Weekly Information

We've been learning so much in Rabbit Class!
 
This week the children have enjoyed learning about safari animals and have looked at safari prints and enjoyed researching about different safari animals. in this last week of term we will be drawing all the different threads of learning together and will be enjoying looking at underwater animals, with a focus on different habitats. 
 
Our topic this term is called 'Amazing Animals'. Please take a look at the overview below. We will continue to send weekly phonics sheets and reading books home, please support your child in their learning and record any reading that you do at home in their Home/School reading record.
 
We wish you a very happy half term
 
Many thanks.
This week in Rabbit Class
 
Phonics
This term we will be continuing the phonics teaching. We are now teaching phase 3 of phonics which is really exciting as the children begin to apply it to their reading and writing. At the end of each week your child is coming home with a sheet to share their learning with you. It is important to practise oral blending, reading words and tricky words with your child - as well as the sounds. All of the information you need to support you in doing this is on the the little wandle website. However, please ask if you need any additional support. 
 
Writing Focus
Children will learn how to use our mark making area to draw pictures and show us what they can do in their learning journey so far. The children are practising forming their letters correctly using the Little Wandle jingles to support them.
 
Maths Focus
We will be continuing with our maths learning this week.  Please see the slides below to give you some ideas of how you can support your child at home and the sorts of things we'll be doing in school.
