Sounds

Please continue to practise Phase 2 and Phase 3 sounds. Continue to work on learning these sounds by sight and writing them correctly.  You could challenge your child to write these sounds in words and then in sentences should you feel they need extending.

 

If you feel your child is now secure with both Phase 2 and Phase 3 sounds, they can now move onto Phase 4. In Phase 4 children are not taught any new phonemes (the sounds) or graphemes (the way it is written). Instead, they are taught to further manipulate the phonemes and graphemes they have already learnt. Many of the words children explored in Phase 2 and 3 were monosyllabic (words of one syllable). You can find the Phase 4 mat below along with some activities for all phases that your child can complete.

High Frequency Words

Please continue to practise the high frequency words that the children have already begun to learn. Your child should continue to learn these set by set. Once your child has learnt a set, challenge them to write the word on a piece of paper, focusing on correct spelling. Extend the activity by encouraging them to write the word in a simple sentence.  Please find these under the 'High Frequency Word' section on the Homework page.  Below are some extra activities to practise reading high frequency words.

Reading

  1. Reading comprehension book pg.12 'What happened first?'
  2. All children have been assigned books on their Bug Club account according to their appropriate level.

 

Handwriting

  1. PenPals for Handwriting workbook two pg.20-21 'Practising all the one-armed robot letters: r, b, n, h, m, k, p'

 

Numeracy

  1. Problem Solving workbook pg.13 'How Many More?'
  2. Days of the week, Months of the year & Seasons - All children have been assigned a range of practical activities, practise sheets and resources on their Bug Club account to consolidate their skills. 

 

Ideas for some fun practical Maths activities with a focus on Measurement:

 

  • Use a wall measuring chart to measure the height of people in your family.
  • Talk to your child about objects around them. Help them judge which is bigger or smaller, taller or shorter.
  • Cut a piece of string for your child. Use the string to measure the objects in your house. Find out what is longer or shorter than your ‘string measuring tape’. Ask your child to identify anything that is the same length.
  • Explore other ways of measuring, such as using footprints or hand lengths.
  • Help your child to build a tower of blocks that is taller than a favourite toy. Ask your child to count the total blocks to measure the height of the tower.
  • Estimate and measure who can jump the furthest. Or who can stand on one foot for a longer period, or how many buttons might fill a jar.
  • Explore the size of different containers by pouring and filling. Estimate, then check to see which holds more or less.
  • Notice changes in the weather and the time of day. Use an old bottle and create a ‘rain gauge’ to measure and monitor how much it rains.

 

Creative Writing Task

This week we would like children to read the story 'Sammy Seagull's Summer Safety' and the information on sun, sea and beach safety - please see the attached PDF below.  (Children may need help to read the story and information).  After reading the story and information we would like children to create their own rules for being safe in the sun and at the beach.  An example is provided below.

*Challenge  - Use a connective to extend your sentences

**Super challenge - Try and vary the way that you start your sentences

 

Children are asked to email a picture of their written work or a word document of their writing to the teachers via the Hwb emails on the 'Homework' page, where teachers will then provide appropriate feedback.  They can also send any other pictures of learning they have been completing.
