Please find attached details of what we have been learning in Class 1 during our first 2 weeks in school. I have also included some suggestions of things you could do at home, to reinforce what we have been learning in school
I would usually send a book home for the children to bring into school and share their work. Unfortunately, this is not possible at the moment. If you and your child would like to share, what they have been doing at home, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then share their work in school.
I have been really impressed with the amount of children that have been reading their phonics book at home. I cannot stress the importance of reading with your child at home. Please listen to your child read at home as much as possible. It really does make a huge difference to your child’s progress in reading.
The video clip below will help you to understand how we teach the ‘pure’ pronunciation of sounds in phonics sessions. Learning the pure sounds are key, to help with the process of blending sounds to read words.
Below is a link to help support handwriting at home. This link shows the correct formation of letters that we have been learning in school.
If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact me on the Class 1 email address.
