Welcome back to the new term. We hope you had a lovely Easter break.

Gym – Monday and Friday

Handwriting – This week we will be practising the letters v and w.

Handwriting Homework – Tuesday and Thursday.

Common words – This week we will be making, reading and writing the words play and with .

Please help your child to practise reading the common words by using the words in their word pots to play games and test their word recognition skills. Lots of the common words can’t be sounded out so the children need to be encouraged to look at the shape of the whole word and use letters to help them. Please practise the words on the common word wall (found in their Home School Book). See if your child can match the words in their pot with the ones on the wall and then help them to try and read them. If the words are ticked they were able to read them in class.

Reading – We are continually working with the children to check their recognition of the 26 sounds, their common words and their understanding of text. Your child will get either a reading book or a reading activity on Monday and Wednesday this week.

Maths – We are continuing our work on Numbers to 20. This week we will be focussing on ordering numbers to 20 and reading and writing the number names.

Topic – This week we will be finishing off our topic My World and beginning our new topic Sea and Seashore.
