'Opportunity For All To Succeed'

 

Welcome to Penguins! 

This half term our topic is all about animals. We will be learning about farm animals and where our food comes from. We will also be learning about wild animals and dinosaurs!

We will continue to work hard on our reading and phonics and continue to develop our skills in Maths fluency.

We had a wonderful time with the animals from Ark Farm!

Can you learn the songs to help you with the phonic sounds?

Please also help us to help the children by reinforcing the sounds being taught at school. Phonics is the method by which we teach reading and writing. Here are some videos which demonstrate the correct pronunciations.
