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 for the ay, ee, igh, ow, oo, oo, ar and or words. 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.
