Week 4 Other Activities
Continue to hear your child read everyday and also read stories to them. Talk about books, make predictions, create alternative endings or discuss your favourite bits. Enjoy both fiction and non-fiction books and talk about the differences.

If you need some guidance on which book level is most suitable for your child, please take a look at the table explaining book levels on the link below.
Repetition of phonics is key to your child's consolidation of this important reading skill. You can access daily phonics lessons, like the ones we do in school, on the Ruth Miskin channel on YouTube. Lessons are uploaded at different times in the morning depending on the set of letters being focused on. Year 1 will mostly be focusing on Set 2 and Set 3 sounds. Please see the documents at the bottom of this page for more information on lesson levels and upload times, as well as a list of the sounds in each set. You can also access Storytime and Poem time on this channel too. If you can think of your own practical and fun ways of teaching phonics, that's great too!
Use the 'look, say, cover, write, check' method to help your child practise spelling their Year 1 common exception words (see list on the class page). Choose 5-10 words a day. As an additional challenge, can your child use the words in a written sentence using cursive handwriting?
