In phonics sessions, we have been learning the sounds /p/, /i/, /n/, and using these letters (along with /s/, /a/, /t/) to blend and segment simple CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) words. All the class have enjoyed their reading this week and have been pleased with the positive way they have approached this – we worked on pointing to each word as it is read, recognising character names in the text, looking for known letter sounds and, of course, we have encouraged plenty of talk about the story and illustrations. In mathematics, we have been looking at number formation of numbers 1 and 2 and the position of the numbers on a number line, together with lots of counting. The children have also been looking enjoying their new ‘Number and Pattern’ workbooks, using colour to make patterns.
