  Curriculum Summary - Summer 2019   

English: As well as daily phonics and grammar activities, the children will be reading stories linked to days of the week.  Children will read 'Anna's Amazing Multicoloured Glasses' and will write a story linked to this.  This will lead the children to write their own stories.  Children will also learn about the story of 'Rosie's Walk' linked to our topic on 'The local area'.

                                              

Reading: Reading is an integral part of everyday class life.  Your child will read every day in class, either through guided, shared or individual reading.  To support your child's reading progress, we ask that they read every night at home.
