Continue to practise 'Awesome Rainbows' and 'You are the Best'. If you want to learn a new routine try 'The Coolest Person' by Koo Koo Kanga Roo too. Lots of lovely songs and dance movements to remind you how special you are.
Now we will practise our letter formation, use different writing resources across the week to ensure children don't become bored but maintain their interest and enthusiasm. Today focus on the letters l, t, i, u, j, y. Remember to form each letter accurately. Refer to the handwriting ditty sheet to help you.
Using the set 2 sounds folder look at the oy sound, naming the sound. Discuss how the sound is made with the letters o and y. Now look at the oi sound this also makes the sound oi but is made using an 'o' and an 'i'. Watch the online phonics session with Geraldine the Giraffe. Practise reading and spelling some of the following words; join, voice, coin.
Reading Challenge: Now ask your child to apply the sound of the day into reading a sentence; I have a loud voice when I shout.
Writing Challenge: Now ask your child to write the sentence, I put lots of coins in my purse.
Encourage your child to start the sentence with a capital letter, after they sound out and record each word remind them to leave a finger space before starting to write the next word. Finally remind them to finish the sentence with a full stop.
LITERACY: READING / WRITING (SPELLING)
Remember to practise your reading at least three times a week by either reading your book in your book bag or by logging onto Reading Buddy. Develop your fluency by re-reading the same text a number of times. Practise makes perfect!
Using the sheets sent to include with the phonics folder, practise words on the High Frequency Words Phase 2 and Phase 3 sheets. Practise reading some of the words that the children are unsure of. Continue to practise these words across the week to enable the children to retain more of the words.
This week focus on spelling the following words; you, all, are, her, they. This can be done by looking at the word, saying the word, copying the word, covering the word then writing the word from memory alone. Focus on a few words each day but remember to always practise the spellings learnt on previous days so that these words are not forgotten as new words are focused on.
Using your child's favourite soft toy place the toy in various places around the garden, encouraging your child to accurately describe where their toy is. Focus on developing the following language; under, in, on, infront, over, next to, between and behind. Continue to focus on developing the specific language that the children struggle with. Then using the images below encourage your child to describe where each of the images is using the language they have been focusing on, including the terms left and right.
