The Alphabet

Now that we know our phonic sounds well and we are all able to read words we now need to know the names of each letter as well as the sound that it makes. 

We have been learning a fun alphabet song to help us along our way! Click on the link below to practise with us!

What have we been learning?

English

In our English lessons we have been focusing our learning around the story 'Owl Babies'. We have retold the story by acting it out and using pictures, thinking about how the owls have been feeling and writing sentences about the story. 

Maths

In Maths we have been focusing on numbers and place value. We have been looking at comparing different amounts, continuing number sequences and counting backwards.
