This week the children have been learning to read words with an 's' on the end to create a plural. The children have learned that sometimes the plural 's' sounds as they expect eg cats, nuts, ships, ducks but sometimes it creates a /z/ sound eg dogs, rings, shells.
Words to practise reading:
Can your child identify whether the plural s makes a /s/ or a /z/ sound?
Words to practise spelling:
New Tricky Words:
In all our new tricky words this week, the 'e' makes an /ee/ sound instead of an /e.
Home Learning Challenge
This week it would be great if you could continue to practise learning the tricky words and improve recall. Play outside with your child and have fun with a game called 'Run to it!'. Display the tricky words: me be we on separate pieces of paper around the garden/park and go through each word with your child, recapping the tricky part. Stand in the middle of the space with your child and call out one of the tricky words for your child to run to then repeat with the other words. Continue playing, changing the order that you say the words. To make it more challenging, you could add more tricky words that were learned in previous weeks to the game.
