Home Learning Letter 25.01.18

Dear Parents,

The children have had a great week learning through the book ‘The Ugly Five’.  They have read the story numerous times, written a list of their favourite animals, counted animals, added animals together to find the totals, made their own binoculars and even been on a Safari Hunt!

Next week we are learning from the story ‘The Smartest Giant In Town’.  The children will be painting large Giants, writing rhyming words and making silly sentences, going on a rhyming hunt, counting spots on ties and learning to double numbers such as 1+1, 2+2, 3+3, 4+4 and 5+5.  They will also be pairing socks together and counting in twos, ordering the Giant’s belts in size and designing a new tie for him too. 

To help with next weeks work, please could you send in any unwanted pairs of socks – these can be any size or colour BUT will not be returned, so only send them in if they are no good to you.

Phonics – this week you will be getting a phase 3 sound mat to see which sounds they have been learning.  Use this as well as the phase 3 flashcards to reinforce the sounds.  Spot them in your child’s reading.  For example – ‘ee’ oh look, double e, makes an ‘ee’ sound. Look at this word ‘feet’ it has this sound in.  It is not sounded out as ‘f  e  e  t’. 

Everyone is doing really well with the home learning tasks and the children are enjoying sharing these in class.

I haven’t been in a couple of days this week, due to my own children being poorly but Mrs Yeomans and Team Red have done an absolutely sterling job of keeping the learning and fun at high levels!  Full steam ahead next week.

Parents Evening – This is in a couple of weeks – if you haven’t done so already, please book in to see us.  We will be letting you know where your child is up to and what they need to do next.  Can’t believe we are nearly half way through the year!

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Newman and Red Team
