Phonics - Read, Write Inc.
The children learn their letter sounds through the Read, Write Inc scheme. Information sheets to support this will be sent home. Please help your child to learn their letter sounds at home as well as in school and encourage them to identify objects beginning with the sounds, e.g. s – snake, sausage.
Reading books will be sent home daily ~ please return them to school every day.
Children will be encouraged to hold and use pencils and other writing implements correctly. They will start by exploring a variety of writing implements and strengthening their fingers and hand muscles through lots of games and activities.
Then, when we are ready, we will move onto forming letters.
Please help your child learn to practise with writing their name correctly.
Your child will start to learn to count, recognise, write and order numbers with lots of practical games and activities. Please encourage your child to count objects at home and learn to recognise and write their numbers (1-10). We are using a mastery approach towards number through the White Rose Maths scheme. This means that we will begin the term by focusing on smaller numbers (1-5) in great depth for e.g. investigating one more/ less, number bonds etc. We will also be exploring shapes, measures, money, patterns, time etc.
