Good morning everybody. I hope that you had a lovely weekend-its been like all 4 seasons in one hasn’t it? Did you see the hail stone?
Phonics: First go through your phoneme flashcards, letter names with their sounds and current reading words.
Phoneme revision: Mrs Carrs/Mrs Brennan’s:
Play the Pirate game on Phonics Play-choose Phase 5 and then click on the ‘ay’ tile
Mrs Balmer’s/Miss Hathaway’s: Play the Pirate game on Phonics Play-choose Phase 4 and then click on the ‘ccv and ccvc words’, ‘set 1-7’
Revision: Choose the ‘revise all Phase 3’ tile in the Phase 3 section of the pirate game.
Mrs Balmer’s/Miss Hathaway’s group:
This week we will be working on the ‘r’ family adjacent consonants or ‘clusters’: gr, br, cr, dr, fr, pr and tr. I have attached a ‘gr’ booklet for you to complete or as an activity guide. Remember the two sounds sit closely together in a word and so we say it as ‘grrrrrrrr’ like a growl rather than as two separate sounds ‘g’ ‘r’.
Mrs Carr’s/Mrs Brennan’s group:
This week I thought that we could look at ‘ea’ which is a different way of spelling the ‘ee’ sound. This can be seen at the beginning and middle and end of words. ‘ee’ is only seen in a few words at the end: bee, tree, see but often in the middle. I have attached a sheet for you to rea, match and spell some words. Can you think of any more any draw pictures to match?
Revision phonics for if you’re not quite ready for Phase 4: I have attached some sentence reading sheets-these range in difficulty-please choose one for today.
Can you believe we are up to number 20? Please watch Numberblocks-20-see the link below.
Mrs Balmer’s/Miss Hathaway’s group : I have included a link to a game to help you to revise your number recognition to 20, then please try the attached sheet for number 20 formation.
Mrs Carr’s/Mrs Brennan’s group: Please find attached the number 20 formation sheet.
Then I would like you to explore the number 20-this is a good one for grouping-how many different groups of the same size can you make? Can you halve this number? What two numbers double to make this number? Is it odd or even? How many groups of ten does it have? How many different ways can you think of to make 20? Can you write any take-away calculations?
Have fun with your number explorations.
I hope that you are all safe and well, take care, Mrs Balmer.
