In Foundation stage from now until  October half term we are following the whole school topic Hakuna Matata and all things Africa.Our  timetable consists of daily phonic sessions, Phonics is a method of teaching children to read by linking sounds (phonemes) and the symbols that represent them(graphemes, or letter groups). This is then followed by a talk for writing/power of reading session.Our stories from Africa are  Tanka Tanka Skunk by Steve Webb and The Leopard’s Drum by Jessica Souhani. Our daily maths sessions are focusing on recognising numbers and the value of number and using the mastery approach.
