The Lonely Beast

In English this half term, we are reading 'The Lonely Beast' by Chris Judge. Here are some photos of the children performing freeze frames of the people and the Beast in the story. We talked about ideas and facial expressions. We recorded through thought tracking in thought bubbles around the illustrations.

Common Exception Words

As your child learns to read you might hear them talk about the 'exception words' they are learning. We explain what exception words are, what role they play in phonics learning and how you can support your child's developing reading and spelling skills at home. Exception words are words in which the English spelling code works in an unusual or uncommon way. They are not words for which phonics 'doesn't work', but they may be exceptions to spelling rules, or words which use a particular combination of letters to represent sound patterns in a rare or unique way.

Safety Day

Class two visited the local fire station. We talked about ways to keep safe in our homes. We enjoyed dressing our teachers up and trying the uniform on. The best bit was when we had a go with the hose!
