 Welcome to Reception! 

Our Nursery have approached us to find out if you would want your child to take part in a farm workshop that is visiting the school next month. The general feedback has been to not go ahead. Thank you. 

 

 

Week Beginning 20th May we are going to be looking at the story of Mad about minibeasts.  We will be looking at rhuming words and sharing next week. Please see Literacy and math sections for more information on those specific areas. Next week we will individually read with your child on Monday and Tuesday.

 

Sorry we were not able to complete all assessments due to additional assemblies and The school trip this week.

 

 

 

Literacy 

We are continuing with our phonics and have started phase 4. Please learn the next set of tricky words that we sent home. These tricky words do not follow the rules we learn in phonics of being able to be broken down to sound out. They are words we have to learn as a whole word as well as to spell them. We are continuing to blend words together to spell and read as well as continuing to recognise the letter name e.g.  for a the name would be ai as well as the phoneme (sound) ahhh. 

 

We will be attempting to identify and hear rhyming words.

 

Phase 2 tricky words your child should now know to read and write are:

I , the, into, to, no, go

Phase 3 tricky words your child should now know to read and write are:

he, she, we, me, be, was, you, they, all, are, my, her

 

Phase 4 tricky words your child should know to read and write are:

said, have , like, so, do, some, come, little, one, there,

were, what, when

 

Phase 2 and 3 words you child should be able to confidently recognise, spell and blend are:

We are also looking at how we put simple sentences together. E.g. a space after each word which we call finger spaces. How to sound out each word and what a sentence looks like. Please see below.

What is a sentence?

A sentence is a grammatical unit made up of one or more words (Go! is a sentence, as is The cat sat on the mat.). Sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a full stop, a question mark or an exclamation point.

What is a simple sentence?

Sentences can be structured in different ways.

A simple sentence has a subject and ONLY ONE verb:

The girl sprinted after the tiger.
The cat purred.
