Good Morning Year 1,


Thank you for all you great work yesterday! Did you like seeing what Dickie was up to?


Let’s see how many of you can complete today’s activities. Remember to show me what you have been doing.


Mrs E


To start today's phonics please can you recap all of 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.




Today we want you to look at the sound 'ey' like in monkey, 'ea' like in bead, 'ee' like in see and 'e_e' like in theme.



Can you read and sort these words? (if you want to write them you can)


monkey        bead         see         these              

trolley         steam       feet         complete            

honey          teacher     sheep       even

turkey         treat        wheel       delete


We may have done some of these words before but it is always good practise.


Write the words on flash cards and sort into the column with the correct digraph.











Can you write up to 3 of these words into a sentence. 

Or can you play Buried Treasure and practice the sounds?



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