Posted on



In Literacy this week we are excited to be learning to read, write, hear and say the l letter sound as in leg and ll as in bell.  Geraldine the giraffe can be found below for the l sound. 

We will also be practising blending the sounds we have learned to date: s a t p i n m d g o c k ck e u r f l ll.

Each class will be creating a display of objects which begin with l. If your child can find a small object to contribute please make sure it is labelled with their name and class before they bring it to school. That way each object will be returned to its rightful owner at the end of the week.

The tricky words this week are was and be. There is a mix of tricky and blendable words to be found in the dinosaur egg game at
