Our second focus is Design and Technology. In these lesson we will be learning about the Queen’s platinum Jubilee. We are going to plan a Jubilee party where the children will plan, prepare and create the party food.

 

Phonics

 

PHONICS

Children entering Phase Five are able to read and spell words containing adjacent consonants and some polysyllabic words. The purpose of this phase is for children to broaden their knowledge of graphemes and phonemes for use in reading and spelling. They will learn new graphemes and alternative pronunciations for these and graphemes they already know, where relevant. Some of the alternatives will already have been encountered in the high;-frequency words that have been taught. Children become quicker at recognising graphemes of more than one letter in words and at blending the phonemes they represent. When spelling words they will learn to choose the appropriate graphemes to represent phonemes and begin to build word specific knowledge of the spellings of words.

Making Tudor houses in DT

In DT we have been learning how to sew! We designed a Christmas tree decoration and then had a go at making it. We stitched around the edge of our decorations, then we added details with felt. Do you like our presents and Christmas trees?
