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.
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.
Creative Writing Task
This week we would like children to listen to the story 'Dear Zoo' by Rod Campbell (video link below) and to then write their own letter to the zoo. We would like children to use the format of a letter, ensuring they use the words 'dear' and 'from'. In their letter they should ask for the animal they would like from the zoo and describe this animal. They could also include what they would do with the animal if it was their pet. They are then asked to draw a picture of their chosen animal. A template for writing and an example is provided below.
*Challenge - Include more than one adjective to describe the chosen animal
**Super challenge - Use a connective to extend 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 doing.
