Welcome to Fir Tree
Welcome to Fir Class Pages where you will find information about what we are enjoying in our learning.
In Fir Class we have specialist phonics English and Maths lessons for deaf pupils.
Each week we study a text as part of phonics. The children take a copy of their phonics book home to read alongside their individual reading books.
Parents and carers can really help their child by listening to them read every night and recording this in their school journal. When children read regularly at home, they are rewarded by better progress in their reading. In addition, we have half-termly reading rewards for pupils who have read more than 5 times a week.
Every Monday we check how many times the children have read at home. We also have a spelling test and give out new spellings.
We are thoroughly enjoying our English lessons in which we are learning to write instructions. This week we have followed instructions on how to make a rice crispy cake head. We followed instructions on how to put a face on our cake head, using different sweets. The children thoroughly enjoyed this activity especially the part where we ate the cake!
