goldilocks 4A

Hi everyone. Here are some photos and a very short video of the story "Goldilocks". Unfortunately, Angela was recording and had to leave and we didn't get a chance to record the whole story.

I hope you enjoy it.

We are reading!

The 5 year olds are practising reading by "blending" sounds. This video shows the children "buddy reading" simple words and ends with Ainhoa demonstrating how to blend the sounds to say the word.

Well done!



If you would like to use these word cards at home, they can be found here.
