Week beginning Monday 20th September 2021

On Wednesday this week we have our Fitness Day. Please send the children to school in their sports gear, ready to take part in all the planned fitness activities.

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.

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 he and she. You may need to help your child to write the number after counting the words together.
