Hope you are all well and have enjoyed a good weekend despite the wet weather!
Did you see Freya and Eeshan's mums being a secret reader last week?
Go to the Secret reader page and have a listen!
There are other stories to listen to as well.
I wonder if we'll see any more Opal parents?
Please send in a joke for the Head Boy's Joke challenge...we all need a bit of a laugh at the moment!
Here we go with our 3rd week of on-line learning!
We are very proud of you all! You're doing a great job!!
Challenge of the Day!
Create an obstacle course either indoors or outdoors.
We are now starting Phase 4 of our Phonics learning.
If your child can recognise most of all the Phase 2/3 sounds and read the Phase 2 and 3 tricky words then they are ready for Phase 4.
If you feel that your child still needs more practise with Phase2/3 please re-visit the previous weeks learning and try some other games on the suggested websites on our front class page.
Phase 4 phonics lasts at least 4 to 6 weeks and teaches children to blend and segment longer words with adjacent consonants.
CCVC, CVCC, CCVC, CCVCC, CCCVC and CCCVCCC words.
Kim from Espresso is going to help us to learn about final consonant blends in our first lessons. Click on the link below.
You say this sentence and your child writes it down. Look out for tricky words and sound out each word.
The tent is on the grass.
Challenge 1 - if your child can write this sentence easily add in some describing words e.g. The tent is on the green grass.
Challenge 2 - Can they write another sentence about the tent?
I can use positional/ directional language to describe the position of something.
I can retell the main parts of a story.
I can sing and follow movements for a theme.
Watch and copy this winter dance. See if you can follow and learn the words.
I know that physical exercise is important for good health.
