I have just come across a TV programme on CBeebies called 'Alphablocks'. It is a 5 minute programme that can be accessed through the BBC iplayer, the CBeebies website or youtube. It clearly demonstrates segmenting and blending of CCVC CVC and CCCVC words, the correct pronunciation of the sounds and sounds across all phases. There is also a CBeebies BBC magazine on sale which has an 'Alphablocks' focus which went on sale last Monday. It might be useful for your children.
Below is a link to the 'Alphablocks' programme.
A big well done to all Year One children for a fantastic week of performances. You were fantastic in the school nativity and confidently told the story of the Christingle today during our assembly. Well done super stars!
Miss Tyrer and Mrs Thompson.
This week we have been working scientifically. We have focused on some Roald Dahl books (Georges Marvellous Medicine and The BFG) to help us. We have been completing lots of experiments. To do this we have undertaken special roles such as equipment officer, record keeper, supervisor, health and safety officer and photographer. We have asked lots of scientific questions, predicted the outcome of experiments, observed changes and shared lots of ideas.
Today we made dream jars and investigated what would happen if we mixed oil and water together. See the pictures to find out what happened.
If you would like to do this at home click on the link below. I would love to see the results!
