Homework

Please read with your child for 15 minutes a day. It is important they read the home reading books provided repeatedly to promote fluency, pace and expression. We have also sent home the sound sheets for the sounds taught this week. It is important for your child to first recognise the 'special friends' and then Fred talk the words. Once they are confident with that ask them to Fred in head and say the word.  

 

We call the 2/3 letters that play nicely together to make a sound 'special friends.' For example, the a and y play nicely together to make the sound ay. We Fred talk the word 'play' by saying each sound individually, then reading the whole word (p-l-a-y - play). 

 

It is also important for your child to practise counting and recognising numbers to 20.  The children have been learning to find 1 greater than and 1 less than numbers within 10. 

 

Please use this link to NUMBOTS to practise mathematical skills.

I have a copy of your child's NUMBOTS password if it has been lost.

Reading:

Please see the booklets that have been sent home this week (same sound  - different spelling & nonsense words).  Please practise finding special friends, Fred talk and read the word.  

 

Please read with your child daily, for 15 minutes.

Please practise Set 1/2/3 Sounds Blending Sheet daily.

Please see speedy words in your child's bag and practise reading them in a speedy way. First ask your child to Fred in head and say words without hesitation.  Then encourage your child to commit those words to memory.  

 

The children have been given the green words and speedy words for the books they will be reading in school next week to practise. 

 

Please see the Set 1/2/3 nonsense words that have been sent home. 

Writing:

Please practise the spellings shared in your child's spelling book nightly. The spellings for this week are some of the months of the year and some red words. Please remind your child that every month begins with a capital letter and that capital letters should be sized appropriately.  

 

Maths: 

Please practise writing numbers to 100 and the pairs that make 8, 9 & 10. We are now learning to count on in 2s, 5s and 10s. There are some helpful and fun clips below. 

 

Please see the 2D/3D shape clips.

Project:

Please see the knowledge organiser for our summer topic 'Bright Lights, Big City.' 

 

We have also sent home the beans that the children have planted. The children have been asked to take care of them during the holiday and bring them back into school for observation.   

 

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs Darbinson
