Good morning Robins,
Here are today's learning activities. We hope you enjoy doing them.
First of all practise saying the names of the letters of the alphabet in order. Look and listen very carefully to the part with the letters l m n o p in as these are sung quickly and it's sometimes hard to hear which order they come in. Also, remember that in England we say 'zed' rather than 'zee' for the last letter of the alphabet.
Yesterday you had a go at spelling words with more than one syllable. Do you remember what that word syllable means? It means 'part of a word'. You can clap the syllables in words to see how many there are and how each one sounds.
Now you can play this game to help you to get even better at segmenting and spelling words with two syllables in them.
Did you watch the video telling Julia Donaldson's story 'The Snail and the Whale' yesterday? Did you notice how it has lots of rhyming words in it? Julia Donaldson is really good at writing stories with rhymes in them.
Can you be like her and think of some words which rhyme with the words below? You can write your words down if you like. Because English is such a strange language, words which rhyme with each other don't always have the same spelling pattern so you may want a grown-up to help you with this.
Here are the words:
Yesterday you were practising recognising and naming different 3D shapes and seeing if you could find real things that had those shapes. How did you get on?
Today, you're going to carry out a little investigation to see which 3D shapes will roll and which won't. Your grown-ups will help you with this! Have fun. See if you can predict what will happen before you carry out the investigation and then see if you were right.
