PhonicsPlay is a fantastic online resource to help children learn to read and write.
Should the U.K. government decide to formally close schools, PhonicsPlay will become free to use so that children can access the site at home without parents needing to subscribe. https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/
Week commencing: Monday 16th March 2020
For those of you in self-isolation, our learning at school this week is as follows:
Phonics – we have been leaning to the phase 3 sound ‘air’ (please refer to your sound mats given or Jolly Phonics on YouTube for correct pronunciation).
We have been reading ‘air’ words – hair, pair, lair, fair, etc. and trying to write them. We have been reading ‘air’ sentences and trying to write our own e.g. ‘My hair is long.’
Maths – We are looking at the properties of 3D shapes by finding and counting their faces, sides and corners. We have been comparing them to other 3D shapes. Go on a 3D shape hunt around your home and label what you find.
Literacy – We have read the story Superbat. We created a comic book style strip with three boxes and drew pictures in each box to match the beginning, middle and end of the story. For a challenge, we wrote a sentence to match what was happening in the story at that point.
We have also been learning some bat facts and writing a bat fact sentence.
