Letters and Sounds

Letters and Sounds phase 6

With Mr Barwise, the children have been learning about the 'o' phoneme after a letter w and how often it's spelt with an 'a':Image



Children with Mrs Reckless have been starting to practise some dictionary skills.  Here are a few fun games to try:






Phase 2 with Mrs Evans

Practising blending for reading.

Here are some suggested words to use: mop,cat,man,sat,tap

We display the word with sound buttons underneath then they sound talk the word. Remember to do this when reading your reading book too. Keep working hard! 

Phase 6 - f or fe to ves


In Letters and Sounds we have been investigating what happens to single nouns when they end in an 'f' or 'fe' and we want to turn them into plural nouns.

Have a look at this powerpoint and talk about it at home with a grown up:

Phonics in Class R

Class R have been working very hard in their Letters and Sounds lessons. We've been practising our blending of CVC words and remembering our tricky words. To help us with our writing we have been improving our fine motor skills through Dough Disco.

Money, money, money!


This week in our Maths lessons, we have been working hard on counting the value of a different amount of coins.

We have been looking at amounts up to 20p, 50p and £1.00 and £2.00.  We have been counting in 10 pences, 2 pences and 5 pences.


Here is a link to the slides we have been using to help to practise these skills:

Good luck and happy counting!

Phase 6 Letters & Sounds

We have been revisiting how to make singular words into plurals.

Great spelling children!  Have a go at the game at home - how did you do?




Letters and Sounds with Miss Tulley and Mrs Evans

In our letters and sounds we have been learning to read and recognise the phase 2 tricky words. These are words which cannot be sounded out, we have to learn them by sight and memory. You can practise these at home by looking for them in your reading books. 


Letters and Sounds with Mrs Rodgers and Mrs Boole

Since half term we have been working hard to read words with alternative pronounciations:

i - milk / behind, o - spot / don't, g - gap / magic, c - cat / ice, u - plug / unit, ow - cow / snow, ie - pie / belief, ea - meat / head, er - farmer / fern

We have been learning to read these tricky words: water, where, who, again, thought, through, work, mouse.

We have been learning to spell: little, one, do, when, what, out.

Well done everyone!

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.
