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
