At the back of your child's hardback sounds book, you will find the first three "tricky words" pasted in - I, the, he. Tricky words cannot be sounded out or spelled correctly by listening for the sounds in them. They need to be learned from memory. Games such as pairs, bingo, flashcards etc are useful in helping children to remember them. Probably the simplest and most efficient way is encouraging children to identify them in story books - finding them in the title or throughout the book.
Reading and writing the tricky words is our next step towards learning to read books
Our writing has just made a giant leap! We have started writing sentences. Have a look at what we have been getting up to. (Here are also a few pictures of things we constructed in our morning activities that we wanted to show - 'Ms Finnegan... can we put this on the website please?')
I have given out times for our Parent Teacher Meetings which will take place next week. l hope the time suits everyone. Each meeting will take approx 10 mins. Looking forward to meeting you all then,
