Watch these videos alone first (keeping the sound up!) so you are familiar with the sounds and how they blend together. Then sit with your child (with the sound down!) while they decode the words to read them by blending the sounds together. This is the easiest video using only Phase 2 sounds.
The following videos increase in difficulty, working through to Phase 5 sounds. These are all the sounds your child has been learning in school and the types of words they are expected to be able to read during the screening check in June.
There is an exciting buzz in the classroom as the children are in training to become superheroes, developing their super powers and talents in a variety of ways.
In the coming weeks we shall be thinking about what we have to offer as heroes and develop skills and talents (superpowers) in the areas of art, design, PE, PSHE, SMSC and geography.
We are continuing the topic into the 2nd part of the term as there are too many exciting things to fit in to five weeks!
Please continue to support your child's learning at home and don't hesitate to pop in should you have any questions about how to further help them.
Come on everybody Let's all do the 10 dance. Grab your 10 partner and head out on the dance floor! A super fun and funky dance tune about the number combinations of 10. So do the 10 dance with 5 and 5, 6 and 4, 7 and 3, 10 and 0, and 8 and 2.
It's a numbers song for children and adults. Count from 0 to 100 and from a hundred to a trillion. This song was written and performed by A.J. Jenkins. Video by KidsTV123. Copyright 2011 A.J.Jenkins/KidsTV123: All rights reserved.

Happy New Year!
I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas break.
The children have been excited to hear of our new topic 'Dungeons and Dragons' and have contributed some fantastic ideas to the planning of activities. Once again, we are sending home a topic overview and homework choice sheet so you can be involved in your child's learning by supporting them with their topic interests at home. Last term saw some lovely work produced at home and the children are always proud to show off what they have done to their teachers and classmates.
Should you have any books, internet printouts or resources you think would support our topic, please do name them and send them in for us to share with the children.
If you are having a post-Christmas clear out, we would be very grateful of any toy castles and/or figures you no longer require to support the children's learning when they act stories out in small world play. Likewise, we would be pleased to take any costumes you have that would suit our topic for when the children perform on our lovely role-play stage.
As you were informed before Christmas, this half term will see the introduction of the new reward scheme for maths in the form of 'Treasure Targets'. There will be more details to follow but it has been positive to see and hear of many children practising their targets over the holiday in readiness for this.
Please may I remind you that toys are not to be brought to school for show and tell. We do enjoy hearing the children's news, sharing extra work they have done at home or looking at mementos and guides from places they have visited.
We have a set time each week whereby all children change their book under the guidance of an adult. The children are aware they may change their books in addition to this whenever they wish but may need a little prompting from you to remind them!
As always, please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions at any time.
Welcome back to the Christmas Countdown!
We have had a fabulous first half term together in Fir Class. The children have worked hard and are really trying to take pride in their work and presentation.
Our topic is based around the book ‘ Beware of the Storybook Wolves!’ which is a fantastic story that will then lead us into the wider world of fairy tales and traditional tales. Please see the attached topic web for the types of activities we shall be doing.
We have been developing the outside area and shared areas across Key Stage One including a new role play theatre. The children are really looking forward to helping us spend some money thanks to your generosity from the sponsored walk. Thank you.
Thank you for your continued support with your child’s home learning. Please do get in touch if you ever have any questions.
Below are some links to some of our class favourites for our counting warm ups. I'm sure you won't be able to resist humming along!
In the rush of Friday afternoon and the amount of letters, I remissed from handing out the homework. Please find the homework below.
We would like to welcome all of the children to Key Stage One at the start of this new school year!
We have already had a fantastic start to the year, with Year 2 setting a fantastic example to the new Year 1 children. We are sure that they will continue to work brilliantly together throughout the year.
We were very excited to discover a parachute on our first day back and we have already started asking lots of questions about what happened. We are sure that this will lead to a lot more exciting discoveries and new opportunities to learn new things.
Please continue to use our class pages to keep up to date with all of our goings on in Key Stage One and any homework reminders.
We are all very excited for a fantastic first half term!
