Good morning everyone. We hope you are well. Below you will find a Powerpoint of different activities for the end of the week followed by some ideas for Easter activities that you might like to complete. Please let us know if you would like any help or guidance with anything.
Below are some links for websites that might be of interest to your child.
Good morning everyone, we have made a powerpoint of activities for you to have a go at over the next few days if you want something to keep you busy. Hope you have enjoyed the sun.
We have added a few new activities on to Seesaw today. Please have a look at them and have a go at them. We would love to see what you are doing at home whether it's these activities or anything else.
For those of you who might not be able to access Seesaw the activities are:
Shape hunt- what shapes can you find around your home or garden
Letter hunt - can you put the letters of the alphabet in order and find things in the house that start with each letter?
Scavenger hunt- if you can get outside, see what you can find in the garden. See below for a printable version.
Flowers - draw or paint a picture of a Spring flower, or your own made up flower!
Please be sure to continually practise sounds and letter formation at home. This will make a huge difference to the children's learning at school. Please be sure to update Seesaw as regularly as possible to allow us to see what the children are doing at home.
Hello my name is Ollie Otter.
Each week I will come and stay with you.
Please look after me.
We are going to learn our sounds starting on Phase 2 of the Letters and Sounds phonic scheme. Sounds are taught in a specific order which enable children to start to learn how to blend sounds together to read simple words and segment to spell words.
Children will practise to blend sounds together to read a word e.g. s i t = sit. Children will develop their blending (for reading) and segmenting (for spelling) skills at their level of understanding.
Here are some of the words we teach your children:
Phoneme - one sound / the shortest sound in a word e.g. day has two phonemes first sound is d, the second sound is ay.
Grapheme - the written letter which represents the spoken sound.
Segment - break up a word for spelling e.g. ship - sh i p
Blend - mix sounds together for reading e.g. f i sh - fish
Digraph - two letters that make a brand new sound e.g. wh / sh / ch / ai / ie
Trigraph - three letters that make a brand new sound e.g. igh / air / ear
