Phonics

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

-Blend simple words with your child i.e. sort, fork, worn, horse, porch,  ...

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

-Can they think of more words?

 

Continue to practice Red Words. Use the following to recap Set 3.

Maths

This week, the children have been learning to counting patterns beyond 10. 

Look at the following picture. Which numbers are missing? How do you know? How many tens? How many ones? i.e. for 17, there would be 1 ten and 7 ones.

 

 

Continue to practice counting on from any number. Playing games such as Snakes & Ladders is great for this. Instead of the full game, challenge your child to beat you to a number i.e. Who can be the first to 63?

 

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

 

Reading

 

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.)
