Good morning everyone! Hope you are all well!
I hope that you have had a good weekend. Did you have a look at the teachers doing some funny reading on Friday? My photo was quite normal but did you see Mrs Welsh reading with her dogs and Mrs Stone reading upside down?
Just a reminder that I would like to post a photo gallery on our class page that shows the children's family connections in different countries around the world and the British Isles. So please could you send in your family photos to our class email address by Friday 12th June. This will be a a good way for the children to see how we are all connected around the world and to start looking at world maps.
Challenge of the day!
What is your favourite place to visit? Can you draw a picture of it?
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 3/4 please revisit our previous lessons and also use your child's Home Learning Book to consolidate prior learning. I am glad to hear that some parents are consolidating Phase 3 and 4 phonics.
We have looked at the first set of Phase 5 phonics and for the rest of this term we will now be consolidating Phase 3/4/5 learning ready for Year 1.
Remember - Practise makes Better!!
Do you still have your letter cards? Using the uppercase (capital) letters place them face down on the table. You should have 26 cards. Choose a card and turn it over - can you say its name? Ask an adult to time you. Can you beat your first try?
2. Today we will play a Phase 4 word matching game.
3. Let's see how many of the first 100 common words your child can read. Tick the ones you know and keep the practising the ones you don't.
4. Can you write these Phase 4 sentences? You say this sentence, sound out each word and your child writes it down. Watch out for the tricky words -
The man burnt the toast.
The girl burnt the milk.
The milk spilt on the carpet.
Remember - Start your sentence with a capital letter.
Leave finger spaces.
End your sentence with a full stop.
