Reading and Phonics

The phonics screening check is taken individually by all children in Year 1 in England. It is designed to give teachers and parents information on how your child is progressing in phonics. You can help support your child by reading with them and allowing them to read their book to you. We ask that our children read to an adult daily. Please record your child’s daily reading in their reading diary so that we can see how they are getting on.

How to support your child at home.

  • Read every day with your child.
  • Read to your child to model expression.
  • Give them time to read to a pet or a sibling.
  • Read comics, menus, signs, leaflets, posters, labels in supermarkets and a variety of books.
  • Use an ipad to record your child reading, allow them to look back at it and discuss what they liked about it.
  • Eye spy with phonemes for example I spy something with the phoneme ‘a-e’   they might say snake. It has the ‘a - e’ sound in it.
  • Word hunt – post it notes around the house with words on for them to find.
  • Write on the pavement with chalk or in sand.

Term 2 Church School Value - Perserverance

Term 2 - Paws Claws and Whiskers 

Big cats, small rats, tiny fleas and buzzing bees!

This half term, we’re going to discover that animals come in all shapes and sizes! Meeting an animal expert will allow us to ask and answer questions, share information about the pets we have at home and write animal information booklets. We’ll study animal artwork, draw detailed animal pictures to capture their special features and make collages, sculptures and prints. Famous animal fables will make us laugh, and we will have fun reading them aloud. We’ll spot similarities and differences between animals, look at different habitats around the world and investigate camouflage. Designing a zoo is even on the agenda!

Term 1 - Land Ahoy

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Get ready to take to the high seas and set sail in search of treasure!

This half term, we’ll be finding out lots of information about boats and ships of all shapes and sizes. We’ll study paintings of boats and draw detailed pictures of our own and then write labels and captions about them. Our science skills will help us to understand how boats float and we’ll design and make model ships using a variety of materials. Our map reading skills will help us to identify different seas and oceans, and we’ll learn about famous sea explorers. Stories of pirates will inspire us to make pirate flags, treasure maps and write character descriptions. We’ll even find out how to talk and sing like a pirate!

Shiver me timbers; it’s going to be a good term!
