Good morning Reception, I hope that you enjoyed your activities yesterday.
Phonics: Please 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 ‘ea’ tile
Mrs Balmer’s/Miss Hathaway’s: Have another go at playing the Pirate game on Phonics Play-choose Phase 4 and then click on the ‘ccv and ccvc words’, ‘set 1-7’
Mrs Balmer’s/Miss Hathaway’s group: This week we will be continuing to work on the ‘r’ family adjacent consonants or ‘clusters’: gr, br, cr, dr, fr, pr and tr. Can you add two more pages to your booklet that you completed yesterday? Can you make a page of pictures that start with ‘br’? Can you write what your pictures are underneath? Then try to do the same for ‘cr’. Parents-you may need to offer up some suggestions that your child can draw and write, here are some if you are stuck for ideas:
Br: brown, brick, bread, broom
Cr: cream, cry, crown, cracker
Don’t forget that your child may write phonetically so they may spell ‘cry’ as ‘crigh’ etc.
Mrs Carr’s/Mrs Brennan’s group:
We will continue to look at ea/ee today. I have attached a sheet similar to one from last week for word spelling and then sentence writing.
I have included a link to a 2D shape game for you to have a little fun. I often find in school that children easily forget the names of the common 2D shapes and mix up rectangle/triangle.
It was world ocean’s day yesterday and our theme continues to be the sea. Today I would like you to create a picture of the sea but can you do it using 2D shapes? You can either draw your picture by drawing around shapes, e.g. a cup for a circle or you could do a collage by drawing around shapes, cutting them out and sticking them on. In your picture you could have different fish and add a treasure chest made of rectangles or you could do rectangular green strips and stick these on in a wiggly way to make sea-weed. Extension-could you add any new 2D shapes? Have fun.
Take care, Mrs Balmer.
