Our new Key Text will be 'Jabari Tries'. This book is about a boy named Jabari and he wants to make a flying machine but it keeps going wrong. It teaches the children about being creative but when things to wrong that it is good for someone to help us and to keep on trying.

  • Thought bubbles
  • Instruction writing
  • Writing about our own designs
  • Learning about and using onomatopoeia
  • Poetry

 

Phonics

We are currently learning our Phase 3 sounds, by February Half Term we would have learnt all of the Phase 2 and Phase 3 sounds. After half term we will be focusing on using these sounds in writing and segmenting and blending longer words. 

 

Below you will find a copy of all of the sounds in Phase 3. 

 

                       

 

Tricky words

We have learnt a number of Tricky Words in our Phonics sessions, these are words that cannot not be sounded out and the children have to recognise them by sight. Could you please practise these at home with your child.
