Daily Phonics lesson:
It is great that you are keeping going with the Daily Phonics lesson. It is so important that you don't forget the 45 phonemes that you have learnt and that you remember all the Phase 2, 3 and 5 Tricky Words. 

Please remember that if you feel that your child needs more practise at Phase 4 please revisit our previous lessons and also use your child's Home Learning Book to consolidate prior learning .

 

Remember - Practise makes Better!!

1. What Letter Is It? | Random Order |

In this letter sound song Jack Hartmann gives the letter sound and then students are asked to name the letter that makes the sound. This version is in random order. A fun way to learn phonemic awareness and letter sounds. And remember - keep exercising.

2.  Today we will recap phonemes digraphs/trigraphs with Phonics play -

Phase 4/5  Tricky Words 

https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/5/tricky-word-trucks  Try spelling them too!

3.   Today's sound is 'ou'  says 'ow'. Same sound, different letters. Let's see what Kit and Sam are doing today.

Remember that your child will not know all the words so support them where they need it. You can also just read the story together.

4.   You say this sentence, sound out each word and your child writes it down. Watch out for the tricky words -                                                           You  can  shout  loud  with  your  mouth.

 

Remember  - Start your sentence with a capital letter.

     Leave finger spaces.        

End your sentence with a full stop.

      Read your sentence

 

           Well done!  yes

 

Mathematics

Count to 100 by 1s | Jack Hartmann

                        First to twenty!
You need:
o Two sets of number cards – just make your own with some paper. 
o A timer – one on a mobile phone will do as long as you can see the seconds and minutes.

(You could just have one set of cards and the adult uses the stopwatch.)
How to play
o Each of you has a set of number cards 1 to 20.
o Shuffle the cards. Then spread them out face down.
o Set the timer.
o When you press ‘start’, each of you must turn over your cards and arrange them in      a line, 1 to 20.
o Stop the clock when the first person finishes!
o Check each other’s lines. Are the numbers in the right order?
o Practise doing this several times. What is your fastest time?
Now try the same activity but this time you have to lay out the numbers backwards, from 20 down to 1. This is surprisingly harder!
What is your fastest time laying them counting backwards?
Challenge: 
Lay the cards in two lines, one with odd numbers and one with even numbers.

 

 

                               Handwriting

Correct letter formation is so important.

When your child goes to Year 1 they will learn cursive writing where the letters all start from the line.  If letter formation is not correct now this will be tricky to do. So our mission is to break any bad habits before we get to Year 1. 

Practise, practise and more practise is the only way!

We also want to try and make our letters sit on the line as well!

There are 4 group types of letters - curly caterpillar letters  (which always start like a curly 'c'), long ladder letters (which are tall and straight) , one armed robot letters (which bounce up off the line) and zig-zag letters (which are made of straight and diagonal lines).

This BBC Bitesize program shows all four types in a fun way!

I would love to see your efforts on Tapestry!
