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.

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

 

  • Head off on a shape hunt and explore and identify shapes in your environment. You can go on a shape hunt around your house, garden or local area. Take some pictures of the shapes that you see along the way! 
  • Create 2D shapes with lollipop sticks.
  • Create 3D shapes with playdough.
  • Using paper, cut out simple 2D shapes and then arrange them into a picture. Perhaps you could create a house or a rocket.

 

 

Creative Writing Task

This week we would like children to write about what they would take to the seaside! Watch the story, 'Lucy and Tom at the Seaside' below to give you some ideas of what you would take with you to the seaside. Also, don't forget to use some ideas from your creative task last week. What can you take with you to make sure that you are safe at the seaside?

*Challenge  - write a list

**Super challenge - write sentences describing what you would take with you

 

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.
