Good morning everyone! Hope you are all well!
Just a reminder about what it is important to keep on doing a bit of each day if you can - phonics, handwriting, reading and number work. We are mindful that not everyone has a printer at home so most of the work I set can be done on screen or just make your own version! It looks like the sun has disappeared for now but you can still do lots of activites outside. How did you go on with the living and non-living challenge yesterday outdoors? I would love to see your efforts on Tapestry. Have fun and enjoy your day!
Challenge of the day!
What sounds might you hear in the countryside?
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.
Remember - Practise makes Better!!
Jack Hartmann's Workout to the Letter Sounds engages students to use their bodies and brains while learning the letter sounds. Jack will be your exercise instructor and name the exercise to do when he does the letters.

I can recognise coins.
I can count in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s
I can make amounts using the correct coins
Now play this Topmarks money game. Select the amounts you want to pay using just one type of coin. This will encourage your child to count in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s.
Challenge - if your child finds this easy then select the amounts you want to pay using mixed coins. Start with up to 10p and see how they go.
I can recognise onomatopoeia words
I can adapt a story with my own ideas.
The story 'We're going on a Bear Hunt' by Micheal Rosen contains onomatopoeia words. Onomatopoeia is using words to represent sounds or using words that sound like what they mean, such as boom, beep, click, meow, etc. When you pronounce an onomatopoetic word, it mimics the sound of what it is describing.
Challenge your child to spot the onomatopoeia words while listening to the story.
Challenge - Can you think of some different sounds for the bear hunt story? What sounds would the family make if they went through a thunderstorm, along a beach or through a tunnel?
On the Action for Happiness calendar this month it is Joyful June. I thought it would be good to listen to what Douglas has to say about feeling joyful even if things can be sad, different and hard at the moment.
Try and find the joy in something everyday!
