Please listen to your child read on a daily basis. Regular practise is so important. Ask them to sound words out if they don't know them and try to blend the sounds to say the word.
Please ask your child questions about the book they are reading.
Speed Sound Lesson
Please find below the sounds taught in class each day and example words containing these sounds.
Please write these on individual pieces of paper and show them to your child. They then need to look for special friends e.g. ee in the word tree, or naughty special friends e.g. i-e in the word wide. Once they have identified these, the children then need to sound out the word and say the word.
Now say one of these words to your child, ask them to count how many sounds are in the word and show you using 'Fred fingers'.
E.g. the word is 'card' - the children sound this out and show 3 fingers for the sounds c, ar and d
Please give your child an example of a simple sentence including one of these words and ask them to have a go at writing it. Remind them about capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.
The children can have a go at maing up their own sentences using these words.
