Phonics:

Coming soon...

We have recently purchased a brand new and fun Phonics program in Key Stage 1. StoryTime Phonics is a Letters and Sounds based program that teaches phonics through real texts. We are so excited about StoryTime Phonics as it encourages children to immerse themselves in books and links with our school vision to "Create Memories, Build Futures". All of the staff have had the StoryTime Phonics training and are now preparing the resources needed to implement this new way of teaching Phonics. This will be rolled out to the children and parents in Term 3!

For more information about StoryTime Phonics, please read our poster:

Class News!

Term 4 - WELCOME TO THE CIRCUS!

    

This week we have been joining up with the Dove Class to take part in our whole school "Take one book and run with it" theme. All of our lessons have been themed around the circus!

To launch this mini topic, Mrs Hunt and Mrs Dancey gave each of us a mystery ticket as we arrived on Monday morning: 

  

As we entered the classroom the Greatest Showman soundtrack was playing and we had mindfulness clown tasks to complete! The Dove Class joined us and we were informed that our tickets would allow us to not only watch circus acts but to take part in circus skills activities too! 

 

 

 

We had so much fun! We were all very excited to see what we would be up to for the remainder of the day! 

We watched Mrs Cantwell introduce our book for the week "Leon and The Place Between": 

This was a magical moment! The story was filled with jugglers, acrobats, clowns and magic! 

Our day continued with Circus crafts and Lego STEM challenges: 

    

What a wonderful way to start our mini topic!

 

 

What Makes A Family? 

We have been singing this very catchy song all year! It is a song that we performed to the school during collective worship in Term 1 and we also performed it to our families during the family learning day in term 3!

Today the children asked if we could sing it at the end of the day to celebrate the end of term. One parent heard our beautiful singing and asked if we could share the audio and lyrics. So here is "What Makes A Family?":

Term 3 - Diving into Abstract Art!

We have been developing our use of interesting verbs and adverbs! We were given a piece of abstract art and small world characters. We had to imagine that our partner had jumped into the artwork! Next, we directed our partner around the painting using exciting verbs and adverbs. We used this activity to write instructions. Miss Floyd said that the writing that we produced was INCREDIBLE! 

    

Term 2 - A mystery parcel

Today a mystery parcel arrived in the Dove Class. When we opened the box we found Pablo the baby emperor penguin! 

  

Inside Pablo's box there were challenges for us to complete and Pablo's favourite penguin-themed books!
