These are words that we can not 'sound out' (Fred Talk) in the way we would 'sound out' green word cards in Read, Write, Inc. These words have to be learnt by sight.
This is what the children use in the classroom to support them with their writing. When saying the sounds they can hear in words, they look for the sound on the mat before writing it down.
In Read, Write, Inc 'special friends' are a pair of letters that make a sound.
The White Rose Maths Early Years scheme of work uses some 'Number Blocks' videos to explain ideas and mathematical thinking. This link will take you to various 'Number Blocks' videos on YouTube.

What a term of firsts we have had! First day at school, first school dinner, first time in the 'big yard' and reading our first words to name a few! We are really proud of how well the children have settled into Reception and school life.
The children enjoyed finding out about their class mates and themselves during our topic 'Who Am I?' The children were amazed with our 'magic oven' that turned their play dough gingerbread men into real gingerbread men! During our topic 'What Happened Long Long Ago?' we discovered why we have fireworks on bonfire night, made poppy artwork for Remembrance Day, learnt what a ball is (the dancing type) during our work on the story of Cinderella and have found out what happened long ago in the Christmas Story. More recently the children have had great fun finding our elf every morning. His name is Chocolate. The children suggested names and then they voted for their favourite. We are now super excited for our Christmas party and other Christmas treats!
Mrs Lee and I (Mrs Getlevog) wish all of our children and their families a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year!
