Assessment Week:

The children have learnt all their Phase 2 sounds now.  Please practice them and play simple games – say the sound, match sounds as pairs or make simple 2 letter (VC) words and 3 letter (CVC) words.  Extend your child to write them and practice their letter formation.  Can they write a sentence?


They have also been learning tricky words (words that cannot be sounded out):


the    to    I     go    no         


Practice these words.  Can they write them?  Can they use them in a sentence (verbally or written)?  Does it make sense?


Please look through your Sound book and practice the sounds.  Encourage your child to say the sound and do the action.  They can colour the picture and practice the letter formation for that sound if they are interested.


Return the Sound books on THURSDAYS for the next sounds to be added.  The books will be sent home again on FRIDAYS.
