Monday 11th May

Good morning everyone! Hope you are all well!

 

I hope that you enjoyed your VE day celebrations and the Bank Holiday weekend. My family certainly enjoyed the eggless sponge cake that I made using tea as one of the ingredients! And we enjoyed listening to the 40s music that our elderly neighbour played in the afternoon. Remember to please post any photos of your VE day celebrations on Tapestry and you can also send them to our website address. Miss Anderson will then put them into our school VE day celebrations folder. Look out for me with my cake!

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. Practise and keep fit alphabet wtih Jack Hartmann.

This letter sound song is a fun way of exercising your body and your brain to the letter sounds. Say the letters, the letter sound and a word that begins wit...

2.   Today we will recap words with digraphs and trigraphs. Play the Challenge game - Write the word on a piece of paper and put it face down on the table. Take it in turns to choose a word. If you can read the word you keep it. The winner has the most words.

 

wait,  feet,  sight,  toad,  root,  wood,  hard,  cork,  curl,  cow,  tinfoil,  tear,  hair,  sure,  boxer, 

 

 

3.   Today's new sound is 'u-e' says 'yoo'. This is what we call a split digraph. Click  on the following link to look at the 'a-e' sound .-

Now  play this sort 'oo',  'u-e' and 'ew' game.  (note - 'ew' also says 'oo')

 4.   You say this sentence, sound out each word and your child writes it down. Watch out for the tricky words -                                                             Luke  had  a  big  red  cube  on  the  computer.

 

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 

I can see and say the number in a set without counting!

 

Subitize Rock (soo-bi-tize) | Math Song for Kids | Jack Hartmann

Subitize to 10. Subitize is the ability to tell the number of objects in a set, quickly, without counting. Subitizing develops math fluency, when students recognise sets without having to count each object and it helps develop number sense and the ability to perform mental maths.

Challenge -  Can you make your own subitize cards to show to a partner? You could draw shapes, spiders, worms etc. Have fun!!

English 

I can recognise key parts of a story and recognise repeated language.

This super Julia Donaldson story certainly fits in with our mini-beast theme. Enjoy listening and reading the story together. 

Superworm! Read aloud children's book

Children's book read aloud. Superworm by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.

I can hear rhyming words.

Read the story a few times throughout the week. 

Challenge - can your child fill in the missing rhyming word when you read the story together?
