Just one writing job this week.
Help your child to look at the picture below and talk about what they can see.
Help them come up with three sentences to write about the picture. You could do one sentence a day as writing is hard work when the children first start.
1. Choose a simple sentence (i.e. The parrot is red. The river is long. The leaves are green.)
2. Get your child to repeat their chosen sentence a few times to help them remember.
3. Draw a line for each word.
4. Write one word at a time on each line, helping your child to segment the word into sounds. They might not get all the sounds, they just write the sounds they can hear. Please help them spell tricky words I to no go and the correctly as they know these. At this point we wouldn't expect correct spellings for every word, so 'The parrot is red.' may end up as 'the parot is red' or 'The river is long.' could be 'The rivr is long'. You can use the grapheme cards we sent home if they are unsure of how a sound is written. Do not worry about capital letters at the start but please help them to put a full stop at the end as we have been doing this at school.
