Dear Parents,

It has been an unprecedented Summer term and it is incredible to think that our last normal school day was back on the 20th March. It has been a long and at times difficult journey for many of us. A comforting feeling is the overwhelming support we have had from parents during this time and the way you have helped and encouraged your children with their learning has been amazing. As a school we thank you so much and we hope that the learning experience together with your children has been both rewarding and insightful.

This week the work set is slightly different to previous weeks as it is the time of year where we think about transitioning to our new classes.

You will all receive an email which will include a video link with an introduction to your child’s new class teacher and details of specific transition activities which need to be completed ahead of the new term.

In addition, other home learning which needs to be completed is detailed in the Home Learning Overviews on your child’s class page.


Please encourage your child to continue with their reading over the summer holidays. Details of a Summer Reading Challenge is included in this week’s work.

We know how hard the children have been working and we are looking forward to seeing their home learning projects when we return to school.

Please continue to create a routine for home learning as suggested below:

Recommended reading list Year 1

  Sample Phonic assessments can be found under the Parents page, follow the assessment link.


The five key skills taught through our synthetic phonics programme includes the following:

  • Learning the letter sounds – children are taught the 42 main letter sounds. This includes the alphabet sounds as well as digraphs such as sh, th, ai and ue.
  • Learning letter formation – using different multi-sensory methods, children learn how to form and write the letters.
  • Blending – Children are taught how to blend the sounds together to read and write new words.
  • Segmenting – this involves children identifying sounds in words so that they have the best possible start for improving their spelling.
  • Helping children with tricky words – English contains a large number of regularly used words that don’t follow a phonetic patters. This words are learnt separately, alongside children’s acquisition of phonic skills.
