We will carry on with daily phonics to support our reading and writing using the Bug Club scheme. If you haven't logged on to Bug club for a while the phonic games are an excellent way to help secure the learning done in class and prepare your child for the National Year One phonic test in June.

During the Summer term we will continue to work on constructing sentences with capital letters, full stops, exclamation marks, question marks and spaces, and using conjunctions like 'and' or 'but' to join two sentences together. We will look to improve spelling by using the alternative sounds we have learned in phonics, as well as focusing on accurate recall of common exception (tricky) words.

We will further explore nouns, verbs and adjectives to add structure to our writing, use plurals made by adding 's' or 'es' and introduce the use of the prefix 'un-' and suffixes '_ed' '_ing' and '-er. We will also focus on improving handwriting, with the aim of writing letters of a consistent size and shape. 

Please continue to support reading at home as much as possible, both with hearing your child read the books they bring home, and the reading and phonic activities on Bug Club. As your child's books increase in length so should your reading sessions. Rainbow Readers certificates will continue, so please sign to let us know they have read, aiming for FIVE times a week to increase fluency and comprehension skills. Being able to discuss characters, and make predictions and inferences becomes increasingly important as books become more detailed.Premium Vector | Books set love reading concept circle with flying books  opened closed stack vector

Please remember to label all of your child's belongings. It makes it much easier to return them to you if they are misplaced as many of their bottles/jumpers/coats/P.E kits etc look the same. As the weather gets warmer and the children take off their jumpers our lost property increases day by day! Please avoid bringing toys and other items into school unless requested for part of a lesson.
