Every week we would like you to write a diary entry in your exercise book we gave you about something you have done at home. We look forward to reading them when you are back at school.
You could ask your grown up to photograph your writing and put it on the blog or send it in an email so we can see what you are doing. The teachers will be sharing with you on the blog what they are up to as well.
What am I? Minibeast Riddles
This week we would like to create your own minibeast riddle. You will describe a minibeast of your choice without telling us which minibeast you are describing. We will decide which minibeast we think you are describing.
Here are some examples below. Can you guess which minibeasts we are describing?
When you write your riddles, you may want to fold a piece of paper in half. You can write your riddle on the front and then draw a picture of your minibeast inside so you can open it to show which minibeast you were describing.
Please send us pictures of your riddles to the Year R email as we would love to have a go at guessing.
Remember to read at least 3 times a week.
Use the phonic sheets we sent home or the powerpoint below to practise saying all the Phase 2 and Phase 3 sounds we have learnt in school. Have you beaten your total correct from last week?
To help decided which phonic activities are appropriate for your child ask them whose phonic group they are in.
If they are with Miss Turner, Mrs Atkinson or Miss Campbell then they need to select Phase 3 activities.
If they are with Mrs Wombell, Mrs Anderson or Miss Meek then they need to select Phase 2 activities.
I hope this helps
Phonics Piano Activity
Have a go at creating with your child a piano using cardboard or paper. Add on various sounds that could be blended together to make simple words. Try and have a mixture of vowels and consonants as well as digraphs (Two letters that make one sound) and tri-graphs (Three letters that make one sound).
Parents it is now your job to think of words that could be typed on your child's piano. Try and challenge them with some longer words if you think they are able.
Can they sound these words out correctly and type the sounds in the right order?
Maybe you could use a timer to see how many words they could write correctly in 1 minute!
You could use this to even practise writing your tricky words.
