My brilliant Year 1’s…

Emily- Rai, Ellie, Ryan and Ruby all have dedicated their choosing time and time at home to write their own version of ‘The Tadpole’s Promis’ by Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross. They have blown me away with how hard they have worked and I’ve loved that they love the book as much as I do! If any of you out there haven’t read it – do! It’s brilliant with one crazy twist!

Phonics Sound Mats

To help you support your child in their phonics learning, here are the Phase 3 and Phase 5 sounds. By knowing these sounds, your child will feel more confident in tackling reading the real and pseudo words.

If your child can read words which include these sounds, please write them down in your child’s reading journal so they can be awarded extra house points!

Ava’s Award-Winning Dragon!

Well done Ava!

Ava’s amazing design has been selected as a winner from lots of entries from all over Doncaster, in the Doncaster Book Award ‘Design-a-Dragon’ Competition. Ava put lots of effort into her Dragoon design at book club and at home and her design has been chosen as a winner by the Book Award Committee! Ava has now been invited to a ceramic arts day with a professional artist during half term, where she will be able to bring her design to life and make her dragon design out of clay!

Ava and her winning dragon!

Congratulations Ava – I’m sure you’re going to have an amazing time!

 

A wonderful week…

This week in Class 6, we have been reading the story ‘Beegu’ and spent lots of time comprehending and inferring the text. Today, we got to read the complete story and create some Talk4Writing symbols in collaborative groups. The children thoroughly loved the book and worked brilliantly sharing beautifully together.

The children in my phonics group have been working so hard this week on reading and writing words with the zz, ch, qu and ur digraph. They have particularly loved hunting outside for words, finger writing with paint and even writing on the carpet in chalk. Keep up the hard work! 🙂
