Please put any work you do in your purple exercise book or take pictures and put them on Tapestry. I can't wait to see what you get up to!
Read your sound mat and tricky words.
You have finished all the sounds in Phase 3 and recapped them.
If your children need more practise with certain sounds then recap them again. I have left the allocations on Bug Club for the lessons so they will be there for you to revisit at any time.
Phase 4 is all about blends. Blends are made up of two consonants.
I will attach the Phase 4 sound mat below.
At the beginning of Phase 4 children practise reading and writing CCVC (consonant, consonant, vowel, consonant) and CVCC (consonant, vowel, consonant, consonant) words so this is what we will be focusing on, as well as particular letter blends.
Today's blend is 'st'.
There is also a lesson on CVCC words on the Bug Club.
We are now gong to write the end of our story.
Look at your 'end' section of your Five Finger Retell sheet and retell and write the end part of your story.
The wolf ait grandmar and Little Red Righding Hood. The wood cutter set them free. The end.
(Remember children are are only expected to use phonetic writing.)
Encourage your children to write a few short sentences today but make sure the task lasts no longer than 10-15 minutes. If it does, leave it and return to the task when they are ready.
Recap the features of a clock.
If your child is struggling with 'o'clock' then you can carry on practising that today.
If your child is confident with o'clock you can teach them half past.
Using the clocks they had made, explain that half past is when the long minute hand in on the 6 and the short hour hand is between two numbers. The number you need to look at with the hour hand is the number before.
For example: when the clock is half past 5, the short hour hand will be between the 5 and the 6. So the number you will need to look at is the 5 because that is the number just before the hour hand.
Don't forget Mr Nicholls sets activities under the P.E. section on the Class Pages overview.
