What another fantastic week in Year 1. The children have continued to impress their teachers.

Phonics 

We have continued to learn sounds from the initial code. This week we have focused on /w/ /j/ /z/ /ff/ (huff), /zz/ (fizz), /ss/ (miss), /ll/ (bell). Please feel free to continue to practice these sounds with your children, building words with them and then writing them into sentences. Here are some phonics sound mats you can practice at home. Please bear in mind, some sounds on Phase 3 the children have not yet learnt. Phase 2,3 sound mats
