This term we have started a new phonics scheme called Essential Letters and Sounds.  We want the children to practise reading their book 4 times across
the week working on these skills:

This will help them to read more fluently.

Class Countries

Every year group in our school learns about a different country. By the end of year 6, the children have complied a Passport to the World containing the learning they have done about each country.  In Reception, we will be learning about London and China. We will compare London and Beijing and look at festivals we celebrate in the UK and those which are celebrated in China.
