The following games will give practice identifying initial sounds http://www.letters-and-sounds.com/phase-2-initial-sound-game-1.html recognising letters (we have only learned to ll) http://www.ictgames.com/phonemePopLS_v2.html  and blending words using the letter sounds we have learned http://www.ictgames.com/blendingBingo_LS.html (you will need to print out or make Bingo cards first).

At home the children can have great fun with a pad of post its and a pencil so that they can label in the objects in their room or the house, eg by writing d on a post-it and sticking it on the door, dor would be very acceptable too!

Each class will be creating a display of objects which begin with r and f. If your child can find a small object to contribute please make sure it is labelled with their name and class before they bring it to school. That way each object will be returned to its rightful owner at the end of the week.

The tricky words this week are he and she. Hunting for he and she in their favourite story book is a super way to help the children recognise these words!

literacy

In Literacy this week we are excited to be learning to read, write, hear and say two more letter sounds (c), (k) and the end sound (ck). 

We will also be practising blending the sounds we have learned to date: s a t p i n m d g o c k ck.  Each class will be creating a display of objects which begin with c and k. If your child can find a small object to contribute please make sure it is labelled with their name and class before they bring it to school. That way each object will be returned to its rightful owner at the end of the week.

We will also be learning the tricky words the and no. Tricky words are words which would not usually be created by blending the individual letter sounds together. Searching for these words in the children’s own story books is an excellent way of practising recognition. Listening to the tricky word song found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvMyssfAUx0 is an excellent way to help children recognise them.

Reading Talk

There will be a talk about learning to read in Reception at the BSB, and how the children can be helped at home, on Tuesday 6th November 1-2pm.

Cardigans & Jumpers

Some children are beginning to find the classroom ac units a little cool now that the weather is becoming more pleasant.  It is not possible to make the temperature suit everyone so if your child is complaining of the being cold in the classroom please can you send a school uniform jumper or cardigan with them to school each day. As jumpers and cardigans are removed and put back on over the course of a school day it is particularly important that they are labelled with your child’s name and class.
