Use the video to explore the words with these sounds in.
Your child might think of other words with the same sound but with a different sound
- reinforce that there are other spellings that they will learn in Year 1.
Then try writing these sentences (one each day):
H er v oi c e i s l ou d to s p ea k to the c l a ss.
20 20 h a s b ee n a n o d d y ear so f ar.
My h air i s l o n g n ow.
He i s h igh u p the l a dd er.
Tricky words - say the letters not the sounds
Sound out each words and then say the word - asking your child to try and write it.
Ask them to draw a picture to go with.
Reinforce the use of a capital letter at the beginning and a full stop at the end of the sentence.
Use the Hit the Button games to practice Number Bonds and Doubling (as appropriate).
Use the ladybirds, butterflies and bees to help you practice doubling and halving. (See below)
If you cannot print the sheet try drawing the character and using buttons or similar objects to create the patterns
for the your child to double or half (share into two equal parts).
