Week 4 is here! Let’s see what goodies we have in store for your this week.
Schools use different systems for learning to read. Here on Parent’s Homework Hub, we are following the Letters and Sounds system. These activities and resources can be used with your child whichever system they use but may be taught in a different order.
Which letters and sounds are we learning this week?
Our 4 letters for this week are CK (our first digraph – 2 letter sound), E, U, R.
Your child will need to learn the letter names like you say them when saying the alphabet (A, B, C) as well as the letter sounds.
They will likely be presented with both the UPPERCASE (capitals) and lowercase (not capitals). When writing, they may focus on the lowercase formation, to begin with.
Which high-frequency words are we learning this week?
Our common words are ‘get’, ‘up’, and ‘mum’. Our tricky words (not phonetic words) are ‘the’ and ‘to’.
Take a look at our High-Frequency Word activities for some ideas.
What can we do with this week’s sounds?
What words can I create?
Don’t forget to mix this week’s letters with those letters from previous weeks. That way, you can keep practising them and you can create a wider range of words. For ideas on the words you can create with the letters we’ve learned so far, please look at our word lists.
