Dear Parents,

In phonics this week the children have been learning to recognise the phonemes:

  • y(Writing rhyme: Whoosh up, down a horn, up a horn, under his head and curl
  • z(Writing rhyme: Whoosh up, zig, zag, zig)
  • qu(Writing rhyme: Whoosh up, round her head, up past her earrings and down her hair. Then: Whoosh up, down and under, up to the top and draw the puddle for the u)

The children have been learning to sight read a selection of high frequency words. We are calling these our ‘tricky words’ because many of them cannot be sounded out using our phonics skills. Please use the words attached to practise their quick recognition of these at home.

The children have also been practicing reading and writing three and four letters words using the phonemes above. If you would like to support them at home in this area of learning please encourage them to practise writing a few words in their sharing book this weekend (e.g. jam, jump, van, vet, wet, wig, fox, box, yes, yell, zip, zig) and continue to support them to practise reading words using their school reading book and their Reading Bugs login details (if you have any problems with their login details please write this in your child’s monkey book and I will check them next week)

In maths this week the children have continued to develop their understanding of addition and their ability to use objects, their fingers and a tens frame to help them solve the number sentences given.

Small Reminders

  • Friday 2nd February is ‘Number Day’ and the children have been asked to dress up in digits. This may be in an outfit your child already has e.g. a football shirt, a cap or hoody or in a homemade outfit e.g. a t-shirt with numbers written on or Mrs Hale has recommended the following link for more ideas:
