Can you say the months of the year?

How many months in a year?

How many days in a week?

What day is it?

Practise saying the sounds everyday with your child

These split sounds are hard to remember, so please revise these sounds.

Make a list of words under each sound



Handwriting – practise writing each letter of the alphabet.

It is so important that children form the letters correctly.
