Hello. Another day for some wonderful learning. Mr Grimshaw and Mrs Molyneux are super proud of you for working so hard at home and you have finished phase 3 of phonics now. You are all so super clever.
Today we would like you to use all your phonics knowledge of the sounds and tricky words and write us some sentences. Watch the videos about capital letters and full stops to remind you about them and then finish the sentences for the two pictures. Try to make your sentences as interesting as possible you might be able to do this by using the word ‘and’ in your sentence.
Yesterday you came up with your very own superhero mini beast. Today you are going to write about your mini beast. I would suggest you write sentences to describe your super mini beast. For example if you chose ‘Amazing Ant’ you might say ‘Amazing Ant is amazingly small’ or ‘Amazing ant is extremely clever’. Once you have thought about your mini beast and described it you could start to think about words that rhyme just like Julia did in super worm. She said ‘super worm is super long, super worm is super strong’. Can you think of a sentence about your super mini beast and make the last two words rhyme? Have a go as this can be tricky.
Yesterday you began to explore length. Looking at things that are long and short. Today we are going to carry on with that but we are going to learn how to use a tool to help us. A ruler. Look at the PowerPoint which explains how we use a ruler. Remember you have to start at 0. After looking at the PowerPoint you may find a ruler in your house or you could make one with help from a grown up. See if you can find things in your house that are long and short. Remember the larger the number the longer it is. Think about using the word Centimetre as this is the word we use when measuring with a ruler.
