Some games that the children enjoy playing are available on :
We are starting to learn sounds in phonics...starting with s, a, t, p, i, n.
Reading books at home or visiting your local library are great for helping your child to develop a love for reading. Children can be spotting sounds in their environment, in comics/ magazines or in both fiction and non-fiction books!
Oxford Owl website offers free membership and you can spot these sounds in the stories online.
We are focussing mainly on:
- counting up to 10, saying one number names for each object.
- Recognising numbers to 10 and ordering them correctly
- Finding one more and one less.
- Making patterns with shapes and pictures
Some online games can be found on: www.topmarks.co.uk.
Lots of opportunities practise these skills through practical real life experiences would be fantastic.
