Bug Club and Phonics

In the front of your child’s reading record you will find their log in details for Bug Club. This is an online reading resource that can be used on computers and tablets.

At Edmund Waller we follow the Letters and Sounds phonics programme.  If you want to find out more information about how phonics is taught at school then please follow some of the links below and we have included some websites with fun games and resources.

The sounds the children have learned this half term are:

s  a  t  p  i  n  m  d  g  o  c  k  e  u  r  h  b  f  l  and the double letters ff and ll (where they make one sound e.g. in bell or scuff

 

We have also been learning the following key words:

is, it, in, at, and, to, the, no, go, I

 

Practising recognising these words and sounds with children in books and their environment, will really help to develop their reading and writing skills.

Making Biscuits

The children have been learning all about families and celebrations using a variety of different texts. One of our favourite stories is So Much where a family organise a surprise party for Dad.

We decided to have our own party and thought it would be a great idea to make some biscuits. The children worked together to write the ingredients and followed the recipe.

The children then chose how they wanted to decorate their creations.

The end result were some beautifully decorated and yummy biscuits.
