Routines and New Friends


This week we will still be learning new routines and getting to know our new friends! We will be thinking about where we live and who is in our family. We will also be doing lots of counting this week and placing numbers on a number line.

Phonics: Phonics sessions will start next week. We will have daily phonics lessons, introducing a new sound each day.

Phoneme– sound.


Grapheme – the sound / phoneme in its written form


Digraph – a single sound made from two letters – eg ‘ee’
