Our RE focus has been Families and Celebrations and the children have enjoyed sharing their own experiences.

Phonics: We are now working on Phase 5 phonics. The purpose of Phase 5 is for children to broaden their knowledge of graphemes and phonemes for use in their writing and reading. In our phonics we follow the Letters and Sounds programme.

The transition from the Foundation Stage to Year 1 can be quite challenging for some children so it is our aim to ensure that children continue to enjoy learning and develop in to confident and independent learners.

 

Here are some photographs of our trip to Chester Zoo.
