Reading, Phonics, Writing and Maths Information
Reading is such an important part of school life and develops phonic, word recognition and comprehension skills. Please continue to read as much as possible during your time at home.
We are revising phonemes already taught and learning new phonemes. Please use the sound mats in your home learning packs to say the sounds each day with a grown up.
A reminder of our Phonic Phase coverage is below:
Phase 2: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss
Phase 3: j, v, w, x, y, z, zz, qu, ch, sh, th, ng, ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, ur
In school we have been rehearsing sentence writing. Remember that to write a sentence, we firstly need to say the sentence.
THINK a Sentence
SAY a Sentence
WRITE a Sentence
CHECK your Sentence
Read and write these tricky words:
We are continuing to work with numbers to 20.
*Can you count to 20?
*Can you count back from 20?
*Can you order numbers to 20?
*Can you add 2 numbers together? Use your fingers to help you add 1 more. Try to write a number sentence...
We have been learning to subtract or take away. Use your fingers to help you. Show 10 fingers. Put 1 down. How many are left? Show 10 fingers, again. Put 2 down. How many are left? Show 10 fingers again and put 3 down. How many are left? Continue to 10-10=.
Do this practically each time, using your fingers. Have a go at writing a subtraction number sentence.
