New Robins (September 2020)
We have been learning all about our body. Part of this is to think about how we look after ourselves. We use the NSPCC Pants to talk about keeping safe. Please have a look at the links below:

A useful website for information about supporting your child with reading at home - Booktrust.
Here is a number line. This would be useful to print off and begin to use to support 'counting on' and 'counting down'. week-1-Gingerbread-man-number-line-to-30.pdf
Below are links to some of the videos that Mrs Tyler and Mrs Fensom have been using-

Keep practising the tricky words. https://epicphonics.com/teachers/phase/2 The first set of ‘tricky words’ the children have been learning since September. By this time in the year they should know these by heart, to support their reading ( I the he she we be me to go no ).
https://epicphonics.com/teachers/show/tricky-words-song-for-phase-3 These are the tricky words we have been learning recently. ( said, was, my, you, they, are, saw [however ‘saw’ has the new ‘aw’ sound in it. So it can be sounded out). Have a look and practise these. You can use the print off sheets and make a matching game. Or write the words on paper and put them up around the house. Every time you pass them you say the word. Our new sight words are : little, like, some , come and all. Keep reading even if it is just one page a day. Enjoy sharing stories. There are some links below.
