The sixth class girls have spent the last few weeks designing and stitching individual crests using felt, fabric and other materials. Each crest represents important things and interests to the girl who designed it and lots of time was spent carefully stitching and embroidering them. Well done girls on your hard work!
This week’s Jolly Phonics sounds are /oa/ (e.g. goat, boat) and /ie/ (e.g. tie). They are similar to our /ai/ sound as /oa/ and /ie/ also need two letters to make its sound. Have a listen to the songs below!
