Hello,

If this is your first visit to this website, it might be worth reading the pages ‘a guide to using this website’ and ‘copyright infringement.

Phonics

This term we are introducing the phase 3 phonics program.

Today is a recap day, so instead of a sound video, here is a (very catchy) tricky word song video that covers the new tricky words we have learnt and more.

Following on from the above, here is today’s session:

I initially filmed this video to be suitable for the children to watch on their own as per the previous term’s phonics videos, however due to the short notice of school closure I have not been able to create videos that are more interactive. So please ensure you and your child have a pencil/pen and piece of paper/whiteboard with you as you watch the video. Feel free to pause and model any writing elements to them and also encourage them to write where appropriate e.g. the letter formation part. This phonics session should last no longer than 15 minutes.

The presentation this video is based on is from Twinkl.

Sentence Writing

The children have done amazing this week and done lots of writing, so there is no sentence writing today.

Maths

This week we are focusing on ‘weight’.

For today’s session I would like you to find 20 objects and order them by weight, lightest to heaviest. Please feel free to use any weighing method you wish, including estimation.

Please also remember that all the children have a school Numbots account. Numbots is a fun app that turns counting, addition and subtraction into a game where the children can earn certificates. Login details were given out last term, please let me know if you need me to resend your child’s.

Thank you as always for your support.
