This half term we will be focusing on Phonics. The children will be learning the sounds that different letter shapes make and how to use these to read words. The children are learning how to blend the sounds together to hear words orally and then read simple words by themselves. The children are also being introduce to ‘tricky’ words which are those words that cannot be read by sounding out the letters, e.g. ‘no’, ‘to’ and ‘the’.
The stories we will focus on link to our topic this term include Mr Gumpy’s outing, The Train Ride and Stop the car!
