Home learning in Foundation

Homework in Foundation will be sent home on a Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday. This term homework will mainly consist of letter recognition, letter formation practise and green words.

Homework will be sent home in a folder, which will contain a speed sounds book, where you can see which sounds we have looked at in class. Please ask your child to say the sound on the right hand side page. If they can't then turn the page to remind them of the picture prompt and read the letter rhyme to them. You might find it helpful to watch this Read Write Inc video to help with letter pronunciation.                

 

 Please also practise writing the sounds with your child. When writing it is really important to remember that every letter starts with the phrase ‘ready to start’. You could practise on the worksheets provided or be creative and try writing in flour on a kitchen worktop or on a steamy bathroom window! Please take photos of any formation practise that you are really impressed with and upload on Tapestry.

You could also practise oral blending with your child. This is where you say the sounds of a word and your child has to blend the sounds together to say the word. For example, “time for b-e-d”

Happy homeworking!
