Phonics: How we teach pure sounds at school

Year 1 phonics overview
















This term we are learning about...

What would the intrepid explorer find exciting about our town?


Someone's camping in our classroom, but who is it? Why are they here? To start our topic, we are going to teach our mysterious explorer all about our local area, teaching him about post codes, maps and what's special about our town. 





We have also begun to use tools in our forest school area...




Our new forest school area has been so much fun and has given us the opportunity to explore how wildlife camouflages into it's surroundings. We've found lots of things, from long millipedes, to huge, slimy slugs! Recently, we have learnt how to use tools, such as hand drills and saws. We have made Christmas tree decorations, dens and even hanging trees!






We had the opportunity to perform...

Before Christmas we were able to practice and perform a nativity play with a twist. Aliens crashed on earth! We used our knowledge of the nativity to teach the Aliens all about Christmas and had so much fun doing so.
