We shall be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday and will be learning about stories all week.
Letters and Sounds/Phonics
We will be learning our new letter sound ‘a’ today.
Can you gather any items that begin with the ‘a’ sound?
Practise writing the letter sound 'a' by mark making in sugar (Or similar), forming the letter by using objects such as Cheerios, then using chalks or a pencil to write.

Keep practising saying and writing the letter sounds with your child when they are ready. Some children have started practising them in Nursery - m, a, s, d, t, p, o, w, c, f
Scroll down to the Pure Letter Sounds on the class page to hear the correct pronunciation.
Scroll down to the links on the class page for lower and upper case letter formations.
All children can practise writing their name using their name card.
Start on the 'red dot' encouraging your child to say the letter sound as they write over the letter. Ask your child to copy the letter underneath, in the space provided on their name card, encourage them to use the correct letter formation. Focus on your child writing their first name before moving on to their surname.
Scroll down the class page for more support regarding writing and mark making.
