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. 


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.

I can identify different light sources

Sources of Light | Science for Kids | Kids Academy

One of the very interesting topics in science is light. It is a part of the early curriculum and teaches some of the basics. When you start teaching your kid about the light you need to go to the very basics too. The kid needs to understand what actually light is and where does it come from.

Sources of light is a very early lesson that kids need when they start understanding the concept of light. To help you explain this to your kid in easy words let me explain it to you in simple words.
What is light?

Light is what enables you to see around you. To put it in the words of science, light is made up of waves. And where do these waves come from? These waves travel from light sources, the bounce of different objects and enter our eyes, which then allows us to see things.

Look at this powerpoint and discuss if each item is a light source. Challenge - draw the different light sources you have seen and then can you add another one?
