1. Phonics

We are learning letters and the sounds they make using Floppy's Phonics. This will help you read and write words in English.

We will be learning some new sounds and the code (letters) they are spelt with and also recapping some of the sounds we already know and their code (letters). 

To access the Floppy’s Phonics lessons, you will need your Oxford Owl login. (This will be on the back of your diary.) Then go to 'Floppy’s Phonics Extra Practice Zone'. Scroll down and to find the right number book you need to work on.

There is a ‘Phonics worksheet explained’ document detailing how to complete the daily worksheet.

In English we are reading the story of 'Oi Frog'!

 

Lesson 1: Book 4 ck

Level 1+: Book 4 (oxfordowl.co.uk)

Point to the ck and then the duck and say ‘ck as in duck’. Use your magic finger to trace the letters ck – remember to come out the garage, over the hill, back around, up tall, back down to the bottom, back up half way, round the loop, back down and flick. Now, can you use that magic finger to point at the ck and duck along the line. Once you have practised the sound, try forming the letter ck. Finally, look at the pictures and discuss if they contain the focus sound. Can you think of anything else that has todays sound in it?

Lesson 2: Book 4 e

Level 1+: Book 4 (oxfordowl.co.uk)

Repeat activity from lesson 1 with new sound.

 

Lesson 3: Book 4 u

Level 1+: Book 4 (oxfordowl.co.uk)

Repeat activity from lesson 1 with new sound.

 

Lesson 4: Book 4 r

Level 1+: Book 4 (oxfordowl.co.uk)

Repeat activity from lesson 1 with new sound.

 

 

 

2. English

Lesson 1: Retell our talking story ‘Where is Spot?’ to a grown up. Can you remember all the key parts? Can you retell the story in a silly/loud/robot voice?

 

Lesson 2: Can you cut out the dog mask and pretend to be Spot? Your grown up or sibling can then ask you some of these questions and you need to answer them as Spot. Where was your favourite place to hide in the story? Who was your favourite character that you met? Why? Where are you going to hide next time? You could swap over and think of some questions to ask your grown up.
