Sounds, Spellings and Timestables
Every Monday your child/children will be given either sounds or spellings in their red book to take home and learn for our sound/spelling test on Friday.
Towards the end of the year the children will start to be given times tables.
Please see a list of the this term’s spelling list:
- Autumn 1
Below is a list of words that children find tricky in phonics:
In the first week of school we have learnt information about the current Royal Family. We have learnt about Queen Elizabeth II and wrote a fact file about her. We have found out facts about Prince Charles and designed our own coat of arms. Our favourite activity was re-enacting the Royal Wedding!
In Autumn our topic is called ‘The Place Where I Live’ and in this topic we will be exploring where in the world we live and what features our place has.
