    We are continuing using Little Wandle Letters and Sounds this term.

    Phonics continues to be taught daily in Beech class. This term we will be continuing with Phase 5 sounds. 

    We will continue to access e-books on the Collins site/app. The new book that the children will have been reading all week will be put into your online library on a Friday. When they read it to you, they should be reading it fluently and showcasing their skills of decoding, prosody and comprehension. 

    We will also continue to visit the library on Wednesday and bring a book to share with you and the family. This is a book that is for sharing together to encourage real pleasure for reading.
