People Who Help Us - Home Learning Challenge

Home Learning - 02/12/22

This week in school we have been practising our Nativity Play. We have been learning all about the first Christmas and how Christmas is not just about getting presents. Below is a link to the Nativity Story.

The Nativity Story


W.C 28/11/22 : We have finished learning all the phonemes in Phase 2. This week we have been practising blending words that end in 's' and how sometimes it can make a 'z' sound. When beginning to blend words that end in 's' we hide the 's' and encourage children to sound out and blend the word first, then add the 's' on the end.

Tricky Words learnt: we, me, be

Previous Learnt Tricky Words: is I the put pull full as and has his her go no to into she, he, of, push

Over the next two weeks we will be reviewing everything we have learnt in this half term. We will also be using the Little Wandle assessment tool to assess the children on their phonics knowledge. This covers the children's recall of phonemes, their ability to blend words and their reading of the tricky words.

Tricky words do not follow the usual sounding out and blending method, e.g. the s in the word 'is' does not make the sss sound, it makes a zzz sound. We teach the children the tricky part of the word but have to learn the word by sight.

Please see the Little Wandle link below for correct pronunciation

Refer to Little Wandle Phase 2 grapheme information sheet - Autumn 1 and 2

Please practise the letter formation with your child reciting the formation phrase with them as they write (say the phoneme and formation phrase whilst showing the grapheme). 


Over the next two weeks in Maths we will be exploring different ways we can make the numbers 3-5 using five frames and how we can use objects to find one more and one less.

Please find talk and learn tasks below for the current Maths unit.
