We teach children to read by blending sounds and write by segmenting sounds.
Blending means combining sounds to make a word. Divide the word into the individual sounds. For example /s/ /i/ /t/
Segmenting means using knowledge of sounds to break it down to /p/ /i/ /n/ in order to write the word.
Below are some high frequency words and tricky words which children are to learn to read onsight

Foundation A celebrate anti bullying week 12.11.19
We celebrated anti-bullying week by wearing our odd socks to school!
The children shared ideas of one small change they could make to ensure that our school is a happy place to be and we wrote these down in the form of a pledge.
We have displayed this pledge in our Foundation Unit as a reminder for us to always be a kind friend. Here are some of the ideas the children had:
Rayya "make sure no one is left out when you are playing"
Nimra "if someone is upset, ask them if they want to play"
Sky "ask people to play with you"
Jack "include everyone in your game"
