Welcome to Year R
Learning Through Play Every Day!
What a fantastic first half term! We have all been very busy learning. Watch out for those letter sounds in the half term and see if you can spot any numbers as you are out and about. Why don't you have a go at ordering your numbers from 1-10 and if that's too easy...keep going! You can also use your 'Getting Ready to Write' booklet and 'Getting Ready for Numbers' booklet for lots of playful ideas over the half term - check out the homework tab above for these. Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday 31st October.

Here are just a few comments from the feedback today:
It’s a fantastic way to learn their letters. Great stuff! Wish school had been this fun when I went!
Lovely insight into learning phonics. They all love to learn!
It was a fantastic seeing the children learn. It was a great experience and I have learnt too!
Great teaching – was great to see them enjoying the letters. One very proud mum!
Letter sounds we have covered so far...

Can you find anything at home that starts with these sounds?
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.'
This 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!
