Thursday 18th June

 

Good morning Year 1,

 

Thank you for all your lovely work yesterday.

 

Here are today’s tasks.

 

Mrs E

Phonics

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 ‘ch’ grapheme.  Can you read these words?

 

church, chick, crunch, pinch, chirping, school, chemist, chord, chorus, technical, chef, chalet, brochure, machine

 

Use these games to practice the alternative pronunciation of the 'ch' 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.

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

Summer Term week 7: Lesson 4 – Count in 10s

 

 

  • Please watch the video to support your understanding.
  • Try the sheet below.
  • Check your work against the answers (attached below).

Literacy

 

Literacy – Writing questions – Following on from Yesterday

 

To write questions and identify them in writing.

 

Learn

 

Think about the video you watched yesterday. You can identify questions in writing because they always end with a question mark.

Questions often start with 'W' words: Who, What, When, Where and Why. But, questions can also start with lots of other words. Here are some examples: Can, Could, If, Will and Should.

 

Yesterday we looked at Activity 1 and 2. Let’s try activity 3

 

Activity 3: Writing some more questions

 

Write up to six questions. Once you've written your questions you can ask people in your house to see if they know the answer.

 

  • The questions can all be about anything. It might be something you've learnt recently or something you want to learn.
  • Make sure you use capital letters and question marks.
  • Try and start each question with a different word.

 

Topic (Wednesday and Thursday)

 

 

Today and yesterday we are finding out about Water Safety. Think about what you learned by watching the videos on Tuesday and Wednesday. Can you play the games to find out what you know? Can you write a poster to help people stay safe around water.
