They have coloured in rockets and labelled them with their names.
We have discussed the different parts of the day - daytime and nighttime - and drew pictures of things we do in these parts of the day.
We continue to learn and use new letter sounds in our reading and writing so please continue to support them by practising the letter names and sounds as often as possible.
