Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic knowledge to read regular words such as, cat, shop, sleep. They also read some common irregular words such as, the, said, my. They demonstrate understanding when talking with others about what they have read. They respond to questions about the characters and plot. They make predictions about what might happen next.
Children use their phonic knowledge to write words, some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible. They also learn to write some irregular words. They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others.
We have been working so hard and have made great progress in writing and phonics. On our first day in school we worked on writing the letter shape 'c' and holding our pen correctly.
During the Autumn Term we learn how to write our first name and how to record sentences using our phonic knowledge. Here we are learning all about using the oo sound in a sentence. We are so cool!
Now it it is the end of the Autumn Term and we have been working so hard in big school. Take a look at our writing you will be impressed!
