This week we have been learning all about Christingle. The children have been amazing at remembering all the parts and their meanings.

We have also been very busy practising our Christmas play. If your child had words that came home to learn – please continue to practise these at home in a nice loud clear voice.

We had lots of fun trialling a new resource to help our handwriting called ‘Pegs 2 paper’ we are hoping to purchase this so it can be a regular activity in our classroom!

FS2 RWI home learning

This week group 1 have learnt set 2 sounds ‘ow’ (as in snow), ‘oo’ (as in zoo) and ‘oo’ (as in look). Group 2 have worked on previous Set 1 sounds to ensure we are retaining taught sounds. Please ask your child what group they are in and what sounds they have done this week (you may need to look back at the sound links on previous blog posts to recap previous sounds).

Below is the link to the RWI. Phonics virtual classroom, please use the link to find the videos to support and extend learning at home.

Ruth Miskin School Portal (hopefully the link will work) if that one doesn’t work the one below will give you lots of support using your child’s Oxford Owl login.

Use the Set 1 and Set 2 tabs – by clicking on them you will then see – set 1 ‘set 1 at home’ and under set 2 ‘set 2 at home’ you will find – ‘set 2 reading at home’ and set 2 spelling at home’. For set 1 ‘set 1 word time’ is a good one too.

Many thanks, The Foundation Stage Team.
