Back to School!
Tricky Words: Most of the children are flying with their tricky words so I will be including a new green set in some of the homework packs from next week.
Word Boxes: I am thrilled to see such improvement with the blending. It is great to see them using smooth, clear blending with precise pronunciation of their letter sounds. I have started to put in two word boxes each time so you can continue to practise at a steady pace. I try to give each child the time they need to hear them so it may take time to get to everyone.
Writing Workbooks: Well done to the children who have been practicing their writing. Please make sure you follow the following instructions when conpleteing the workbooks.
- Only complete assigned letters (2 each week).
- Please use pencil only.
- Please supervise your child and make sure they are using correct formation every time. Practicing incorrect formation will only hinder your child's progress. Rub out any mistakes and have your child try again.

Maths - It's All About The Money!
We have been learning about these little copper coins. We discussed what is different about them (size, numbers). It is interesting to note that when the children were asked which of these amounts would buy me more in a shop, everyone have their reasons for picking one or the other. The commons misconceptions where that the 5c coin would buy more because it is a bigger coin or the five 1c coins would buy more because there are more coins. Interesting. Try to take any opportunity to talk about money when visiting the shops and maybe give the children a chance to hand the money to the shop keeper and wait for the change.
