Phonics Evening

Thank you to all the parents who attended our Phonics Evening, we hope you found it useful and you have an understanding how we teach phonics in school. If you couldn't make the evening or would like a recap the presentations are below.

Project for terms 1 and 2

E is for Explorers.


We have had a delivery from Farm Link!

The incubator is in Saturn class, we are all very excited to see them hatch in 21 days time...fingers crossed they all hatch!

On Monday 22nd October we were lucky to have Lizy from Bristol Zoo come and visit us.  She shared some very interesting facts with us and brought some unusual artefacts for us to explore.  We saw a turtle shell, A springbok skin and some coral. 


After half term we will be thinking a bit more about the continents and we have asked the children to research different continents during the half term break to share with their class in the second week back. 


We will also be starting to practise out Nativity play, Year 1 parents please look in your child's book bag as most of them have some words to learn.

This week we have been introducing our story Under the Bed.  We have been discussing what we liked and didn't like about the story and what puzzled us. We have been retelling the story using pictures and props and have been talking about and describing the characters in the story and making them in our play. We have been using our phonic sounds to create words and comparing numbers.

We have been investigating what happens outside in Autumn.  We have been on a nature walk and have been discussing, describing and writing about what we discovered.  We made animal collages with the things that we found on our walk.

On Friday 28th September we were lucky to have a visit from Grace and Mac from Puxton Park. They brought with them four of their amazing animals.

First we met Charlie the Madagascan Hissing Cockroach. We learnt the he likes to eat rotting fruit and that he can’t fly like other cockroaches. He pretends to be a snake by hissing to scare away his predators. Next we met Carol the Chicken, she sat on Mac’s hand and was very tame. We learnt that chickens eat worms and slugs and that they can’t fly as their wings are too small.
The Next animal that we met was Choc-o-latte the guinea pig. We learnt that guinea pigs like to eat salad leaves and hay, and that some of the children have pet guinea pigs at home.

Finally we met Hamish the Belgium Hare, he was black and tan and had long ears, long body and long powerful legs to help him run fast.

We learnt so much Thank you Puxton Park.
