Welcome to Wallaby Class’ page!

I cannot believe it is term 6; where did the time go. In fact, time and change will be at the centre of our inquiry-based learning for the final term with the theme of ‘Where we are in Place and Time’. We will be looking back at our journey through the children’s first year in school, and gradually begin to look at what happens next. We will also explore what else changes through time in the world around us. We have begun the term by watching and learning about butterflies as they emerge from their chrysalises. Later in the term, we will visit the Rare Breeds Centre – please remember to bring in your child’s permission slip and payment.

We have begun our programme of Phonics, beginning with listening skills and hearing the variety of different sounds in words and all around us. Soon, we will begin to teach the sounds (phonemes) that the letters of the alphabet make. We follow the government designed ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme, and use the ‘Jolly Phonics’ songs and visuals (see the links below).
