Learning Through Play Every Day!
Thank you to all the children and adults who made Learning in Action a ‘roaring’ success! We all got creative by making our own dinosaurs and then we completed some Dino maths challenges. It was ‘roarsome’!
We had a special visitor this December!
Thank you to everyone who brought the festive cheer to our Christmas Stay and Play. I think our favourite part was the ‘festive floss’ dancing!
Thank you for everyone who made it to our first Learning in Action this September. You can find all the booklets from the
presentation here on our pages.
This half term in maths we are focusing on:
Fun with Phonics
Last half term we covered the following sounds:
- m a s d t p i n g o c k u b f e l h r v j v y w z sh th ch qu nk
This half term we are learning:
-to read simple words by blending our known letter sounds eg
man sad pop dig
- to write simple phrases using our letter sounds eg
a frog on a log
Busy Bee Time - Learning Through Play!
Getting Ready to Write
The children are practising how to hold their pencil correctly. We describe it as:
'Fred the frog, sits on the log.'
Fred is our Frog who helps us learn in phonics lessons. This phrase describes the frog legs which pinch (pincer) the pencil and the log is the middle finger which the pencil balances on. Try using this little reminder to help them at home too.
Try this little trick at home to help with pencil grip. Place a pom pom in your child's hand and get them to grip it with their two fingers - whilst holding their pencil!
