A huge welcome to our newest members of our Leesland Family. We are really looking forward to all getting back together again. We have so much planned, there will be lots of stories, playing, laughing and learning together. Please check this page to see updates of what we have been doing as well as on your tapestry. We well also add support for learning ideas at home here too.
Autumn Term Half Term's Topic:
Fantasy and Fairy Tales
This half term we will be using Phase 1 from Letters and Sounds. We will be learning to discriminate sounds in the environment and using our bodies and instruments. This will help us to hear t he different sounds in words.
This half term we will start learning to read some Wonder Words. They will come home in sets of 10. The first 100 are grouped into 'anchors'. You will be able to use your sounds to read them as we start learning the letter sounds. Some words though don't like to follow the rules.
These we call red tricky words. They try to trick you because you can't sound them out! These you have to learn by 'sight'.
Good luck, your teacher will stamp each anchor as you learn them.
This half term in maths we are focusing on:
*numbers to 10
Ask your child's teacher for ideas to support this at home.
