The Enormous Turnip

This term children have been settling into school and learning our routines. They have started to learn letter sounds in phonics.  We find a monster in the monster sound trap each day then use Teach Your Monster to Read to help us learn the sound and use actions to help us remember it. The monsters are then displayed on a jungle vine in the classroom. Children are beginning to use the sounds that they have learnt in the environment and are beginning to make their own words. Children have been learning the story of The Enormous Turnip and activities have been based around harvest and seasonal changes. They have learnt to retell the story with actions.

Phonics At Home

As part of your home learning your child will be taking part in phonic activities set by their teacher. Many of you may have used Oxford Owl as it gives levelled reading books. The link below will also give you a video to show you how to make the sounds in a way that will help your child with reading and writing. The sounds are taught in a particular order in phases which develop during Reception and KS1. If you are unsure which phase your child is working on at the moment then please contact your child’s class teacher.

You don’t need to print out lots of flash cards or letters, just make your own or ask older brothers and sisters to help you.
There are lots of fun activities that you can do indoors and in the garden, hiding sounds so that your child can go on a treasure hunt, having competitions to see how many words you can make with a sound your child finds tricky or being sound detectives on your daily walk. Have fun together!
