Welcome Back Paddington’s

I hope you are eager to start Term 5

Our Topic work will be linked to the Victorian Times

 

 

Dear Parents I would like to support you and your child’s home schooling.

And in doing so I will give you ways to help you teach their Writing, Reading and Phonics.

 

I will upload some videos but keeping them practical so your children can pretend to be at school with me!  Everything we do will focus on improving our vocabulary and meaning of words.

 

I also, thought it would be fun to learn Makaton signing together-Starting with Greetings like:

Hello and how are you?

 

 

 

Reading

The key to improving our language is to build our vocabulary!

 

One of the best ways to do this. is to read, but the best way for us is to do this, is to listen to audio books.

Here we don’t have to stop and try and workout what the words say.  This in turn helps us understand what the book is about.  Also, we can hear how to say/ pronounce words we might not have heard before.

Or parents can give support by reading the book at the same time as your child, then you become the model and this time they can see and hear the word.

But saying all this, it is important that you listen to your child read to you and regularly.

To support their meaning of the book, it is important that you ask questions about it, so you know they have understood the story-this is vital!

Some books do have questions at the back of the book.

Just remember: What, Where, How, Who, Why

 

Writing

When writing encourage your child to write freely, meaning don’t worry about their mistakes, wait until they have finished.

When they have finished help them re-read what they have written and fix 2/3 mistakes.  Maybe put the work on your fridge.

When supporting your child’s writing help make a word mat –this is piece of paper with Key words on. This will help them remember what they would like to write and support their spellings.

Practice Vocabulary in Fun Ways!

Draw images of the words

Play Charades

Write a little story

Write the new word on paper and post it through the letter box

Just have fun

 

 

Spellings

The best way to learn spellings is to recognise the patterns-how the word is written

 

 

Phonics

Phonics helps us to hear and say the sounds  to build the word.  For us this is a skill we need to just practice each day.

Go to the link:  google www.gov.uk-education -resources

Here go to English then Phonics –I would start by looking at Read Write Inc –It’s very repetitive

Try it - if your child doesn’t like it, try another scheme.

Practice Rhyming

Rhyming helps phonological awareness –rhyming draws attention to the different sounds.

The good thing about singing rhyming songs you can do them anywhere and it didn’t take up time.

Google: School Radio nursery rhymes, you are never too old to sing a nursery rhyme.

Play games

Tell me all the words you know rhyme with ‘hat’

Close your eyes and I am going to say 2 words –put your hand up if they rhyme

Listen to 3 words which one doesn’t rhyme

 

Practice Syllable Division

By helping your child break up the word will help them read and spell.

This can be done by clapping out the syllables in the word-start with their names.

Clap out days of the week and months of the year and fun words like:

Cin-der-el-la

Or another way to support syllables is to: ‘chin drop’

This helps your child feel the syllables

Place your hand under the chin.  Now say the word and count how many times your chin drops.

 

These are just a few ideas-come back next week and I will add other ways to help your child!
