This week, the children have been continuing to learn their Set 1 Sounds th,z,ch,qu,x.
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. zig, zag, zig.
-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)
This week, the children have been learning about triangles, circles and spatial awareness.
-Go on a shape hunt around the home; can they find any triangles or circles? what about other shapes?
-Ask your child to draw a map of their route to school or a map to some buried treasure. Can they describe their route to you? The children should be using simple directions i.e. along, across, up, down, through, under.
-Ask your child to add some of the shapes we have been learning about to their picture. How many sides does a triangle have? Are they straight sides or curved? What about the circle?
Please upload any pictures of them doing this to their Tapestry account.
