Week beginning 1st October 2018

This week parent interviews are on Tuesday and Thursday.

Letter Sounds

This week our letter sounds are c/k and e. Letter c/k homework should be completed for Wednesday and letter e homework should be completed by Friday.

Common Words

Every week in school the children will be introduced to two common words. These will be revised daily and displayed in the classroom. Our aim is for the children to recognise and be able to read the words. They can be reinforced at home by completing the common word homework for Thursday each week. Words for this week are me and and. You may need to help your child to write the number after counting the words together.

Reading

Reading books will continue to be changed daily for the books with no words, except on a Friday. The children will hear the extended story in school and can retell the story to an adult at home. Remember to refer to the reading letter, and ideas for questions are inside the front and back cover of the books.

Word Pots

The children still have the main character names in their word pot. Kipper, Biff, Chip, Mum, Dad and Floppy. Keep revising any words your child does not remember. New words will be introduced soon along with the reading books with words.

Maths

At the moment our maths work is mainly oral. We have been listening to Number Zoo stories related to the numbers 1-10, counting aloud together and individually and matching and counting in games on the computer. We have also been looking at the shapes of the numbers and what they look like so we can recognise a number symbol out of sequence.

Letter Sounds

This week we are revising our first six sounds – s, a, t, i, p, n. For homework use the letters in the envelope at the front of the pink book to make simple 2/3 letter words such as tin or pat. Please write the words you make on the sheet in the pink book for Friday.
