When we listen to our story of the week (you can find out what it is on the planning board) we learn about the title, author and illustrator. We talk about the pictures and discover words that we might not know and find out what they mean.
This week we have been looking at the sound ‘P’. We have made books with pictures that begin with ‘P’. We have also linked this with making pancakes and potions. We have been thinking of other words that begin with the ‘P’ sound.
Our book of the week this week is Lettice - The Birthday Party.
This story links in with our 'Birthday' theme for the week. The children have enjoyed finding out about birthday parties with Lettice.

In phonics we are learning to listen for words that sound the same. Today we played a rhyming game where we had to listen for the word that sounded the same.
