Hard at work, having fun!


It was lovely to travel around school this morning to see fun learning in action in Letters and Sounds - all of the children were thinking carefully and trying so hard.  Well done children.

ay (play, say)

ou (out, about)

ea (read, meat)

ie (cried, replied)

oy (toy, annoy)

ue (blue, queue)

aw (awful, paw)

We have also been learning to read these tricky words: oh, their, people, Mr, Mrs, looked, called, asked


Phase 6 Letters & Sounds with Mrs Reckless

In Letters & Sounds this week, my group have been looking at VERBS in the past and present tense.

Past present

We have spoken about their endings and how the sound of the 'ed' can change.


Look, cover, write, check!


We have been using this interactive spelling game to help us with learning our key word spellings.

Have a try at home - which level can you get up to?


Do you like the Look, Cover, Write, Check way of learning?


Phase 6 prefixes

In Letters and Sounds, phase 6 is all about prefixes!

The children impressed me with how many 'un' words they could remember and think of. Well done children! Can you remember what 'un' and 're' do to a word?

Phase 3 Letters and Sounds with Mrs Shelton

Thank you Phase 3 for a fantastic first week!

My group have been working hard this week on the 'ch' sound and learning our tricky words.  Please use your tricky words book mark to spot these words in your reading books.

Tricky words: you, they, all, are, my, her, he, she, we, me, be, was.Over the next few weeks we will keep working on these, so we can read and spell them confidently and we will be practising the sounds 'sh', 'th' and 'ng'.  We will also be looking at the alphabet, introducing the names of the letters.

Keep up the good work Phase 3
