Phonics - Phase 1 

This half-term we will continue our work with rhyme, alliteration and oral blending and segmenting. To practise oral blending, an adult may say the sounds from a word, such as /c/-/u/-/p/ and see whether the children can pick out a cup from a group of objects. For segmenting practise, an adult could hold up an object such as a sock and ask the children which sounds they can hear in the word sock.



We will be focusing on learning numbers, recognising them and writing them. We will also be covering floating and sinking, weight and capacity through a range of fun and exciting activities, both indoors and outdoors.


We would love see any pictures of your child on a journey that you would like to share, please send them  to the email address below and we will print them off for children to share with their friends and then add them to our display:
