This week in phonics we have been learning the digraphs ch, sh, th and ee. We know that when these letters are together they make a new sound. We have been good ‘digraph spotters’ and have been finding these graphemes hiding in words and sentences. Can you find any of these digraphs hiding in the books you read or can you hear them in the words you are writing?

Emergency Services Museum

Wow what an amazing trip the children loved every second!   From start to finish the children made us all so proud with their behaviour and enthusiasm.   They loved exploring the old police cells (ask them how they smelled!)  and all the different emergency vehicles from old to new.  They even got to explore some emergency scenes, try on some clothes and see a miniature emergency service set using working train play sets.  Finally a HUGE thank you to the parents that come along to support the children, you were all amazing!

Exciting new reading challenge!

Classes 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 are beginning an exciting new reading challenge competition!

Starting tomorrow, Friday the 10th of January, everytime your child brings their reading pack into school to be changed they will receive a raffle ticket. Once every 4 weeks a lucky winner from each class will win a SUPER READER HAMPER full of prizes. The more your child reads at home, the more chances they will have of winning the monthly prize!

So come on! Get out those reading packs and get reading!!!
