In Literacy this term we will be using and applying our phase 2 and 3 letters and sounds to blend to read and segment to spell simple words and sentences. They will be consolidating all their phonic knowledge when writing sentences, reading them and checking for success using the Marking Gnome. The children will be taught a new set of sight words to help them improve the fluency of their reading. We will continue to learn to practise writing the families of letters using our curly cursive writing. In guided reading we will continue using Vipers (Vocabulary, Infer, Predict, Explain, Retrieve and Sequence) to help us understand and enjoy stories such as 'Sharing a Shell', 'The Singing Mermaid', 'Secrets of the Seashore', 'The Bad-Tempered Ladybird', 'What the Ladybird Heard' and 'The Tiny Seed'.
