This week, the children have been recapping our Set 1 Sounds e,l,h,sh,r.
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.
-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)
-Blend simple CVC words with your child i.e. met, lip, hug, shed, rod ...
Can they remember (Fred in the head) and then write these words? Can they think of more words?
This week, the children have been learning about time.
- Give your child two pieces of paper one for day and one for night. Can they draw a picture on each piece of paper to show what they do during the day and what they day at night?
- Continuing to use the piece of paper, call out certain activities that happen during the day and ask them to place a hand on day or night i.e. eating breakfast, they place their hand on day.
- Thinking about the clock: Can they remember what the big hand shows? What about the short hand? During the day, ask them what the time is (only on the hour, o'clock times!) Are they right?
Please upload any pictures of them doing this to their Tapestry account.
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 Monday and should be returned to school on Thursday so they can be cleaned and set aside.
(Not all children will be sent home a book. Children are regularly assessed on their phonic knowledge and confidence in blending CVC words.)
