We have finished learning all of our Set 2 Sounds and will begin recapping these after the half term. This week we would like to focus on some of our Set 1 Special Friends; sounding, blending and writing. You will need a piece of paper and pencil or your Remote Learning Book. If there is a particular sound your child is struggling with, you can also use this time to continue to practice sounding, writing and blending using that sound.
Today's focus is 'sh'. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yrXQWX3SC8

Hampshire School Games
Complete a new challenge each day:
Use White Rose Home Learning Growing 6,7,8! Week 3 Session 2. Comparing Length.
Allow your child to watch the video and join in with the activity. Instead of using playdough, you could cut different lengths of string.
Mr Evans' Challenge
-Make a paper 'footprint'. Use your 'footprint' to compare against other items. Can you find items which are longer than your foot, shorter, about the same size? Can you arrange your families shoes in size order, by making direct comparisons? i.e. Daddy's show is longer than mine.
-You may like to use a ruler or tape measure (or make your own), to explore measuring items in your house or in your garden. Can your recognise the numeral? i.e. the car is 4.
Spellings - Red Words
Today's focus is: do
As we would do in school, show and say the word to your child, then ask them to recall it to you. Encourage your child to use this word within their own sentence i.e. I can do that.
As an extra challenge, ask your child to record the word in their Remote Learning Book, they could even complete a simple sentence written for them i.e. __ you want a go?

On Thursday, we are going to have our final Google Meet of the half term. We are going to have a quiz about the countries we have visited over the past few weeks and would like you to make 6 cards ready for Thursday, to hold up in front of the camera to give your answer.
Here is my example, I have used one sheet of plain paper and have drawn the flags for each country. I will then cut these out ready for the quiz. You could do something else, i.e. the name of the country or famous landmark from there.
