This week in Literacy we will be reading the Fiction text- ‘Mad about Minibeasts’ written by Giles Andreae. We will be discussing the descriptive language and rhyming words. Children will then focus on using adjectives and interesting vocabulary when writing about their own mini-beast or insect. We will also be writing recounts about our exciting trip to the park.


Puffer Fish- Phase 6- The Puffer Fish phonics group will be continuing to focus on the use of suffixes. This week we will focus on adding  ‘est’ to the end of words. We will focus on the vocabulary- biggest, smallest, funniest, cutest, tallest, quickest and brightest.

Starfish – Phase 5 - This week the children will learn the alternative pronunciation of the letter ‘o’. They will learn to read polysyllabic words using alternative pronunciations of ‘o’ such as: golden, soldier, mostly, focusing. We will also practise reading and spelling the High Frequency Words: because and who.

Jelly Fish- Phase 4 – This week we will continue to use sounds and blending to help us spell. These words follow no specific spelling pattern but the children should now be using their knowledge of Phase 2 & 3 sounds to increase their spelling accuracy. The words we are focussing on include; twin, sniff, plum, swim, brown.

Stingray – This week the Stingrays will begin learning some split digraphs such as i_e, o_e and u_e.  We will practice reading  words like, time, stone, home, rule and flute as well as learn the spellings money monkey and chimney.

This week in our Themed Learning work we will be hunting for bugs, interesting leaf shapes and other exciting things in nature on our trip to the park!
