A message for your adults at home…

Home reading activity

 

As you know, due to government guidance we are not able to send core reading books home. If you are unable to purchase reading books for your child, please do let me know and we will support you. Each week, a child from Sequoia Class is chosen to take a story book home to keep! 

 

Home tasks

In numeracy we have been comparing lengths of different objects. Can you find 4 items around the house that are longer than a pencil and shorter than a fork?

 

 Please practise reading the black cat sounds on the left. This will help you in your reading and writing.

 

 

Can you put these tricky words into sentences?

 

some, they, the, my and put
