Sounds: This week we are not learning any new sounds but focussing on revising the ones we have learnt and using these to make short words. The children have been given a new set of sounds which have the last six sounds that we have learnt. They also have a list of words to learn to read and to make using their sounds. The list of words can be cut up. These short words can all be sounded out to help the children learn to read them.
Reading: Please help your child to read their new book. They will keep the book for a week but will be doing other activities connected to the book. Some of these will be sent home for homework.
Please supply an envelope for your child to keep all their key words and sentence strips from their reading books.
A reminder that we have the trip to Dynamic Earth on Wednesday. Please return the slip about packed lunches particularly if you wish to have a free school packed lunch. Of course you are welcome to supply your child’s own packed lunch if you wish to.
The Parent Council Halloween disco is on Thursday evening, information has been sent home in their reading bags.
