Your child will be bringing home a practice sheet each Friday from our new handwriting scheme Kinetic Letters. Please work with your child and encourage them to say the words that accompany each letter as well as practicing the physical movements in the air.
Here you will find a link to the online letters and sounds videos. Regular practise of phase 3, 4, and 5 sounds will help your child during the Spring term.
Please encourage your children to read their books as often as possible. The book 'I can read' is matched to their phonics ability and should be decodable. The 'book to share' is one that will include some unfamiliar words and should be read to encourage reading for pleasure. The book to share can be changed as often as required, however the book I can read is changed once a week during your child's guided reading session.
We will be sending home common exception words to learn after half term. Once your child can read them, they can learn to spell them too.
