Weekly Update Friday 1st December 2023
Summary of this week:
Thank you to everyone who was able to come to our phonics workshops this week. We hope that the short notice didn’t prevent parents from attending but were keen for the workshops to take place this half term and hall time is at a premium with all the rehearsals for our two Infant School Christmas productions! We hope that you found the workshops helpful in understanding how to support your child’s learning at home and will today be sending home some ideas for games and activities as well as information on the pronunciation and formation of the phonemes and graphemes. If you have any further questions about phonics and early reading, do please speak with your child’s class teacher.
Christmas is coming and the children have enjoyed starting to make cards and decorations as well as practicing for our Nativity next week. We look forward to seeing you there!
Our learning next week:
Maths: We will be exploring length, height and width.
Literacy: We will be starting to use the story Dear Santa to write Christmas letters.
Phonics: The graphemes and phonemes we will learn this week are z, qu and ch and we shall be learning how to read the plural s. The tricky words we will learn are no, go, to and into.
Vocabulary: Christmas Fair, gifts, money, shopping
Maths: Play a game using some dice. Encourage the children to subitise (say the number without counting) the number shown on the dice.
Literacy: Look for our tricky words the, I, is, pull, put, full, and, has, his, her and as in your library book this week.
Vocabulary: Play eye spy and describe the sound you are saying being the ‘initial sound’ in the word to help the children become familiar with this vocab.
