This week, the children have been recapping the Set 2 Sounds; ir.
-Blend simple words with your child i.e. dirt, third, girl, bird, twirl...
-Can they remember the word? Use 'Fred in the head' and then write these words.
-Can they think of more words?
Continue to practise Red Words. Use the following to recap Set 5.
This week, the children have been learning about Adding On. We have been using First, Then, Now stories to do this. Look at the following picture.
-How many children are on the bus first? Then? Now?
-Can you write a number sentence to show this? Remember your + and =.
-Can you create your own first, then, now story? You may want to use things from around the house, or you may even like to draw one.
Children will be sent home with a library book on Thursday to enjoy over the weekend with their siblings/family. Please return this on Monday so they can be cleaned and set aside.
RWI Book Bag Books
Children will be sent home with a RWI Book Bag book that matches the one they have been reading with adults in school. Books will be sent home on Thursday and should be returned to school on Monday so they can be cleaned and set aside.
It is important that all books are read more than once (we recommend three times) so that your child can first decode, then grow fluency and comprehension. Please record all reading in your child’s diary.
(Not all children will be sent home a book. Children are regularly assessed on their phonic knowledge and confidence in blending CVC words.)
