Castles

Foundation Two have been enjoying learning all about castles. We have been reading traditional tales and dressing up as kings and queens in our role play area. We have been learning about the different parts of a castle and using our phonics to label diagrams.
The children have created some wonderful art work using different techniques, including painting and box modelling.
Come into our classroom and have a look at our art gallery!

Fantastic Phonics in Foundation Two

We have been busy learning lots of phase three sounds this half term. We have been practising segmenting and blending the sounds to read the words. Children are becoming increasingly independent in Foundation, and are creating words and beginning to record simple sentences.

Reading Certificates: February 2019

Congratulations to the following children for receiving their reading certificates for reading three or more times a week this half term. The biggest gift you can give your children is to get them reading and praise them when they choose to do so without being asked. If children are motivated to do something on their own, they will do so much better in the long run. We thank you for all the help and support you give your children with Reading.

To celebrate the end of our topic, Class 2 took part in pirate day. We all dressed up like pirates, went on an exciting treasure hunt to search for our stolen treasure and made pirate puppets in the afternoon. It was a great day!
