Year 5/6 Product Launch

Year 5 and 6 have worked incredibly hard this term learning all about the rainforests. To celebrate their learning they have produced a fantastic re-usable calendar which will be on sale for all to buy! Our calendars will be sold at our celebration event on 18th December 2018 at 5pm. Calendars will be £7.50 to buy – a real bargain!

We hope to see you there!

 

A big well done from me to the choir and all the effort they put in rehearsing for the Christmas light switch on. A lovely little video here (thank you Miss Knowles) and thank you to all of the support from parents, friends and family. Feeling very festive now!

Coffee Morning

Many thanks to  School Nurse, Pat Kemp and the Family Information Service and SaidSend for attending our coffee morning this morning.

It was the first time we have held a coffee morning in school in partnership with other services supporting families and it was well received by our parents and carers and family members who were able to attend.

We certainly hope to repeat it again in the future.

 

Phonics update

As mentioned we have started Phase 5 this half term.

The sounds that we have covered so far are ay, ou, ie, ea, oy, ir, ue, aw and wh.

We have been spelling words with these sounds in, we have been reading words containing the sound and we have been spotting and highlighting the sound also.

A great game to play with your children could be Flashlight Words.

Make some word cards with the sounds in eg play, cloud, tie.

Turn off the lights and use a flashlight or torch to flash on each word card. Children to read the word as you flash on them.

Have fun !!

Phonics – Phase 5

This week in phonics we have moved onto Phase 5.

I have added a video below which gives a really good explanation of the Phase 5 sounds, this week we have been focusing on ay, ou, ie and ea.

Could you write some words with your children that contain these sounds? Maybe your children could highlight the sound within the word. They can do these in their homework books and I will give out house points.

Thank you for your continued support

Mrs Wallace
