Lunsford: A Journey of Success and Excellence

Panda (Year R)


Welcome to Panda Class! 







Welcome to Panda class

We are learning our sounds rapidly now and able to segment and blend words! 

We enjoy reading cvc words and we can look at the beginning, middle and end sounds. We have been looking at numbers and how we can make them in different ways. We have enjoyed making repeating patterns and looking at which container can hold the most.  


Phonics and reading

We take part in reading sessions 3x week. We focus on decoding, prosody and comprehension. We then take that reading book home to read. We are enjoying sharing our skills with our family. 


We have learnt so many sounds already and are able to spot them in words. We are trying to segment and blend to read words. 





In maths we are looking at how to make numbers in different ways. We will look at one more and one less from different numbers. Later on in the term we will look at shapes with four sides and discuss their properties. 

We will continue to investigate mass in the outside area with sand, water, construction and the mud kitchen.

Useful information:

PE on Monday - PE kit please. 

Remember the children need a water bottle everyday please. 

Make sure all clothing is named - this is essential in Panda class as jumpers all look the same! 

Please let members of staff know if there is a change of adult picking up via Tapestry.
