Welcome to a new week – something to motivate you on Monday! Welcome to another week… Miss Reese and Miss Hullin are aware home learning is probably very strange for you all…if you have a go at any of these activities and find any of them useful, that’s all we are hoping for! Please don’t think you have to use and complete all of them, everyday. You are the ones with your children and we know you will to be guided by how they are doing and what you think they need to do next… Have fun and take plenty of breaks… we’ve added more yoga if that has been helpful for relaxation. For an activity on Friday it would be useful if you had saved up some recycling – plastic bottles, tin can, toilet rolls – any of these would come in handy – just use whatever you have… Activities for anytime… Please remember to read books daily https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000fbs4/cbeebies-bedtime-stories-740-joe-wicks-love-monster-and-the-perfect-present Look at tricky words – remember the youtube songs from before easter -if they help. There are lots of games and resources on www.letters-and-sounds.com Please look at phase 2, 3 and 5 digraphs on a daily basis. Please keep looking at the sounds that groups of letters make – if your child needs to. Please use this video again if it helps. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sNxyckQJK8 Can your child say the sound that represents each letter? When you say a sound can they write each of the letters that represent that sound? This week’s spellings are put could house old by come don’t look very there Monday Challenges ENGLISH – Now where were we with Jack… oh yes he’s just spotted that scary castle!
