Pandas (R)

Welcome to Pandas Class 2018!

 

And welcome to our class web page. We use this page to post photographs of activities that have been happening in Panda Class as well as any useful links for use at home. Check back soon for photos, news and activities!

 

This is a link to a very useful, if not a bit dull, video to help parents with phonics at home. The aim of this video is to support all parents with the correct pronunciation of all of the sounds so that the children can be well supported at home.

To support the children with the learning of their sounds we use a series of actions call Cued Articulation. The aim of these actions are to support the children to understand where in their months they are making the sound. The video below shows all of the actions that the children will b learning alongside their sounds this year. I hope it helps.

We will be using this question to get to know everyone in Panda Class, both adults and children alike. Below is an outline of some of the activities and learning that will be happening over the next few weeks. We hope you find this helpful.
