Hello Reception children! I hope you've all had a lovely soggy weekend. Three more days and we've made it to the Easter holidays.
Please see the link below for on line reading books. Start on the pink level of books. Its really important that you discuss the story and your child answers and asks questions about the text. It's not all about reading the words. Any questions please contact me.
We have started our phonics lessons this week. Each week I will upload a newsletter and resources (if needed) to help you to help your child. Ask your child to recognise each sound (phoneme) and please remember no ‘er’s’ at the end of the sound. I have uploaded a video by 'Mr Thorne' who demonstrates how to say the sounds of the alphabet. Please use the pictures to sound talk the words for example t-a-p, tap. Clap each sound t-a-p then say the word, tap. Use the letters (grapheme) to build the words for the pictures. As your child becomes more confident ask them to change words into another word for example ‘sap’ into ‘tap’.
If you would like a further explanation please contact me.
