This half term, we are recapping all the sounds we have learnt this year ready for our transition to Year 1. 


As the Reception year progresses and children become more and more secure with their phonics, they will begin to read books that match their phonic ability. We used a Guided Reading carousel so that every child is heard read every day to practice their phonic and comprehension skills. Each session will start with a short phonic/word game to practice skills in isolation. The structure is as follows...


Monday- children are given a book that is matched to their phonic ability. They will use Monday to decode the text, sounding out and blending any words they may find tricky. The focus is purely on decoding.


Tuesday- once the child is familiar with the text and is starting to read it fluently, they will explore the expression and intonation used in the book. They will have a go at saying parts of the text in an angry voice or happy voice just like the characters!


Wednesday- now that the child is fully fluent with the text, they will begin to answer questions about what they have read. This will not be recorded by the child but recorded by the adult in their reading record. This book then goes home to be read to and celebrated by parents!


 Our text for this half term is 'Supertato"




This half term, we are focusing on additional and subtraction of numbers to 20.

Understanding the World

In Art, we will be learning all about Vincent Van Gough. We will look at his many art pieces and replicate them using a variety of materials.
