St Piran Class newsletter 18th November

This week we have started our Instructions learning. We practised writing instructions for making a sandwich. In our maths we have been completing number sequences and missing number activities.


This week in Phonics we have learnt the ‘ur’, ‘er’ and ‘igh’ phonemes. Next week we will be learning ‘ay’, ‘ou’, and ‘ie’. If you have spare time practise segmenting words with these phonemes in with your child.

Home Learning

The children’s home learning this week is to write a set of instructions for drawing a dog. For extra home learning this week follow a recipe, or follow the instructions in a board game or write your own set of instructions for a model you have made.

Support tips:

  • Talk through the process in the pictures.
  • Encourage your child to sound out the words that they want to wri Don’t worry if this means the word is spelt incorrectly.
  • If your child finds writing a challenge you could always take it in turns to write down their ideas.
  • Encourage your child to read what they have wri
  • Use bossy language.
  • Don’t forget to have a go at drawing the dog too.
