Good morning everyone. What a busy week we have had! We hope you enjoyed our World Book Day activities. We can’t believe we will get to see you all on Monday; we are so excited. Here is our plan for today:

  1. Revision of Set 1 sounds     
  2. Speedy writing – you will need a pen or felt tip for this part so I can see your writing on camera!    
  3. Helping Fred create some words by putting the sounds together      
  4. Making words using our phonics chart and reading to check      
  5. Fred Talking and blending sounds on green word cards and developing the skill of ‘Fred in our head’      
  6. Spelling words using our Fred Fingers     
  7. Writing these words – you will need your pen and piece of paper for this

Can you help Fred learn more body parts? Help him blend the sounds together: https://schools.ruthmiskin.com/training/view/3NqrGE2K/TEQO75xt

11:00 – 12:00 Maths: For our Maths session today, we would like you to join in with the online game below. It focuses on comparing sizes with different objects.

A huge well done to you all for your hard work during these strange times. We would like to say a special thank you to parents and carers for getting your child into school each day or working with them at home; either way, your support has meant the world to us all. We can’t wait to come back together next week and continue to move forward. Have a lovely weekend. Take care everyone.
