Week two- Phonics

Please introduce the following sounds:

air and ure.
 

Introduce the air sound. Ask your children if they can think of any words with the air sound in.

Air words: funfair, pair, hair, fairy, stairs, chair, airport.

Air sentences:
The funfair was fun.
Her hair is long and brown.
Sit on the red chair.

Practice reading words and sentences with the air sound in. You can also get your child to write words and sentences with the air sound in. You can alternate this daily.

 

Introduce the ure sound. Ask your children if they can think of any words with the ure sound in.

Ure words: cure, pure, secure, sure, assure.

Ure sentences:
Get me a cure.
It is all secure.


Practice reading words and sentences with the ure sound in. You can also get your child to write words and sentences with the ure sound in. You can alternate this daily.

 

Please use your child’s sound book and practice sounds and tricky words. There are also words in the back which you can use to practice blending.

Challenge- see how many sounds your child can recognise. This is a timed game, so you can challenge your child to beat their score the next time you carry it out.

Differentiation

Practice the formation of letters- there are lots of useful resources on Twinkl to support this. If your child is finding the formation of any letters challenging, you can model writing the letter in a yellow pen/ pencil and then encourage your child to go over the top of your yellow pen. You can encourage them to do this in several different colours so they then become more confident in the formation (rainbow formation). This is also a useful strategy to support blending.

 

Practice writing your child’s name.

 

Practice recognising phase 2 sounds and begin to practice reading/ writing simple CVC words e.g. cat, dog, mat.

 

Maths

Week Two

 

Day One – practice counting in 2’s.  Start from 0 up to 10 or 20.   Draw dots to show children 0, then 2, 4, 6 etc.  If the children are finding it difficult when counting in twos start with counting in ones and whisper the odd numbers and say the even numbers out loud.

Use the number line to find one more and one less.  Ask the children – one more than 12 is?  one less than 3 is etc.  Show the children jumping forwards by one (one more) or jumping backwards by one (one less).

Play game Chopper Squad – one more, one less. (type topmarks into Google)

Day Four – practice adding using a number line. Use the example below to support your child.

 

5 + 3 = 8

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20

 

4 + 2 =      5 + 1 =      7 + 3 =      6 + 6 =      8 + 6 =  

 

 

Day Five – practice taking away using a number line.

 

11 – 5 = 6

 

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20

 

7 – 3 =        8 – 5 =      11 – 4 =       13 – 7 =      17 – 7 =
