This week, the children have been learning the Set 2 Sounds; oo (long) & oo (short).
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. z_oo = zoo b_oo_k = book
-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 first 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. I went to the shop. 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 about 3D shape and Pattern.
As we have done in school, have a go at the activities below.
-Talk about the properties of the shape. Why do you think it rolled? Did it have a curved or straight side?
Look at the pictures below.
Can you spot the mistake? How could you correct the pattern?
Can you make/design your own pattern?
