We hope you are all safe and keeping well over Ramadan. We are missing you all very much and looking forward to seeing you when the government announce it is safe to do so.
Today we would like you to watch a video about all digraphs and trigraphs we have learnt in phase 3 of phonics. We would also like you to watch a video with all the tricky words. Try and remember how to spell the tricky words when watching.
After watching the videos we would like you to choose 3 sounds and 3 tricky words and then write 3 sentences using these. For example if you chose the ‘ar’ sound and the tricky word ‘we’ you might write the sentence ‘We are going to the farm’. You might want to draw some lovely pictures for us too.
Yesterday you looked at a book by one of our favourite authors - Julia Donaldson. Today we our going to look at another Julia Donaldson book. We have read this book before during our superheroes topic. The main character is a superhero and he is a mini beast can you guess which story we are going to look
at ...... It’s Superworm.
Watch the video and whilst you are watching be thinking about all the different animals you can see in the story. After the video can you make a list of all the different animals in the story? Can you come up with tour own super mini beast today and draw a picture of it? You might choose to call it Super Snail or Amazing Ant. Tomorrow we are going to write about the mini beast you choose.
Remember how the story says ‘super worm is super long’ well we are going to be exploring this. We call it measuring in maths and we have looked at this in school. When we are measuring we use some special words like short, shorter, shortest, long, longer and longest to describe things when we are exploring length. We would like you to draw 5 different length worms on some paper and then cut them out. Then put them in order from the shortest to the longest. See if you can talk about the worm by pointing to them and telling the grown up “this worm is longer than this worm” or “this worm is the shortest”.
Maybe after all this lovely learning you could go outside and look for some worms, where might they be? Remember to be very careful as they don’t really like being touched by us. Have fun!
