We will be continuing with our reading programme Read, Write, Inc where the children will continue to learn their speed sounds, we ask them to remember to use their knowledge of their sounds when they are reading at home too. Individual reading books will be sent home on a Friday, please fill in the home/school reading diary and let me know if your child finds their books easy, difficult or just right!
We have a weekly spelling test on a Friday. It is really important that the children learn the spellings that are sent home because they are common exception words and words with sounds that they need to know by the end of Year 1. We ask them to remember that it isn’t just about getting the spellings right for the spelling test; their writing will improve greatly if they remember the correct spelling of words and sounds in other writing too.
