Tricky Words and Sight Words Song
In Phonics, we will start to learn our first set of sounds and tricky words. The children love the ‘Tricky Word’ Song. It’s very catchy and helps us to remember all of those tricky words!
We absolutely love listening to different stories by the Author, Oliver Jeffers. This half-term, we will be exploring the book, ‘Here We Are.’ This is a wonderful story and we all have a different, favourite part that we enjoy talking about. We are mesmerised by the fantastic illustrations too! Use the link below to listen to story.

Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers
Listen to this wonderful guide to planet earth and look at the beautiful illustrations.
During our first few weeks in Africa class, we have spent time settling into our new daily routines, exploring our learning environments and developing relationships with one another and our new teachers. We have explored our school values (Respect, Perseverance, Honesty, Kindness, Independence, Politeness) through reading the books below. They have really helped us to develop a good understanding of what each of our values mean and the behaviours that we need to show all of the time for us to receive value tokens and proud stickers. They have also helped us to understand what it means to be a superstar learner and how we can achieve this in many different ways!
