Week beginning 2nd November 2020

Weekly homework is now being posted on our Google Classroom. Please let me know if you cannot access it or have lost your child’s username and password.

Now we have completed the second set of 6 letter sounds – c/k, e, h, r, m and d. 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 continue to form words using the first 12 letter sounds – red, hat, den, cat, hip, men etc.

You could try to make some of these words together at home using the individual letter sounds. This is the start of blending where we say the sounds together to read the word.
