Welcome to Yellow Class
What a term we have had! The children have all settled well into Yellow Class and the routine of school. They have made new friends, enjoyed exploring their new environment and started to learn new things.
The children have mostly enjoyed playing outside in the forest and outdoor classroom. They love to hunt for bugs under rocks and logs. We have learnt two stories, 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' and 'The Three Little Pigs.' We enjoyed retelling the bear hunt in the forest and retold the 3 little pigs using puppets and a story map.
We have started phonics and the children have been taught the following sounds: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d. Flashcards have been sent home to practice saying the sounds and putting sounds together to make words, such as: in, is, as, at, sat, sit, pin, pit, pat, map, dad, mad, tin, and.
Please see our phonics page of the website for more information and a video on how to say the phonemes. https://www.ststephensinf.org.uk/learning-1/curriculum/phonics
