Reading :

Please continue to read to and with your child, their reading book, books  home and their sight words. 

 

Phonics: 

You can access some useful free games to play at https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/freeIndex.htm  

We have worked on Phases 1, 2 and 3 in school. See below in the phonics section for more information.

Also the following website is good to practise letter sounds www.teachyourmonstertoread.com (there is a small charge to use on a tablet).

 

Continue to make cvc words using the phoneme frame and cards sent home, try to make words using the digraphs and trigraphs they now know.  You say the word i.e zip, goat etc can they make it with the cards or you make a word i.e sheep can they say the sounds and blend it together to read it . Try to make it into a game - give points every time they can make a word or read a word, how many points can they get? Can they beat their score?

 

Writing:

Practise writing CVC words and short sentences.  Encourage the children to write a diary with a daily sentence, the children could use their sight words from the sheets that have been sent home previously.  

The children are also very familiar with the stories of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and 3 Billy Goats Gruff so they could retell or write parts of the story.  They could also change them to make their own versions i.e The very hungry dog or 3 little unicorns etc.  What foods would they change, or what monster would be under the bridge?

 

Maths: 

Regular counting practise to and from 20.

If you say a number, can the children say 1 more or 1 less. 

Spot 2 numbers, can they add them together. Roll 2 dice and add them together.

Play games with dice. 

Complete a number or shape hunt around your house.

Phonics


In our daily phonics sessions, the children:

  •  Practise saying the sound for each of the letters that we have learnt.
  •  Read words by saying the sounds and blending them together. We use the following mantra, We Look at the letters, make the sounds, blend the sounds together.
  •  Listen to words and then sound them out before writing them. We use the mantra, We Say the word, robot the word, write the word.
  •  Read simple sentences (using these phonics skills and recognising sight words).
  •  Write simple sentences (using these phonics skills and taking care to spell sight words correctly, using letter names).

 

Here are all of the graphemes (single letters), digraphs (2 letters making one sound) and trigraphs (3 letters making one sound) that we have covered in class.
