Wednesday 1st July

Good morning! Hope you are well!


I hope that you are enjoying doing the suggested activities. How healthy were your food cupboards? Give yourself 5 stars if you had more healthy food than unhealthy food. Post a photo on Tapestry - sorting into sets is always a good activity.

We would love to see it!

Just a reminder about sending in a video thank you message to your Yr6 Buddy. We really want to give them a good send off with our best wishes. Please send them to the class email address by Sunday 5th July. Many thanks!


Challenge of the Day!



Would you like to live in a lighthouse? Explain your reasons!


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.


Remember - Practise makes Better!!

I can count in 10's using 10p coins


Counting practice
o You need a mug and a number of 10p coins.
o Rehearse counting in tens to 100. Ten, twenty, thirty, etc.
o With each number you say, throw out ten fingers!
o Now ask your child to shut their eyes or turn their back.
o Drop 10p coins into the mug, one at a time, so that the child can hear the ‘clink’ as each coin lands.
o Pause when you have dropped in four 10p coins.
o Ask how much is in the mug. The child should have been counting the clinks. Ten, twenty, thirty, forty. They tell you.
o Repeat several times, dropping different numbers of coins each time.

Sesame Street: We're All Wonders | Read Along Series

Luis is reading to Elmo and Abby about a little boy named Auggie who doesn't look like everyone else. Join Elmo, Abby, and Luis as they read "We're All Wonders" by R.J. Palacio. And remember, if you look with kindness you will always find wonder!

"If you look with kindness you will always find wonder"!

When you have watched the video talk to your child about the ways in which they might be different from their friends.

They might look different, like different food, like different activities etc.
