We are continuing with dictation this week. As last time, the focus is on the children listening carefully, holding a sentence in their head and writing it down accurately. It sounds like lots of you really enjoyed this! There is also a split digraph sheet where the children are writing the words next to pictures (answer sheet included), a worksheet to revisit the phoneme 'are', a live game of 'Blending Bingo' (Game 18) and a sort the alien and real words activity. You will need the pirate pictures or Obb and Bob to sort the words on to.

We are continuing to learn the Year 1 spellings and will add new words each week. Don't forget to check that your children are spelling them independently in their everyday writing!


Monday - revisiting 'are' (care and share) sheet

Tuesday - dictation 

Wednesday - revisiting all split digraphs sheet

Thursday - Blending Bingo game 18 (oy and ir)

Friday - spellings and pirate match game - real and alien split digraphs.


Below are the activity sheets for each day.






You can help your child practise spellings in fun ways:-

  • try writing them on a wall with a paintbrush and water
  • make the words with sticks, playdough or lego
  • write them in a tray of sand, shaving foam or flour
  • make a snap or pairs game to play together
