Well done everyone - we can see that Nessy is having such a fantastic impact on children's progress! You are all whizzing through the games which have individualised reading and spelling targets to support your child in their reading, comprehension and spelling skills in a fantastic and fun way. A reminder - please do not support your child in answering questions as the data can helps us support your child in school. Your Year one teachers recommend continuing your two/three 15 minute sessions of Nessy throughout Year One.

Next Steps

Remember you can check all of your child's next steps in learning for each area on Early Essence by pressing the + button under each subject area on your child's progress graph. As always please remember that we must see your child completing a step independently without adult support :)

 

Numeracy

Please remember to gain their Early Learning Goal in Numeracy your child needs to be  independently: Counting reliably with numbers from 1 to 20.

Placing numbers in order and be able to say which number is one more and one less than a given number.

They also need to be adding and subtracting two single digit numbers (e.g. 7 + 8, 6 + 5, 7 - 5, 9 - 3) and count on and back to find the answer.

They also need to be able to solve problems involving doubling, halving and sharing.

If your child is doing this independently, next work on increasing number value and solving problems which involve combining groups of 2, 5 or 10, or sharing into equal groups. Also work on estimating quantities and recording answers using a number sentence (21 + 6 = 27).

 

 

Phonics 

 

Please remember to gain their Early Learning Goal in Writing your child needs to be writing independently using words which are phonetically plausible and using some words which are spelt correctly including tricky words.

 

If your child is doing this independently, next work on encouraging and creating opportunities for your child to write in a range of forms e.g. letters, invitations, greeting cards, short stories, menus, shopping lists, instructions maybe even creating their own book! We will be looking for children writing neatly (controlling their letter size) at length on lined paper :)
