Week beginning 1st June

This weeks letters and sounds


This week in school we will be exploring oral blending as well as rhyme. We are going to take turns playing games that help us practice our listening skill's. We love using our robot voice to help the children hear the sounds that make up words.

This week we are going to have another look at exploring different groups. First it's important to think about what the word group means. A good way to do this is to explore how objects can be grouped in different ways. You can do this with toys, coins, counters or even foods and household objects for example you could help mum or dad match socks or sort the fruit bowl. You might categorise the fruits/socks/toys by size, shape or color, remember to talk about how they groups may change but the total remains the same. Why not practice counting to 20 and see how big you can make each group? When you are really confident making different groups explore the concept of equal by making groups of the same number, can you add these together or double them?
