Conkers Class News
We are so impressed with how well the children have settled into Conker class. They have been super busy learning new skills and having lots of fun. In Literacy and phonics, we have been focusing on name writing, using a capital letter at the beginning and then lower case letters for the rest of their name. The children have been learning the read, write inc rhymes to help with letter formation e.g. around the apple down the leaf. The children are beginning to blend sounds to make words. In maths, the children have been counting above twenty and learning to recognise numerals to twenty. They have been using shapes to make pictures and patterns. The children have been bringing in photos of their families for our display, which they love looking at and talking about. We wish Conker class a lovely half term!
