We hope that everyone is enjoying the last of our summer, we love Autumn so look forward to lots of autumnal adventures this term 🍂.
🔤 Phonics – This week we are not learning any new sounds. We have learned the sounds s,a,t,p,i,n and are having a focus on segmenting and blending words using magnetic boards as well as trying to write them. There are lots of words you can make with the first 6 sounds e.g. pin, sat, tin, nip, tan, sin, tap etc. In class we will be saying the words out slowly and seeing if we can hear the 3 sounds in them then making or writing them.
We are also identifying initial sounds e.g. what sound can you hear first in the word tap? These skills are tricky and and practise at home would be amazing. We have provided some green sound cards for you to use.
We play some games on the SMARTboard to enhance our learning, if you wish to use these at home the links are here:
Please continue to support your child to learn their key words and read every night. we will have a book for mon/Tues and a new one for wed/Thurs.
We are continuing to count to 20, forwards and back. We are also sequencing and ordering numbers so children can gain an understanding of quantity and where a number is placed on a number line. We love using this game in class
We are also discussing which numbers come before, after and between numbers within 20 and learning to write numbers correctly.
Please can you provide a photo of your family, pets etc (please see previous post) this will help make our home corner more meaningful.
We are also looking for junk for junk modelling.
