Phonics

Last week we had a really good recap of the digraphs ‘ai’ and ‘ee’. Let's see if we have remembered...

 

Grownups, first say 'ai' clearly to your child and see if they can write the letters that represent this sound. Remember, they are digraphs-2 letters side-by-side, making 1 sound. Now do the same with the 'ee' phoneme.

 

Ask your child if they can you think of 3 words that have an ‘ai’ phoneme (sound) in them?

I wonder if they could write them?

Can they think of 3 words that have an ‘ee’ phoneme (sound) in them?

I wonder if they could write them?

Now, I wonder if you could put your ‘ai’ and ‘ee’ words into spoken sentences?

 

This week we will focus on the first trigraph that the children learn on their phonic journey.

A trigraph is a phoneme (sound) like all of the others that we have learnt. It’s difference is that it has… 3 letters side-by-side that make 1 sound

Have a recap on all of the phonemes we have learnt by listening and joining in with the Jolly Phonics video. Can you look out for the song and action that will help you to remember the igh trigraph?

Follow the video all about the ‘igh’ trigraph and practise segmenting and blending words that contain it. Just click the link below…

Grownups, say these words to your child out loud, nice and clearly, making the beginning middle and end sounds really clear and ask them to have a go at writing them…

Let’s have a recap of our Tricky Words. Upon school closure, the children were all at different stages in securing the Phased sets of Tricky Words. The following Powerpoint allows you to select the Tricky Words according to each Phase…

Monday’s Maths Work

 

Let’s warm up our brain mathematicians!

 

 

I have recorded my voice to help your child to follow this PowerPoint independently. You could use it as an opportunity to practise number formation too. As a number is generated, your child will say what the number name is and then write it before clicking on the number to generate a new one. In it, they will practise recall of numbers 0-20. Here is the link…

 

Last week we practised naming 2D shapes, we learnt some mathematical vocabulary about 2D shapes too when we talked about their properties.

This week, we will look at 3D shapes. We have covered this in class previously.

Here are the 3D shapes that we have already covered…

 

 

Let’s explore the 3D shapes that we find around us everyday! Click on the Powerpoint link…

 

This activity is great for 3D shape recognition and counting with accuracy. At school, when counting pictures, we put a line through them as we count them to help us to count with accuracy. Could you try this at home? A link to this work sheet is below.

 

Now join in with a 3D shape song!

Monday’s Physical Challenge

 

Join Elsa from Frozen in her fitness workout!

  2. BTW, have you discovered that on the Epic reading resource you can click on the ‘Quiz’ icon when you have read any book and you will be given a little multiple choice quiz! Awesome, fun reading to be had!
