This week, the children have been learning the Set 2 Sounds; air & ir.
PDF downloads of the Set 2 Speed Sounds, can be found here Parent guide to Read Write Inc. Phonics | Oxford Owl
-Show your child the above sounds and words and ask them to tell you the sound.
-Can they use Fred Talk to read the words? i.e. st_iar = stair wh_ir_l = whirl
-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)
-Can they use their Fred Fingers and write some of the words above?
This week, we have been revisiting the second set of Red Words. These are words that we cannot sound out and must know by sight. Please use the following link to continue practising spotting the red word.
-Challenge your child to use these words within sentences i.e. He was loud. She was short. Can they write their sentence?
Continue to record all reading in your child's reading diary. RWI books are sent home on Monday and Grapple Books on Thursday. Each book should be read at least three times for fluency, comprehension and prosody. Your child will be reading a slightly different book in class.
This week, the children have been learning to build and identify numbers to 20. As we have done in class, recap the following activity.
Give your child two empty Ten Frames. Allow them to have multiples of objects i.e. pasta or teddies. First ask them to place something in each place on the ten frames. How many do you have? Now ask them to show you 13. How many have they had to take away? How many are there altogether? Allow more opportunities for them to show you a number by using their frames.
