The children have been working really hard on the first letters and sounds we have covered within our Phonics lessons.


Last week's letters were: s, a, t and p

This week's letters will be: i, n, m and d


This should help with letter formation at home and the little black books we sent home for "homework."

Any observations uploaded to Tapestry regarding activities and Learning at Home would be wonderful to see.

Thank you

“The Princess and the Pea,” Body Percussion

Still image for this video
This week, we have read the story of “The Princess and the Pea.”
In this story, a real princess arrives at the castle door during a thunderstorm.

Today we had a go at making our very own “Percussion Thunderstorm“ by using just our bodies.
We watched and listened to a choir creating the sounds of the storm and we copied them using ideas of our own too.

The children really enjoyed doing this and showed some great ways of using their bodies and voices.
Well done to you all!

We have begun learning our Letters and Sounds this week - take a look at our brilliant practical letter formation! s, a, t, p

We have all been taking part in the "Daily Mile," walking initiative. We have really enjoyed ourselves, whilst keeping fit and staying active!

We are so proud of how confidently our new Orchard children have settled in for their first two days. Well done to you all!
