On Fridays we usually do yoga with Mrs Wills. Encourage your child to change into sports clothes independently like we do at school and then complete this workout together.
At the end, take some time to talk about the learning that you have completed together this week. What does your child think they did well and what do they think they could do with practising a bit more. You could then revisit some activities over the weekend if you want to.
On Fridays, we usually review the sounds that we have learnt this week. Practise writing the letters that we have learnt with your child first, encouraging them to recite the formation rhymes as they write them. Then visit phonicsplay.co.uk and login with the username ThythornEYFS and the password thythorn. Click on Phase 2, Picnic on Pluto and select any known sounds. The objective of the game is to read the words and sort them in to real (Bob) words and fake (Obb) words.
Sound out the following words to your child and get them to blend the sounds together. It may be beneficial to repeat it a few times.
Once your child has blended the words, repeat the activity and get them to copy your segmenting of the words so that they are learning to sound them out.
Ask your child to write the following words independently, sounding them out first.
Ask your child to write the above words and then the following sentences.
