This week, the children have been recapping our Set 1 Sounds m,a,s,d,t.
Using your child's green My Set 1 Speed Sounds Book, please...
-Show your child the above sounds and ask them to recount the sound to you.
-Ask your child to trace the sound with their finger, repeating it's phrase as they trace i.e. A thing on a string.
-Using a scrap piece of paper and a pencil, allow your child to mark make the sound either independently, or trace around one you have written for them. (This does not need to be sent to school)
-Blend simple CVC words with your child i.e. mat, sat, mad, sad.
Can they remember (Fred in the head) and then write these words?
This week, the children have been learning to count to 5.
- From a larger set of objects i.e. 10 teddies, ask the children to count out 5.
- Write numerals 1 to 5 on separate pieces of paper and then ask your child to go and find things to place on each piece of paper i.e. 1 doll, 2 teddies, 3 cars and so on. Can they match their amount to the right numeral?
- Give your child a number between 1 & 5 and then ask them to show you that number on their fingers. Are the able to show you the number without needing to count their fingers?
- Likewise, show your fingers (1-5). Are they able to tell you the number you are representing without counting?
Please upload any pictures of them doing this to their Tapestry account.
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 Monday and should be returned to school on Thursday so they can be cleaned and set aside.
(Not all children will be sent home a book. Children are regularly assessed on their phonic knowledge and confidence in blending CVC words.)
