Phonics & Reading
Each phonics group has lesson everyday at school.
This is what we will be covering in school over the next half term:
We have learnt all phase 2 & 3 sounds and are now revising blending and segmenting words with these sounds.
We are beginning Phase 4, which does not include new sounds, but looks at blends and clusters (e.g. tent, chimp, train, stand) and longer, two syllable words (e.g. lunchbox, windmill)
Our main focus is on independently reading and writing sentences, using the sounds we have learnt and tricky words.
We have learnt the phase 2 & 3 sounds up to and including 'oo'.
We will continue learning the phase 3 sounds until the end of the year and practise segmenting and blending words with the new sounds.
We are focusing on becoming more independent with reading and writing simple sentences (e.g. The man on the moon.)
We have learnt the phase 2 & 3 sounds up to and including 'igh'.
We will continue learning the phase 3 sounds until the end of the year and practise segmenting and blending words with the new sounds, and applying them to sentences.
(Your child should know which group they are in, but if you are unsure please check with their class teacher)
At Greave we love to read, please remember to read at home for 5-10 minutes each day, and write a comment in your child's reading diary.
Please see the Phonics packs we sent home at the end of the last half term with additional resources to support your child with their phonics.
Over the next half term we will be learning:
Sharing, doubling and halving
Counting in 2s, 5s & 10s
Continuing to solve addition and subtraction problems, using counters or a number line
Continuing to recognise and order numbers to 20
Revising 2D & 3D shape names and properties
What we've been up to...
