Week 6- This week we are listening to the story 'Harry and the dinosaurs go to school'. 

We will be doing lots of Mark making in our little classroom area and looking for / using lots of letters, e.g foam letters hidden in the sensory trough, spaghetti letters to spoon into bowls, using play dough letter cutters- as well as magnetic letters we can arrange on the easel and sponge letters we can print with. 

Through our play activities, we will be teaching the children the sounds of the letters.
