Think, believe, dream, dareā€¦

Week 1 01.06 - 05.06

Welcome back, we hope that you had a restful and enjoyable break and are now ready for some more exciting learning!


This term our learning will be focused on animals. Again, most members of the team showed a real interest in animals, including insects, when we were at school. As usual, all of the rainbow challenges will be linked to a story with an animal theme, digging a little further to deepen our understanding and knowledge of animals and the world around us. The story for this week is Dear Zoo. 


As you will see, for this week phonics will be slightly different. Although I have a rough idea, I would like to reassess to ensure that the children are reading at the correct level, with the right amount of challenge. The Speed Sound Lesson will still be on YouTube as normal, however both Set 1 and Set 2 sounds will now be released at 9.30. All Speed Sound Lessons will restart and there will be new words added for reading and spelling. There will also be another video that I would like you to watch, it is called Read Red Words 1. 


We can't wait to see your learning that takes place this term, so please remember to post any photos or videos to your portfolios so that we can have a look! 

Story Time! Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell

Lift the flaps and see what the zoo has sent: the perfect pet - in the end!
