Class One

French Planning Class 1 (Y1 + 2)

Spring term 1  -  Woodland Animals -  with stories and song we will meet some new Woodland animals, including the Grufallo! We will continue to work on colours and body parts. 

Spring term 2 – People who help us 

 All years will have the opportunity to do some special day/festival topics over the term with the children (eg. Children’s Mental Health Week). These fun lessons allow us to consolidate vocabulary learnt over the term and find out about different customs in French speaking countries.

Learning to read and write

Your child will receive daily phonics session following the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised Scheme.  This is a consistent and highly effective approach to teaching phonics with classroom resources and a diverse range of decodable phonics books.

The scheme was developed in collaboration with two English Hubs, Wandle Learning Trust and Little Sutton Primary School and is DfE validated and used in more than 4000 schools!

All books are matched perfectly to the Little Wandle progression and support all the Letters and Sounds phases.

Your child will discover an exciting mix of stories and non-fiction, with blending practice and stretch and challenge books.

There are practical, hands-on resources to support the phonics teaching, including grapheme cards, charts and mats, wall friezes, word cards and tricky word cards. Plus, there are also resources for Rapid catch-up and SEND support.

The school offers teacher led phonics and reading and writing workshops for parents to ensure continuity between home and school learning.  The most recent workshops were very well attended.
