Phonics will be taught in PHASE groups instead of the whole class approach...the children were assessed at the end of last term and have been assigned to a group from their assessment.
Your children will receive spellings each week from their phonics group to practice. They will then be tested on these words each Friday within their phonics session.
In Literacy we will be continuing to learn about the different uses for capital letters. Such as capital letters at the beginning of our sentences, for the personal pronoun 'I', for the days of the week and for the names of people and places.
We will also be writing a letter telling another animal about all of the food that The Hungry Caterpillar ate.
At the start of each literacy lesson the spellings that we will be focusing on are the Year 1 common exception words.

In Art we have been looking at artists who have used lines and shapes within their work. We are also looking at tones and shades and how we can create them using different resources.
This week we have had a visit from the local artists Ruth and Felix Evans.
Ruth and Felix Evans came in and created a winter snowstorm with the children using lines and shapes. We also had a go at mixing colours to create darker and lighter tones.
The children really enjoyed creating their own snowstorms using winter colours, glitter, sequins and much more!
As part of our materials topic this term we have been taking part in some experiments with the FLASH BANG SCIENCE TEAM.
We have been learning about the properties of materials looking at which material took the longest to soak up water. We also looked at how kitchen roll soaked up the coloured water from one beaker and transferred it to another beaker.
The children really enjoyed taking part in these experiments. Maybe they could try some at home?
Here is the FLASH BANG SCIENCE website where there are lots of fun games and experiments that they children could have a go at with you!
The children will be given the opportunity to bring library books home from school on a Thursday. These will be changed on a two week rota. The children are given the choice to keep their books in school or at home during this time.
