On Wednesday 6th November we held a Phonics Workshop for Year 1 parents. Miss Williams talked to our parents about how Phonics works in school and how to help us at home. We then had a wonderful time making and playing a phonics game with our visitors. We even got to take them home!
Thank you to all our visitors. It was lovely to see so many of you.
The children continue to practise their phonics ready for their testing soon. They are all doing amazingly well! ?
A reminder to parents, at Bells Farm we use the Phonics Play website to practise Phonics with children – you can use some free resources or subscribe for a small fee – click here.
Today parents of Year 1 had the opportunity to attend a phonics workshop. They spent time observing Miss Williams model a phonics lesson with a group of amazing Year 2 children. After that Miss Williams spoke to them about how best to support their child in learning phonics. Then it was time for some fun and learning as the parents made and played phonics games with their own children. We would like to thank all the parents who attended today.
This week the Puffins are working extra hard to learn all their split digraphs sounds. Each day they will be learning what they are, how to recognise them and how to use them within the correct words. This is a hard concept and they are so far doing fantastically at the understanding and practical applying of the a_e and e_e. Keep up the good work Puffins!
Next week (week commencing 15th June) the children will be completing their phonics screening check. Please practise their phonics as much as possible at home this weekend to support their understanding. The children have worked really hard to learn their phonics sounds and I am very pleased with their progress. It is really important that children are in school every day next week. Let’s showcase our hard work in Puffin class.
