Thank you for all your donations for Children in Need. We had a great day and loved showing off our spotty clothes!


You may have noticed some letter flashcards in your child's reading folder. These cards are yours to keep for the year. However, please look after them as we will need them back before the end of reception! 


Each week I will post the phonemes (sounds) we have learnt on Seesaw. You can then find the corresponding flashcard and practise these at home! Each sound has an action to help us remember and you should have a set of these too. Lots of games can be played with the flashcards and you can even begin to group the letters together to make simple words.


We will also be learning some 'high frequency words' and 'red words' each week. More information about these will follow soon.


So far in Elm Class we have learnt the sounds: 's'  'a'  't'  'p'  'i'  'n' 'm'


I will also post a video detailing the pronunciation of each sound. It is really important to say each sound correctly as this is crucial to your child being able to hear sounds and blend them together to make words. 


In the meantime if you have any questions please speak to me in the morning or email the school office and I'll get back to you!

We are still waiting for quite a few Seesaw permissions letters back. Please check your child's book bag, sign the permission slip and return as soon as possible! 


If the letter has been lost (or left on the carpet during home time!) you can print and return the letter below. 


Thank you!
