● We have been learning about the letters p and n which are code for the sound /p/ as in pan and /n/ as in net. In your child’s phonics wallet you will find the sheets that they have completed in the lessons this week.
● We have then had a go at forming our letters correctly. We have been working on our pencil grip using our ‘froggy legs’ and trying to form the letters correctly using the word patters/rhymes to support us.
● We have been using our skills of blending to have a go at reading words. Your child will have a ‘My words’ list in their phonics folder.
● We have been practising segmenting to have a go at hearing the sounds all through the spoken words to get us reading for writing.
● This week we have explored the concept of amounts. We have explored ‘more’, ‘fewer’, ‘equal’ and ‘unequal’ groups. The children have then had a go at building groups of these amounts and using this new vocabulary to describe what they have built.
● In music we listened to ’Sing’ by The Carpenters. We talked about how the music made us feel and about the things it made us think of. We enjoyed learning and performing the song ‘This old man’ and practised adding actions to help us remember the lyrics.
● What can you find around your house that begins with the /p/ and /n/ sound?
● Have a go at completing some of the reading bingo challenges. Make sure you share these with us on Tapestry.
● Can you sort some objects at home? You could sort them by shape, size or colour? Can you sort the same objects in more than one way?
● Have a go at some letter formation using your finger and some shaving foam or flour! Send us your pictures on Tapestry.
