At the end of this week we have the September Holiday Weekend. School is closed on Friday 24th and Monday 27th September.

Now we have completed the first 6 letter sounds – s, a, t, i, p and n. This week in school we will revise these sounds and do some activities to consolidate them. Matching pictures to their initial sound, forming the letter sounds and thinking of things which start with the letter sounds. We can now also start to form words using these letter sounds – sat, pin, at, in, sip, tin etc.

For homework try to make some of these words together at home using the individual letter sounds in the yellow envelope at the front of the pink book. This is the start of blending where we say the sounds together to read the word.
