Good morning, I hope that you have had a lovely week so far.
First go through your phoneme flashcards, letter names with their sounds and current reading words.
Phoneme revision: Have a go at the ‘Space Race game’ on Phonics play
Mrs Balmer’s/Miss Hathaway’s group: Choose Phase 3
Mrs Carr’s/Mrs Brennan’s group: Choose Phase 4
Mrs Balmer’s/Miss Hathaway’s group: Let’s finish our ‘r blends’ booklet. As yesterday, can you add two more pages to your booklet? One page of pictures that start with ‘dr’ and one page of pictures for ‘fr’. You could write a label under each picture.
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. If you want you could always write some sentences to go with your pictures and words, e.g. I saw a brown and green frog. If you wanted to you could do one page or add another page for ‘pr’
dr: drip, drill, dr/ fr: frog, froth/ pr: pram, prod
Mrs Carr’s/Mrs Brennan’s group: I have attached a Phase 4 game for you to play today to recap blending Phase 4 words-to increase your confidence and fluency when meeting these words.
Alternative Phonics if you don’t feel ready for Phase 4:
Please play the ‘read and race’ game for ‘qu, sh, ch, th, ng’ that is available on the home learning page on the school website. There is also a c.v.c booklet to revise reading and spelling three letter words.
Shape, Space and Measure:
Everyone: Today I have attached a 2D shape activity. The pictures use lolly sticks to make different 2D shapes including square, rectangle, triangle, pentagon, hexagon, octagon and rhombus. I’m not sure that you will have lolly pop sticks but you could use felt tips of the same length or straws. How many will you need to make a particular shape? Please could you discuss the shape names (just an introduction to these new shapes-they don’t need to learn the names yet) and also count the sides and the vertices (points/corners).
As always, have fun and take care, Mrs Balmer.
