LITERACY

 

READING

  • Read your word cards and word books.
  • Ask an adult to read one of your favourite story books. Continue to focus on recognising the difference between a letter, a word and a sentence plus recognising the difference between a line of writing and a sentence. Can you find any words in your story book that begins with our new sound ‘r’? Can you retell your story from start to finish in your own words?  
  • Listen to the story ‘Ridiculous’. (See link below). This links to our new WAU topic on ‘Winter’ and our PDMU.
