Happy Half Term!
Our lion fun!
Just a few reminders...
- Please help your child to become confident reciting the 'Elephants' text map that we sent home on Tuesday. As we explained in the parent meeting at the beginning of term, children need to be able to 'say a sentence' before they can write it, so learning the text orally will support their writing development in school.
- Keep practising reading the common exception words. We will be assessing these over the next few weeks. If you practise writing any of these words, remember to use cursive letter formation.
- Keep reading the reading books daily to develop fluency and sign the reading records. Please ensure the books are in book bags everyday as we do read the books in school too.
- Keep practising quick recall of addition and subtraction bonds up to 10 (Y1), and 20 (Y2) as well as having fun with Maths on Numbots.

Please keep encourage your child to practise correct letter formation at home when they are writing. We would recommend that lined paper is always used as we teach children to start all lower case letter on the line and 'whoosh up'. We have attached a cursive letter formation sheet below if needed.
