monitor your child while looking at this story as the story originates from Youtube.
*What part do you notice is different in the video story?
*Where else could the bus go?
*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
.....so 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 :) :) :)

Here are some other online books to explore linked to our Term 2 topic. Enjoy as many books to read as you can!
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.
The following website is good for helping us practice our blending for reading and our rhyming skills.

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.
We can't wait to see you all again and see all your amazing learning!
