Good Morning Year 1



Complete ‘phonics flashcards speed trial’ and ‘tricky word trucks’ on the Phonics Play website. Play ‘Acorn Adventures’. Remember there are lots of activities on Phonics Play and Classroom Secrets Kids for you to have a go at, you don’t need to restrict yourself to our suggestions if you want to do a bit extra.

Can you remember what the vowels are? Have another listen to the vowel bat song -

Yesterday you thought about words that end in a ‘j’ sound that is spelt ‘-dge’. Can you remember what the rule is for using ‘-dge’? Today we want you to think about words that end with a ‘j’ sound that is spelt ‘-ge’.

If the ‘j’ sound comes after a long vowel sound we would use ‘-ge’. For example in the word page – the vowel is a and it makes a long sound (A) rather than a short sound (a).

Practice reading and writing the following words that contain -ge: rage, page, wage, stage, huge. Remember to discuss the meaning of any unfamiliar words. Now can you think of a sentence that contains at least 2 of these -ge words?



Today it's VIPERS (vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval, sequencing). I wonder if your grown ups remember what all those words mean?  Please see the attached text and questions. 



Warm-up =

Friday again which means it’s time for your Beat That quiz – See if you can beat last week’s score! Remember, if you want to challenge yourself even more, you could have a go at the year 2 Beat That quiz which is under their section of the website.

Main Activity =

This is our last day focusing on time before we move onto a different topic after half term. We have set you some challenge questions to complete today – try to do these independently if you can (that includes trying to read and understand the questions yourself). Go through the PowerPoint first to warm your brains up then there are 2 challenge sheets, just complete what you can. On each worksheet, the questions go in order from least to most challenging.

Have a lovely week off!

Miss C, Mrs P and Mrs C.
