From now until we break up for Christmas, we won't be learning any new graphemes or phonemes (letters or sounds) in phonics, instead we will be focusing on consolidating learning from the last few months. It is important that your child is able to spot digraphs and split vowel digraphs independently in order to become a confident reader. With this in mind, please find below documents with learning from the last few weeks that you might wish to recap with your child.
Below are the spellings which will be tested on Wednesday 21st December. They are words that contain either the digraph 'oy' or 'ay', which are both digraphs that we have been learning this term. Your Fantastic Fox might need to take their time with these spellings, as the digraphs look quite similar.
It was so lovely to see so many of you attend our performances of 'A Snowman at Sunset' on Wednesday. The start of this week saw us doing lots of 'dress rehearsals' in the hall in preparation. The Fantastic Foxes have worked so hard to learn the words and actions and I'm so proud of them all!
The children have worked hard to complete their silhouette hot and cold pictures and also we are well underway in creating our poly print snowman pictures (which you will see very soon!). The Fantastic Foxes are brilliant at paying close attention to detail.
