Every week we would like you to write a diary entry in the 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 even ask your grown up to photograph your writing and put it on the blog or send it 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 is your favourite toy?
Ask your child to find their favourite toy. Can they talk about and answer some of the following questions.
Why is it your favourite toy?
Where did it come from?
How do you feel when you play with your toy?
Talk to your child about what your favourite toy was as a child. What was it? Why did you like it?
Write a fact file about your toy.
Use the questions above to help you write about your toy.
Remember to include a picture of your toy this could be a drawing or a photo.
You can write it in your book or use the template below.
Encourage your child to use their phonics to write words.
Look at the teachers fact files about their toy below.
Remember to read at least 3 times a week.
This week try and read some non-fiction. How are they different to fiction books?
Use the phonic sheets we sent home or the powerpoint below to practising saying all the phase 2 and 3 sounds we have learnt in school. How many do you know?
To help decide 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 you need to select the phase 3 activities.
If they are with Mrs Wombell, Mrs Anderson or Miss Meek you need to select the phase 2 activities.
Hope this helps.
