At this stage in the school year we would have moved on to Set 2 sounds. There are 12 Set 2 ‘speed sounds’ that are made up of two or three letters which represent just one sound, e.g. ay as in play, ee as in tree and igh as in high. It is important that your child does not pronounce these as 2 or 3 separate sounds. When your child sees the ‘speed sound’ letters together in a word, they must say just one sound for these letters.
Watch and practise with the video below.
Write a friendly letter to the spider. Think of something that you might want to tell, say or ask a spider. Think about what you want to write first and tell an adult what you are going to write. Remember to make sure your worl is presently neatly and your handwrite can be read clearly.
I have put an instruction sheet on with what to do for your maths activity today. The first page is a warm up activity. You need sticky notes or small bits of paper; also some counters, LEGO™ bricks or even raisins!
Learn a variety of songs and rhymes linked to minibeasts.
Sing and learn actions to the traditional rhyme:
Underneath a stone where the soil was firm (One hand makes a fist to form the Stone)
I found a wiggly, wiggly worm. (Tip the fist to reveal a wiggling finger from the other hand)
“Good morning,” I said, and “How are you today?” (Talk to wriggling finger)
But the wiggly worm just wiggled away. (Finger wriggles behind back)
