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


Can you now practise your tricky words- You need to be able to read and spell these



For our last week we are going to be recapping the sounds through different activities. I will also attach a few different games that you might want to print off and make up then you can continue to practise over the summer holidays or you can access the games on phonics play smiley


Today we want you to..

Can you write the words down and then put them into a sentence?




Last week we read the story of Pippety Skycap. Some of you then made your own pixies.


Read the fact file about Pippety Skycap again. Can you create a fact file about your own pixie?





Think about your pixie’s name, age and where your pixie lives. Then can you think about what their favourite things are.


You can complete the fact file below or you can just write your own. I can’t wait to see them.

Blowing bubbles is super fun! In this lesson, we are going to use observation skills and testing to discover how to make the best bubbles.

Discover the science of bubbles with the Science Museum Group




Activity 1 Bubble fun

This activity from the Science Museum Group uses their special bubble recipe and some ideas about how you can create your own brilliant bubble blowers. This can get messy, so it’s best to try it outside!

Think and talk about:

  • how many different things do you notice about the bubbles?
  • why do you think the bubbles are round?
  • what makes the bubbles burst?


  • can you make a really big bubble?
  • can you invent a new type of bubble blower?
  • do certain materials make better bubble blowers than others?
  • which bubble blower makes the best bubble? What makes it so good?


Activity 2

Bubble mix activity

Which recipe makes the best bubble mix?

For this activity from the Science Museum Group you'll need dish soap, water, three cups and a pipe cleaner.


Step 1 - In one cup, put five tablespoons of water and one tablespoon of dish soap and gently mix

Step 2 - In another cup, put three tablespoons of water and three tablespoons of dish soap and gently mix

Step 3 - In the last cup, put one tablespoon of water and five tablespoons of dish soap and gently mix

Step 4 - Take your pipe cleaner and gently bend the end into a loop. Dip the wand into one cup and try blowing bubbles. Repeat for the other cup


We would love to see if you managed to make some bubbles!
