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 Phase 2 phonics.
Watch the video below to practise reading some words with the Alphablocks then complete onf of the following activities.
Blue and Green challenge: print out the phoneme frames. Write down the three sounds needed for each picture on separate pieces of paper (alternatively, your could use toy or magnetic letters) and ask your child to place them in the correct order.
Purple challenge: print out the phoneme frames below and ask your child to segment the words and write them in the gaps.
If you do not have a printer, show the pictures on the screen of your device and then either provide the sounds for your child to order or ask them to write the words on a piece of paper.
Extra activity: Follow the link to an Alphablocks quiz. This quiz gives you clues to read to your child. They then read the sounds and have to work out which is missing. You could help them to identify the sound by segmenting the word with your child a few times.. You could further support by exaggerating the sound which is missing whilst your segment the word together.
Today we are going to be making o'clock times.
Your child will need either their craft clock or a toy clock to use so that they can take part in today's video. i have attached an example of how you could make one, in case you did not have time to complete the task earlier in the week.
After you have finished the video, please complete one of the following activities.
Blue challenge: talk to your child about making the times and then give them various o'clock times which they can make with their toy or craft clock.
Green and Purple challenge: print out the worksheet below and ask your child to draw the hands on the clocks to show the correct time. If you do not have a printer, write down times (e.g. 8 o'clock) for your child to read and then ask them to make the times on their toy or craft clock.
Today we are learning about recycling.
