How to pronounce phonemes (letter sounds) correctly.

Reading at home

The children are enjoying learning to read in school and taking a reading book and library book home each week. A few parents have asked for advice when hearing their child read at home. This short video is very useful and gives some good tips about how to hear your child read. Please watch it and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask a member of our team

Helping your child to read at home

Sing our tricky word song with us!

We are learning to read tricky words in class and we love singing these songs to help us learn the words.

We can't sound out tricky words as they wouldn't make sense...this is why they are very tricky! In class we are learning; the, I, go, no, into, to, he, we, she and be. 

Please help us at home to recognise these words by sight. There might be tricky words in our reading books that we can point out, or even in our favourite story books at home.

Christmas Family Fun Session 2017

We had a great time doing lots of physical activities at our Family Fun "Fitness" session! 2018

Jolly Phonics

Amanda Ellis (amanda) on: Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

Over the last four weeks we have been busy in our daily Phonics lessons learning the sounds that letters make.

We are very proud of the children for the enthusiasm they show in Phonics lessons and their "can do attitude".

So far they have learnt the following phonemes (sounds letters make) and the graphemes (how the letters look and are written):

s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r.Image result for phase 2 phonics

We will learn the rest of the Phase 2 letter sounds by the half term holiday.

We have listened to and learnt the Jolly Phonics songs on YouTube and how we say the sounds correctly. We have also spoke about words that have these sounds in and learnt to write the letters in our writing book. Some of the letters are very difficult to write so we write them on each other's backs with our "Peter Pointer" finger, on the smart board and in the tray of coloured sand before we write them in our writing books.

We have also been learning to read tricky words in class, and have learnt the words; I, into, to, the. Tricky words are words that can't be sounded out, we have to 'train our brain' to recognise these words by sight. We love singing the Tricky Word song to help us learn these words, just search 'Tricky Word song phase 2' on YouTube. You can also find the Tricky Word song on our class page on the school website as well as tips on how to help with reading at home.

Thank you for all your support with your child's home learning, we love seeing their posts on Tapestry.

Each week they are coming on leaps and bounds...we are very impressed!

We are learning to read!

Amanda Ellis (amanda) on: Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

This week the children were given their first reading book/flashcards to bring home. We were so proud of their "can do attitude" and how much enthusiasm they showed for reading their first book.

We will hear the children read individually at least once a week and books will be swapped once a week. We will also be checking how many letter sounds and tricky words the children know on the Phase 2 sound mat stapled to the inside of their Reading record.

When parents write a brief comment in the reading record children get a team point so please let us know if your child has read at home. We recommend that you listen to your child read their book 4 times a week to improve their confidence and accuracy with sounding out and blending words at this stage.

Please make sure your child's reading book and reading record is kept inside their new Home Learning Zippy bag and bring it to school EVERY DAY in case it is their turn to read. You can buy your child a blue book bag at the school office if they wish to have also have a book bag.

Please see the newsletters in your child's book bag or on our class page (School website) for more information. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask us.

Class reward achieved, it's time for a D I S CO!

Amanda Ellis (amanda) on: Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

Green and Red Butterflies have all worked very hard this half term to meet their class target which was to listen at carpet time. During the register, Phonics, Maths and English whole class activities they have earned a Pom Pom for listening carefully to us and each other.

We are very proud of them for filling their Pom Pom jar and bowl and earning their reward of a class disco. The children chose the songs for the disco and had lots of fun dancing and singing with their friends. At the end they were given an extra treat of a biscuit.

Number Detectives!

Amanda Ellis (amanda) on: Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

This week we have had lots of fun being Number Detectives and learning all about the number 3. 

The children have learnt to represent the number 3 in different ways and with lots of different objects, large and small, long and thin.

They have learnt to add to find the total 3 and some children thought of the idea to subtract (take away) from a larger number until they got to number 3!

Next we the fun continues when we learn all about number 4!
