Skylarks – Year 1


Welcome to Skylarks








Dear Parents

Thank you so much to you if you were able to attend our Phonics and Early Reading Workshop this morning. I hope you found it helpful. If you were unable to attend but are interested in the content I have attached the Power point used for you to see. I will shortly video members of our team teaching phonics , hopefully you may also find this quite useful when supporting your Skylark at home.

Many thanks,

Lynn Stacey

Phonics and Early Reading Information Powerpoint



Well done to all our lovely Skylarks for making such a super start to the year.  The children have settled in beautifully and we have had a fantastic couple of weeks.  We are so proud of them for coming in to school so independently - great Diamond Power Super Skylarks!


Look out for the new reading book in your child's book bag that has gone home today (Friday 16th).  This can be used for shared reading, independent reading, hunt the word, describe the picture, prediction.  Please help yourself to books in the book swap if you would like more reading material.


Next week we will be doing daily reading and your child will be engaging in either guided reading or pocket rocket readers.


Please practice bug words as much as possible as the ability to sight read words helps children with confidence and fluency.


Lastly, if anyone has a wealth of marbles or table tennis balls and 10/12 egg boxes they are happy to donate to Skylarks we would be very grateful. Thank you in advance.


Many thanks,

Skylark Team
