Year 1 Parents Phonic Screening Workshop
Thank- you to those of you who attended the Workshop, I hope you found the information helpful. Since the workshop we have noticed a marked improvement with the children's confidence when reading and sounding out the regular and alien words.
We now have a weekly fun spelling quiz, the children all do well and again I can notice an improvement so thank you for your help at home, it really makes a difference!
The Creative Learning Journey and the Learning Logs are inspiring the children; they were so engaged and interested when we were learning about the Giants Causeway in Ulster . I really enjoyed reading their description of the Irish Giant Finn Mac Cool and their interpretations of the story. They are now using punctuation ; capital letters to begin their sentence and full stops to end the sentence and adjectives to describe what they are writing about!
We will continue to learn about the Amazing Places and Spaces in the UK and will now move on to research Facts about the Jurassic Coast and Stonehenge.
Dear Parents & Carers
