  1. Practise writing words with ay in them - for example: start, star, park, car, farm, alarm, bar, part, hard, sharp…
  2. Sound out each word for example: s-t-ar-t
  3. Use your fingers to show how many sounds there are in a word or example s-t-ar-t will show 4 fingers

(please note there maybe less sounds than number of letters)

  1. Ask your child how many letters in the word – for example start has 5 letters
  2. Ask your child how many sounds in the word – for example s-t-ar-t has 4 sounds

'or' Words | Blending Phonics Phase 3

Numbers

  • Count 0-30 - forwards and backwards
  • Practising writing the numbers 0-30 correctly
  • Practise putting numbers in order
    Estimating – taking a good guess
    Parents can you put a random amount of objects (ranging from 1-20) in front of your child – ask them to estimate how many objects there are.
    Tell your child is it not about getting the exact answer but a good guess that is close to the amount.
    Children can take a guess and write down the amount they think and then count the objects to see how close or how far away their estimate is.
     
    Friday task:
    addition: adding, find to total, plus +
    Give your child two amounts (using objects, counters, pasta, lego, pictures anything you have available at home) and ask them to add them together and write the number sentence.
    Focusing on these questions:
    1 + 1
    2+2
    3+3
    4+ 4
    5+5
    1 + 2
    1 + 3
    1 + 4
    2 + 3

Friday task:

  2. Use three of the same containers e.g. a cup. Parents can you supervise your child using water in your bath/sink/plastic box.
  3. Pour different amounts of liquid into your containers.
  4. Use the key words to describe them. Are your containers empty, nearly empty, half full, nearly full or full? Can you order your containers by capacity? E.g. from least to most liquid.
     
    Key questions: How would you describe the containers capacity? Which container has more/less liquid in? Which container has more/less space in it? How do you know?
