In Phonics, we are revisiting previous learning in preparation for the Phonics Screening Check which will take place in June. Please find below a document showing some of the words we have been reading in class together (I will also provide a paper copy when their reading book is changed). Reading this at home will help build both your child's confidence and phonics knowledge. Please record any extra reading like this in their reading diary and I can award house points.
Please find below the spellings that will be tested on Friday 28th April, which contain the digraphs 'oa' and 'oe' which are making the /oa/ sound. Practicing these at home will obviously help your child to feel more confident during the spelling test. I will send home a printed list of spellings with your child on a Friday in their home spelling book and they will be available on the class page below, as well as being set on Spelling Shed. House points will be awarded based on your child's performance (both academic and personal achievements).
Our Treasured Text this week is 'A First Book of the Sea' by Nicola Davies. This beautifully illustrated book contains a collection of poems about the oceans of the world and their shores. We will be reading this book over the coming weeks, as it has a lot of poems in!
In Maths, we have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and using these skills to make it easier to count larger quantities. Practising counting aloud would really benefit the children to help them be really confident in this. Maybe you could even use it count pairs of socks or shoes at home!
Below are some of the videos we have been using over the last few months to help us practise our counting in an active way:
