EYFS - Sycamore Class


Hello Sycamore Class parents

I can't believe we are coming to the end of our year together in Reception! Sycamore class are having a fantastic last term and are really enjoying our final class topic 'Under the Sea'. We have listened to lots of stories, learnt facts and shared what we know about animals that live under the sea. 

Thank you for all your support this year. We have absolutely loved supporting your children and watching them grow. They have been a joy to teach and we have gained lots of great memories.

Our learning this half term:
English: We have been applying our phonic knowledge to write sentences about sea creatures and characters in our stories. We will be focusing on forming our letters correctly.

Phonics: We have been learning more tricky words and recapping our phase 3 sounds. We have been focusing on reading and spelling phase 4 CVCC and CCVC words. We will continue to focus on this in the last few weeks. We will be blending sounds together to read words containing digraphs and segmenting sounds to write words. 

Maths: We have been exploring numerical patterns and teen numbers. Over the next few weeks we will be comparing numbers, creating patterns and exploring shapes.

Reading books: Please read daily and sign and/or write a comment in your child's contact diary to let us know when you have read at home. These books will be used both at school and home so remember to bring them into school every day.

Library: Please also remember library books on Thursday. We will visit the school library every Thursday. The children will borrow a book to bring home for the week. 


Thank you again. We hope you all have a lovely summer.
