Curriculum and Learning in Tulips Class
HOW TO HELP AND SUPPORT YOUR CHILD
We ask Parents to read 2-3 pages with children each evening and to ask questions to check understanding of what has been read too.
Tulips have individual spelling homework each week depending on whether they are learning Rainbow, Planet or Continent group spellings. Our spelling tests take place on Fridays and Parents are then informed by a personal dojo message which subgroup to learn next. Children are given the opportunity to achieve a special badge once each group of spellings have been completed.
On Fridays a phonics sheet is sent out outlining the sounds and tricky words in which we have learnt that week. Children are to read all words given and then to choose one word from each sound column to practise writing or to even write a sentence about. This is to then be handed on the following Friday.
One piece of maths homework is sent out each Friday, this is to consolidate the learning which has taken place throughout the week. Children are to return this to school by Monday.
Phonics is a method of teaching reading and writing by developing the learners’ phonemic awareness. The goal of phonics is to enable beginning readers to decode new written words by sounding them out, or in phonics terms, blending the sound-spelling patterns.
It is important that children are supported with their phonics at home. We recommend spending 5 – 10 minutes each day working together on the different sounds.
