This week, the children have been recapping the Set 2 Sounds; ar.

-Blend simple words with your child i.e. car, bar, part, star, start...

-Can they remember the word? Use 'Fred in the head' and then write these words.

-Can they think of more words?



This week, the children have been learning to build numbers beyond 10.

Using the two ten frames, explore different ways of making numbers beyond 10. 

Ask your child to represent a number in the frames i.e. 17. An example is shown below.


What do they notice? Did they count from 1 to 17? Could they have counted on from 10?

What is one less than 17? What about one more?


Ask them to represent other teen numbers. To encourage counting on from 10, only ask them to empty one of their frames, so they always start with 10. Shown below.


Please upload any pictures of them doing this to their Tapestry account.




Library Books

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.)
