Practise sounds taught to date. Make a note of all sounds that were difficult and revise daily.
Complete the phonics worksheet (attached below) matching the picture to the correct initial sound. Help your child with any sounds they find difficult to write by encouraging them to practise writing them several times.
- Practise tricky words daily. Make flash cards and focus on two or three words daily. Encourage your child to write them. Tricky words are words you read by sight (They cannot be sounded out) Practise writing the words in glitter/coloured sand/fine layer of flour in a tray etc.
- Today we would like you to practise handwriting. The more you practise, the better you will get at it. With your grown up; look the at the attached Alphabet sheet. Now have a go at writing the letters. Before Christmas we sent home name writing/handwriting sheets. You can use these too. Practise writing your name daily. It is very important you have a short session daily to practise handwriting. Focus on a few sounds every day and practise writing them in your Home Learning books. Well done for all your hard work today.
- Today's task is to write sentences. In your books write sentences beginning with I am. For example;
- I am big
- I am four
- I am fit
- Can you think of other words you could write starting with I am?
Great, now have a practise completing the fine motor skills activity sheet below. Very carefully with your pencil, follow the straight line, wavy line, zig zag line etc.
Excellent work today children!
