Our topic this term is DINOSAURS! 

 

It would be great if the children could do some investigating into their favourite dinosaur. There will be plenty of opportunity to present their ideas and reasons for their favourite dinosaur in the first week back.

Term 3 Curriculum letter

Phonics

 

The children have now covered all of their phase 2 sounds.  These sounds include: 

s, a, t, p,

i, n, m, d

g, o, c, k

ck, e, u, r

h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss

 

Tricky words introduced in Phase 2:

the  

to    

I     

go

into

no

 

Alongside learning their phase 2 sounds, the children have been using their knowledge of letter sounds to blend and sound out words. For example, blending the sounds t-a-p to make the word tap. We have also been learning how to segment words. For example, the children may be asked to find the letter sounds that make the word sat. When segmenting, they are encouraged to use their phoneme fingers to help them identify the number of sounds in a word. 

 

This term we will begin learning phase 3 sounds, these will be introduced in the following order: 

j, v, w, x

y, z, zz, qu

ch, sh, th, ng

ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er

 

Tricky words introduced in Phase 3:

we 

me

be

he

she

was

my

you

they

her

all

are

 

This term we will also be looking more closely at the letter names, in addition to the letter sounds. As always, all new sounds the children learn in class will be added into their reading folders as sound cards to practise at home.

 

How can you support your child at home?

  • Share books and comics with your child - Read their favourites over and over again!

  • Listen to your child read.

  • Join the library and explore the world of books.

  • Listen to audio books.

  • Let children see you as a reader!

  • Practise reading and writing the sounds they have been taught and encourage them to apply these to everyday activities, e.g. writing shopping lists, notes, cards etc.

Reading at home

 

Please continue to read with your child at home. It is important to make sure your child enjoys the reading at home with you and it does not become a chore. Please speak to me if you are having any reluctance at home. 

 

Children need to bring in their reading folders each day. Please ensure that each time your child reads it is written in their reading record book as all reads count towards their reading certificates. Last term many children worked hard to achieve their bronze and silver reading awards! Well done smiley
