Good morning everyone!
Thank you for sending us photographs of your learning from yesterday. We really enjoyed looking at it. Here are today's learning activities.
Today you're going to learn two new tricky words but, before that, it's a good idea to practise the ones that you have already learned. To do this, go to the Phonics Play website and play the game 'Tricky Word Trucks'. Here is the link you need. https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/3/tricky-word-trucks
The two new tricky words that you're going to learn are in the powerpoint presentation below. Count how many letters are in each of the words, what letter and sound they begin with and work out what and where the 'tricky' part is.
Now have a go at reading these sentences (some of them have the new 'trickies' in them) and answer yes or no to them or do 'thumbs up, thumbs down.' Some of the questions, as usual, are a bit silly.
1. Can you skip?
2. Have you slept in a tent?
3. Can frogs jump?
4. Do snails have shells?
5. Have you ever been to Spain?
6. Can slugs do star jumps?
7. Did you sleep on a star last night?
Yesterday you had a look at the picture of all the different methods of transport in the 'You Choose' book. How many different vehicles did you see, I wonder? Have you ever travelled on a train? Today you're going to listen to (and maybe join in with) a story called 'The Train Ride' about a little girl and her Mum who go on a train ride to the seaside for a special reason.
Can you remember some of the things that the little girl saw through the window as she was travelling along on the train?
Make a list of as many of them as you can.
There is some more addition for you to do today, this time it's to do with space travel. You have to count the different sets of space objects, write down how many there are of each then, on the 'Checklist' complete the addition sentences to find totals. Have fun with it. See if you can use your counting on skills, counting on from the number in the first set. Good luck!
