Our Room 1 homework at the moment is focused on sounds and sight words. Your child will come home with the cards shown below.
Please help them practice their sounds and sight words every night. This link between learning at home and school is invaluable, as it helps them improve their reading and writing. We do not see the same results if they only learn about sounds and sight words at school.
Here is the link to the Jolly Phonics songs which we sing at school. It will help you practice the sound cards with your child at home. They show the action and picture that goes with each sound.
Starting in Week 3, your child will also bring home a school reading book. This also is to be read each night, noted in their yellow reading log, and then returned to school the next day.
The sound cards, sight words and reading books that are sent home are property of the school and need to be looked after and returned.
Thank you for investing in your child's learning at home by practicing these things.
