Phonics

Reading phase 3 sentence.  (Only look at pages 1 and 2 this week).  Look at these sentences, sound them out? Is the answer yes or no.   This will get children to begin to understand what they have read. Keep practising them each day to become more fluent.

This week’s game:

Use the username march20 and password home to login to phonics play. Play the game: - https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/3/sentence-substitution-ph3

Use the words to make a new sentence. If this is too hard go back to phase 2.

 

Literacy

This week our literacy home learning unit is about  “Colour Monster”. This is a great story for talking about different emotions. Please use this to talk to your child about different occasions when they feel sad, angry, calm, happy etc and link them to the colour. Explain that all these feelings are normal and we all feel like this sometimes.

Please make a list of what they say or ask them to write a sentence for each colour showing their feelings and send them to me.

Maths

Hopefully children are becoming more and more confident in recognising numbers to 20 and putting them in order. Please let me know where you are up to on this.

 

This week we are going to focus on
