Reading: As per the reading card in their reading books. Please also revise all their words regularly.
Phonics: We are learning 3 new sounds this week: ie, ee or and z. The sounds where two letters are together are more complicated and your child may find these harder to learn. It is important that your child understands that the two letters make one sound. We use a short rhyme for the two-vowel sounds: ‘When two vowels go walking the first one does the talking,’ (although this is not always the case) meaning the first vowel says its name not its sound.
Science: Please continue the moon phase observation sheet.
Miss Brunt and I hope to get more information out this week about the parts in the nativity. All children have been asked if they would like a speaking part and those that wanted to have been auditioned.
Don’t forget we are collecting second-hand or unwanted toys and books for the Christmas Fair -if you have any to donate please hand them in to us or at the office.
