Letters and Sounds

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!

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.

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?
