We will also be taking a short visit to Zero pond to see why Nina Nine is building a recycling plant. We will be think of ways that we can help to look after the environment.
In writing this week we we will writing about going to a swimming pool. We will be thinking about which sounds we need in our words by pinching the sounds as we segment them. We will make sure that we finger space between our words and a full stop at the end of our sentence.
We will continue to review and learn new sounds in phonics and practice blending them in words as well as trying to use them in our writing.
