Tricky word reading and Spelling list.
Spring Term 2020
Please continue to read a minimum of three times a week with your child and record this in your child's reading record. By recording any reading done at home, this counts towards our class percentage for the reading challenge each week. In order to win the challenge, we have to be able to see that the children have been listened to read at home at least three times.
Please practise reading and spelling the tricky words which are attached above with your child each week. They will know some already which is great, so please work on the phase that is appropriate for your child. At the end of each term we check to see how many of the words the children can read and spell, so please practise these on a regular basis.
One of the skills we are working on with the children is their quick recall of numbers and number facts. Please practise some of the following with your child on a weekly basis:
-Identifying numbers in a random order to 20 and then beyond.
-Ordering numbers to 20 and then beyond.
-Counting beyond 20.
-Find one more/one less of any number. This can then be developed further to finding two or three more of a number.
-Adding and subtracting numbers together.
-Number formation- ensuring that the children can form their numbers correctly.
-Number bonds to 10/20- knowing which two numbers add together to make 10/20.
- Learning the 10, 2 and 5 times tables.
-Finding half of a shape or number.
-Identifying 2D and 3D shapes
-Describing the properties of 2D and 3D shapes.
This half term our topic is Africa. The children's creative task is to create something in association with our topic to bring in and share. A few suggestions might be:
- Painting/drawing of an African animal.
- Clay model of an African animal.
-Information book, leaflet or poster with facts about Africa.
-African patterns using different materials.
- Create a map of Africa.
Please could all homework projects be labelled and come into School on Monday 10th February 2020. We will then have a share session, where the children can talk about what they made and how they did it etc.
