Your child will be coming home with a pack tonight which has the sounds and words in that we have been learning. If these can be made into flash cards that would be great and if you can try to incorporate these into your daily routine it would be really useful. We have also put some fun learning activities into your packs for your child to have a go at over the next few weeks. With the words, we always say to the children “special friends, fred talk read the word”. So if the word was ‘green’, they would say ‘ee’ then g-r-ee-n then green. When they can confidently sound out the word, we would then ask if they can read it in their head before saying the word (fred in your head) and finally once they are confident reading it in their head before saying the word, we would then do speedy reading and see how quickly they can read the words. The Year 1 children have brought home an exercise book too, they can use it to record any of their work in.
There will be a range of free support so that children can continue their Read Write Inc. learning journey away from the classroom during these uncertain times. These free resources will all be added to the Read Write Inc. page on Oxford Owl website for home over the coming weeks, and we’ll continue to update you as they become available.
We will be updating the blog on a regular basis (parents will receive a letter today about this). Your child will also be coming home with a Purple Mash ID which is great online platform for some home school learning. This will be explained in our blogs. A ‘Numbot’ username and password has also been sent home and an email has been sent explaining this new service.
