Useful Information

Here are some things you can do to help your child at home!

Reading

We will continue to learn and revise the Read Write Inc Set 2 sounds, which has been previously given to you on a handout. If you would like this again please do ask.


We will also be learning the Phase 4 tricky words: have, said, like, so, do, some, come, were, there, little, one, when, out, what
(with actions to help us remember them!)

We will be applying the sounds into reading words and sentences.

Please continue to read a book with your child daily and practise reading and writing the keywords provided in your child's reading record. 

 

Writing

Ask your child to write some simple words or sentences and see if they can make good attempts at sounding out the words independently using their learnt sounds. It can be more fun to give this a purpose e.g. Can you write this shopping list for me? Can you write a note for Grandma? Make a sign so we don’t forget to…

Practise forming letters correctly and try to encourage cursive writing as they will be encouraged to write like this in Year 1.
Maths

Continue practising counting to 20 and backwards from 20. If you feel your child is confident in this then try looking at a 100 square and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

Do some simple adding and taking away using practical objects e.g.:

 “I have 16 peas left on my plate and I am going to eat 6 of them – how many will be left?” Check by counting!
“I have 9 pegs here but I need 12 – how many more do I need?”
“I have 7 sweets and you have 13, who has the most? How many more do you have?”

 “There are 10 pieces here, you can have half each – can you share them out equally? “

 Please adapt any ideas to be relevant to the stage your child is working at the moment.

Other Learning Ideas

If you have any books about pirates or the seaside that would like to share, please feel free to bring them in.

Visit the beach and go on a hunt for sea creatures, rocks and shells.
