Dear Parents/ Carers


Our topic this term is Under the Sea. We will be learning how the sea is different to land and will discover which creatures live under the sea. We will encourage the children to ask questions and discuss where we can find more information. Valuable experiences for your child will be to go swimming and talk about how it feels to be in water, and to visit an aquarium or pet store to see real life sea creatures.


Please bring in photographs of your child's experiences to aid their communication. Thank you for the photographs we have already received - they have made a real impact on your child's learning.

Children are also beginning to learn some letter sounds. We focus on the sound that each letter makes and not the letter name. So far, we have learnt sounds s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d,g,o. Click on the link below and go to the 'say the sounds' section to further support your child with how to make the correct sound for each letter. Please ask if you would like any more guidance on phonic teaching and learning.
