Week beginning  Monday 6th July 2020 until Wednesday 15th July 2020

This is the work for the last 8 days of this term. You have all done fabulously with your work in school and during lockdown. You have been a pleasure to teach this year and I hope you have the most relaxing summer break.

Urgent: We are still waiting for the cards for Year 6 from some children. Remember these need to be in school by the end of next week please. Thank you for the cards that have been made so far. They will be a lovely surprise for the children.

For the final 8 days of school, we are looking at the story of “The snail and the whale”

Here is the song sung by Julia Donaldson and her husband Malcolm. We will be singing it in school as our rhyme of the week.

Follow the story at the BBC: The snail and the whale

Reading and writing activities will continue to look at the capital letters E to H over the remaining days in school. We start next week finding out more about snails and writing some information work before exploring the story further.

Phonics and Handwriting

Phonics: In school we will be recapping set 2 sounds and how to use them in our writing. This will be done by sounding out words with each of the phonemes listed and this week we will be working on ‘ar’, ‘or’ and ‘air.’ We will also be using the words I, to, the, no and go to write sentences.

These videos will help you to continue to practise the phonemes with your child. The link for set 2 and 3 phonemes is on the Y1 home learning tab. I hope you find this helpful and it will help support your child’s knowledge of the phonemes we have been learning.

There is a free lesson for Speed Sounds Set 2 on the Ruth Miskin YouTube channel at 9.30 am every day. This  is available for 24 hours and will provide good revision Speed Sounds Set 2

This video helps the children to think more about the tricky red words they have to read. Some words in our language can’t be sounded out for reading and your child just has to know them. We tell the children in school “You can’t fred a red, you just have to know them.”

Phase 2 tricky words

Phase 3 tricky words

Handwriting: We will be concentration on the formation of capital letters in the coming weeks. Please be careful if printing this workbook it has 79 pages, I would recommend the greyed out capital letters to guide formation and the blank pages to practise.

Rhyme of the week: We are continuing with the alphabet this week.
