The learning of phonics is an important tool to help children to become fluent and confident readers. In school your child will be having daily phonics lessons and will be applying their phonics knowledge and skills through out the curriculum. Please find below a number of resources to help you to support your child's learning of phonics at home. Use the phonics sound mats to check that your child can recognise all the sounds, watch the online lessons to help your child practise any of the sounds they are unsure of and use the games, sound button cards and past screening check papers to help your child to segment and blend the sounds when reading. 
Please spend a bit of time every day practising phonics with your child-it really will help!

Liverpool Maths Party! | All About STEMAll About STEM
Class 2R had lots of fun today for our maths party day. We did lots of maths puzzles and activities and even created numbers with our bodies in P.E.
Thank you to all the parents for the maths themed clothes the children all looked amazing!
This week we have been looking at portraits created by famous artists. We talked about which media they used to create the portraits and talked about which was our favourite portrait giving reason why. We then had lots of fun drawing our own self-portraits.
