ReadingPlease can you read with your child for at least 10 minutes a day.

Phonics, Phonics, Phonics!!

In Phonics, we have been looking at Phase 2 and 3 of Letters and sounds.

Now we are able to blend our phase 2 sounds to read and write words, for example: c-a-t  = cat       ch-i-p = chip 

The sounds we will be  focusing on are Phase 3, these includeL j,v,w,x,y,z, ch, sh, th, ng. 

and vowel disagraphs , ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, er, air.


Parents/carers can help us at home by practising letter formation and identifying these sounds in words in our reading books. 

Ask your teacher for your individual child’s focus sounds for the week!



In Numeracy, we have been looking at our numbers including adding, subtracting,  greater than and less than, 3D shapes and capacity. 

We are working hard to count and recognise our numbers all the way up to 20 and beyond.

Parents can help us practise this by counting with us at home, helping us form our numbers, and looking for shapes out and about!

Our Termly Topic

In our topic, this term we will be looking at “Animals". This half term we will be learning about a variety of animals, including: Pets, Sea Creatures and Minibeasts.

In our knowledge and understanding work we will be focusing on planting seeds and learning about how to care for plants. 


The EYFS Framework


Throughout Nursery and Reception, we deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile. We use this to teach each child, considering their level of development and any additional needs. A copy of this can be viewed here :

Staff are always on hand to discuss your child’s development and give advice or practical support on how to encourage learning at home as well as at school! We are happy to help!

This page will be uploaded on a regular basis will any class information, news and alerts, and pictures and videos showcasing our learning while at St Luke’s!
