Please read with your child for 20 minutes each day. This could be a story book which you read, a phonics book which they read or a mixture of the two.
Oxford Owl have a library of free books which can be read on a phone or tablet.
Follow the link below and sign up yourself. You can then access a variety of books which are age-appropriate. Start on age 3-4 (Oxford Level 1) and work your way through as your child gets more confident.
Today we are continuing to revise our Phase 2 sounds before we start Phase 3 next week.
Watch the video below and then follow the link below to play a phoneme recognition game. Start with Phase 2 Set 1 and 2 (they will be in red boxes.)
Blue and Green challenge: practise handwriting some of the letters that you child is finding more challenging to form.
Purple challenge: give your child words which contain some of the letters which they are still finding challenging to form. You could then extend this to include simple sentences with our learnt sight words.
Today we are practising recognising o'clock times.
Watch my video below and then complete one of the following activities.
Blue challenge: Use the clock that you made yesterday (I have attached a photograph below, in case you were unable to complete the activity yesterday) then create o'clock times with the hands for your child to read.
Green and Purple challenge: print out the show below and ask your child to write the numbers of the o'clock times in the gaps. If you don't have a printer, you could use the clock that you made yesterday to create o'clock times and ask your child to write the times down on a white board or piece of paper to show that they know how to write the times.
Today we are learning about Global Warming. Global Warming is affecting polar bears more and more every year.
I have attached a video below which explains Global Warming on a child level.
Watch the video with your child and then talk about the affects of Global Warming.
Why is Global Warming dangerous?
What causes Global Warming?
Why is it bad for polar bears and other animals?
How might it affect people?
Record your child's answers either on paper or with a video and let me know what their thoughts and understanding were in Tapestry.
