Reaching for the Stars!
In LH we are learners who are ready and eager for knowledge! We are learning to become independent learners who talk and engage with others to find out more, understand what we are learning, why and how to improve our work.
All of us always try our hardest to reach for the stars in everything we do!
Please take a look
around our page, meet all of us and pop in for a visit if you can!
This term we are learning about
My name is Miss Huxster and I teach LH. Feel free to look around the site and share our learning with your child.
I love working with the children and believe that every individual has the potential to achieve and succeed. Reach for the stars and never give up!
If you ever would like to come in and chat or to see the children's work, with or without your child, please come and see me to make an after school appointment for a Thursday afternoon. I will do my best to accommodate you and your child's needs.
Thank you for all of your continuing support for the children to make their learning purposeful.
See you soon! =]
Letters & Sounds - a note for parents and guardians
Letters & Sounds is a phonic programme used in school daily. It helps your child to recognise letters, their sounds and builds up various sound combinations to help decode words.
We encourage children to read at least 4 times a week at home using their phonic knowledge to build up words, which also helps with spelling.
Below are some recommended websites for your child to play games and practice their phonic recognition. This also includes 'non-words' or 'pseudo words' for your child to sound out. These will be included in the Year 1 phonics screening check, a new government reading test. More information will be given about this in the Spring term from the school.
Please remember - children are also expected to understand what they read and what is read to them. This includes questions which talk about what has happenned, could happen next, how a situation has occured, how a character feels and explaining their answer, why and how they know. Children do not always have to read the scheme book from school every day. It could be a book from home they read or, for comprehension questions and understanding, have read to them.
