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

Hot dogs, popcorn and film night

Sunset club staff and children enjoyed ‘film night’ to celebrate the end of the half term. Great fun was had by all!



Literacy Labs

This week in Literacy Labs we have been making containers to transport our dragon. The children had art straws and lots of problems to solve. I was super impressed by the ideas that they planned and then transferred into their models!!

Well done guys 😊

This week in phonics our sounds have been ure, air and oo (the short sound like in book or cook)

We found these quite tricky, especially ure. Something that might help is talking through some words where the spelling is the same for ure but it sounds different.

eg Pleasure, treasure, pure, cure, insure.

Can you think of any more?

Could you write them out and then highlight the sound?

Thanks for your continued support.



The children in Class 6 showed some fabulous teamwork today when they were making their catapults to capture a dragon 🐉 They had to work together to make their catapults, and to test them out-I look forward to reading all of your instructions that you will write tomorrow!!

Well done!

Teamwork makes the dream work!! 😊
