Phonics- This week, we are revisiting the Phase 3 sounds x, z/zz and qu.  We will be introducing these through Jolly Phonics actions and songs and our new friend Geraldine the Giraffe. We will also be practising spelling all the Phase 3 tricky words we have learnt last half term and learning some new sight words.

Topic- This half term’s topic will be ‘Around the World’. This week we will focus on the United Kingdom and London.

Look at what we have achieved last week…

In P.E, we are have been practising our ball skills. We used different parts of our feet to move the ball around the playground. We then had a go at scoring goals!

In Topic we have been learning about the United Kingdom and we ‘visited’ London! We painted pictures of the London landmarks and built our own Big Ben!

We have continued to practice our addition skills using numicon this week. We have been reading number sentences and then matching them with numicon pieces to find the answers.
