General Information  

 

  

Parent Planners 

Each term, before the children embark on their learning in a new topic, we send home a Parent Topic Planner explaining for parents and carers the learning opportunities across the curriculum that each child will receive. Teachers select and suggest useful websites and places to visit which will enhance and prepare the child for the topic they are about to start. There are also useful dates and a bank of topic words that families may choose to talk through with their children.

Which activity/game will you choose?

Parents: Ditties sheet – we use ditties in phonics. They are very short stories which help children as they begin to read. Ideally, we read a ditty 3 times. First time, the children tend to use their Fred talk to sound out the words. Second time, Fred in their head (sound out in their head and just read the word aloud). This helps to read with more fluency. Third time, try to add expression. These are very short ones so you may get through a couple a day.

Join Geraldine to learn/refresh our sounds. Can you be like Geraldine and find things around your house starting with the given sound? Can you make a list of the items you find? Remember to use your Fred talk! Challenge yourself to write a sentence (I found a chair in the kitchen/I found an apple in the fruit bowl.)

Parents: use the list of sounds from parents evening to check whether the sounds are set 1 or 2

Information for parents 

https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/reading-schemes-oxford-levels/read-write-inc-phonics-guide/

Parents: This website has lots of useful information, resources and guidance. Remember you can turn phonics into a game by playing I-spy, hangman (we play this differently at school – “Guess my word” by drawing a flower), Fred’s fridge (use Fred talk to say items you might find in a fridge – j-a-m, m-i-l-k, b-u-tt-er, e-g-g-s. You could adapt this game to something else – Fred’s picnic, toy box, holiday)

Can you show you mum/dad how good you are at phonics? Remember my turn, your turn.

Parents: This is a great opportunity for your child to continue receiving phonics lessons that are appropriate to their current stage. These videos reflect how we teach phonics at school so your child will be familiar with the structure.
