Here is a video that should help with the correct pronunciation of the sounds when learning to read. It explains why it is important to say the sounds correctly and explains how each sound should be pronounced.
Reading- Children should have a letter in their bag about our non-fiction focus for the next three weeks. I will not set reading pages but please read the whole book over the week and complete the worksheet for next Monday. If anybody does not have the letter find it attached. ( due Monday)
As an extra you can ask your child to buy some items you have around the house. For example, these beans are 35p and you have £1, how much change will you get? If you have some change for them to work with, even better!
Spelling- Nothing this week.
Please ask your child about the secret friend mission. You could think of some things together they could do for their secret friend.
This term we will soon be focusing on the 9x table, if you could practise this new table as well as the 4x table that would be much appreciated. Remember that the children should know the answers as fast as the learn-its.
If there are any children who need their learn-its updated please let me know. Some of the children have now begun to do subtraction and multiplication learn-its in class. If your child feels they are ready for this, please let me know.
Sum Dog– I will be setting a challenge on sumdog that covers times tables, data handling and fractions plus addition and subtraction strategies.
If anyone cannot manage to get on then I can provide alternate homework.

Please keep the booklet in the green homework bag.
