Friday 19th June

Good morning Everybody,



Thank you for all your lovely work yesterday.


Have a great weekend! Relax and enjoy yourselves


Mrs E


Here are today's tasks


To start today's phonics please can you recap your phase 3 and phase 5 sounds that you find tricky. You can use your sound mats or you could use the flash cars on phonics play.



Can you now practice some of your tricky words- You need to be able to read and spell these! Practise the ones that you find difficult. Choose up to 5.





This half term we are going to be looking at alternative pronunciations and alternative spellings. Today we are going to look at the alternative pronunciation for the ‘ou’ grapheme.  Can you read these words?


loud, proud, sound, round, mountain, you, soup, group, could, would, should


Use these games to practice the alternative pronunciation of the 'ou' sound



Phonics can be very confusing to some children when we start to find out about the alternative pronunciations – If your child is becoming confused just continue to practice the main phase 5 phonemes.


Reading – Have you read any books from Big Cat Collins?


You should try to read one or two a week.


Remember Choose the colour above your home reading book. There is an activity to complete at the end of the book. Let me know what books you have read there are lots of dojo points on offer.

Warm-up – Practice counting backwards in 2s, 5s and 10s – Forwards and backwards. You choose which you need to practice.

Practice using Whack-a-mole.

What number can you count to or count back from?


If you are not confident counting forwards – keep practising forwards rather than backwards.


Practice repeated addition and the links with multiplication. Below are three worksheets. The first one is the easiest, after that they become a little more difficult as you will need to begin making the links yourselves to work out the answers.


Examples for Worksheet 1



Examples from worksheet 2



Examples from worksheet 3



Let me know how you get on.


Either print and complete, write the answers on a separate sheet or discuss the answers with an adult or older brother or sister.




Unscramble sentences


Below is a powerpoint with mixed up sentences. Can you re-arrange them so that the sentences make sense? They are not questions or exclamations so they begin with a capital letter and end with a full stop.



When you have finished there are three worksheets at the bottom with some more muddled up sentences. Can you choose one of the worksheets to complete the mixed up sentences? The first one is the easiest and then they get a bit more difficult because they have more words to read and unscramble.


You don’t have to print off the worksheet you can just write the correct sentence (or ask an adult to write the sentence and then you can cut it up and put it back in the correct order.)



Today we are going to be learning about an important person from the past. She is called Florence Nightingale. Watch the videos and then complete the activities.



Activity 1 

Can you put these key events of Florence's life in the correct order?




Activity 2

Can you complete this fact sheet? Or you can just write the answers or discuss them with a member of your family.


Remember, you can post all your work on Class Dojo to show me what you have done. There are lots of dojo points on offer! smiley
