  • If your child is not a confident sound spotter, encourage your child to sit for the word time and spelling lessons of both Set 1 & Set 2. (Most children should now be confident with Set 1 and will only require recapping Set 2 Sounds.) 
  • With a pen and paper at the ready, ask your child to join in and write the words. They will then tick each sound and see if they are right.
  • Phonics Bloom: https://www.phonicsbloom.com/uk/game/flash-cards?phase=3
    • Choose option 6.
    • Say the sounds, let your adult select correct 'yes' or 'no' to move the pirate ship.
    • Have a second go. Can you beat your score?
  • Challengehttps://www.phonicsbloom.com/uk/game/tricky-trucks?phase=3
    • Choose the Phase 3 option and then choose tricky words from the options.
    • What is your best score?

Handwriting

This week, we will be recapping the formation of our One Armed Robot letters.

This can be written into the Home Learning books, or alternatively, a print out of the letters (pages 9 to 12) can be found here: https://primarysite-prod-sorted.s3.amazonaws.com/wellow-primary-school/UploadedDocument/71ecb3a914624f4f8f39f15c80089a71/handwriting.pdf

 

Today we will be concentrating on letters m and k. Can you form them correctly? Can you write out the words? Remember your ascenders and descenders. Where does your letter sit on the line? Where do you start your letter?

Maths

This week will be exploring patterns, making simple patterns to start with and then moving onto more complex ones toward the end of the week. 

  • Talk about the following picture with your child. Can they see a pattern? Is there a mistake?

  • Can you make your own repeating pattern with some toys or blocks and add in a mistake? Can your adult spot the mistake? Let your adult make one for you. Can you spot their mistake?
  • Top Marks Maths: Start with level 1 and progress through. Can you get to Level 3? https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ordering-and-sequencing/shape-patterns

Spellings - Red Words 

We have looked at all of our Red Words and have written some brilliant sentences.

  • Last week, I asked you to make your own set of red words. Today I would like you to make another set. We can then use these to play a game of snap tomorrow and Friday. 
  • Think very carefully of how each letter is formed.

Other Work

Taken from the Oak National Academy Online Classroom:

In this lesson, we will listen to a story about real life superheroes (doctors)! We will then think about some more of the very special people in our communities who help us. At the end of the lesson, we will think about what our dream job is.
