Miss Salthouse

We had a great day at Lytham Park View. We planted marigolds and learnt all about bees. We then played and explored on the park.

We have learnt to ride bikes and develop our skills over the last few weeks with Go Velo.

Reading and Phonics
It is an expectation at St Joseph’s that the children read every night at home. We also read in school with the children, at least three times a week. On the week commencing 6th June 2022, the year 1 children will be tested on their phonics skills. This is done with a familiar adult to check their recognition of sounds and their ability to read words.
We teach phonics using RWI children need to know all of set 1, 2 and 3 sounds and read them in words. 

We had a visit from father Christmas on Monday.

We worked together as team to make bridges out of just paper and cello tape.

To finish our topic about hot and cold places. We made animals out of clay and made their habitats.
