Spratton CE Primary School

'Living and learning together, celebrating life in all its fullness'

EYFS Class


This week we started our daily Phonics lessons. The children all enjoyed joining in with the lessons and practising the letters and sounds taught, in a variety of activities throughout the week. During the week, the children have learnt to recognise the letters  s, a, t, p and to recall and say the sound (phoneme) created by each of these individual letters. 

We had lots of fun creating the letters using natural objects and then saying the sound made by each letter.

What sounds do the letters below make?

The children enjoyed working together to form the letters. 

Remember to learn the sounds (phonemes) created by the letters in your wallets!


The children enjoyed visiting our whole school 'Story Circle' on the field and listening to and joining in with a class story. 

Throughout the week, the children have had a happy time exploring, learning and playing co-operatively.

Developing fine motor skills and control in the Writing Area.

Imaginative play in the Small World Area.

Imaginative and creative play in the Sand Area.

Listening attentively to a story, whilst developing the skills to use the CD player independently. 

Fun in the Water Area, whilst developing the skills to use everyday language related to capacity.


The children all settled very well and had a lovely time exploring, learning and playing together, during their first few days at school.
