We will segment and blend sounds to read words, captions and sentences. We will change our voices to match the different characters.

In 'Phonics', we will be focusing on

the following sounds:

Remember, 'digraphs have 2 letters 1 sound' and 'trigraphs 3 letters 1 sound'.

ladder                            hammer                             letter  

rabbit                   bigger    

 puppet                                                                toffee

 

 

Listen carefully!

We will aim high when choosing a 'Reading Challenge' to complete!

We will be developing our 'fine motor' skills by taking part in a range of activities that are linked to our theme!

Writing Session

We will use our phonic knowledge to write words, captions and sentences that match pictures from the story!

E.g.

  • rat
  • the cat
  • The cat is wet.
  • The rat sat on his back.

We will learn about 'Chinese New Year' traditions and compare these with own experiences of 'New Year' celebrations.
