Our English work is based around the story of The Jolly Postman.

Please keep practising set 2 and 3 phonemes.

 

In Phonics this week, there are four new sounds but activities are the same as previous weeks.

  • Monday Activity 1- Read and Write the HFW- Read the High Frequency Words/ red words, then write two sentences using two of those words.
  • Tuesday Activity 2- Draw- Read the words including your sound for the day, and draw a picture to go with each word.
  • Wednesday Activity 3- Match- Read the words including your sound for the day, and match them to their picture.
  • Thursday Activity 4- Swap- Read the sentences and swap the underlined words out for one of the sound of the day words in the box.

These activities can be repeated and adapted for each sound. Keep practising sounds we have already covered and any that you found tricky.

 

 

Our weekly challenge this week based on The

Jolly Postman. He travelled around on his bicycle delivering the mail. Can you design and make a new vehicle to deliver letters.  You can use junk modelling, construction kits, eg Lego etc… See if you can test your vehicle by fitting your letter inside.

 

 

 

Have a good week,
