Reading – Your child will receive a new reading book on Monday and Wednesday. It would be extremely helpful if you could work with your child for a short time each night.

First night with the book – read the story together, look at the pictures and discuss what’s happening. Have a look at any words in the word pot and see if your child can find them in the text. Ask your child to read the text to you, supporting them when necessary. If they are stuck with a word, encourage them to sound it out, look for clues in the picture and the story.

On the second night see what they can remember about their book from memory. Ask them to read the text to you and then focus on words from the text, or in their pot, that they struggled with.

Common WordsI and is. P1 will get the Common Word homework on a Monday and should be completed for the Thursday.

Phonics – This week we will be practising the letters c and e.  Please continue to work with your child in consolidating the sounds s, a, t, i, p and n by using the sounds found in their envelope at the front of their H/S Book.

P1 had ‘Word Making ‘homework put into the H/S book at the end of last week. If your child has not completed this activity yet, please help them to do it in the next few days.

P2 will be reading and writing 3 letter words.  Spelling homework will be given on a Monday to be returned for Thursday.
