Making a difference

22nd April 2022

We are getting a school puppy! As we eagerly await our new furry addition, we thought it would be a great opportunity to learn about pets! We have been learning about different types of pets such as dogs, cats, hamsters, Guinea pigs, rabbits and fish and how to care for them. Choose a pet and I can tell you how to care for it!

In maths we have been recapping 2D shapes and talking about their properties. The shapes we have learnt are: circle, square, triangle, rectangle and pentagon. Perhaps this weekend you could go on a 2D shape hunt, what shapes can you find? How many sides and corners does it have?



Now we have learnt all the sounds in phase 3, we have moved onto phase 4. Phase 4 revisits and reviews all sounds taught so far as well as learning lots of new high frequency words and tricky words.

All sounds learnt:
