We have been working incredibly hard on our phonetic sounds in Orange class. These are the building blocks for all literacy work throughout the school. Phonetics help us to spell new words by encouraging the children to read out the sounds that they can hear. We have been focussing heavily on words such as CAT and MAT this week. Orange class has also had something of a minor change with a new class layout now in place. We have introduced individual workstations for each pupil. All of our class members now know where they need to sit when they are carrying out independent work. Finally we have had great fun during our Orange class PE lessons. As well as our regular weekly swimming sessions, Orange class have been exploring an obstacle course that has been set up in the school gym.
