Wed 3rd March 2021
Re-visit and review any sounds your child is not familiar with.
Some children have been assessed either remotely or due to the fact that they are in school as a child of a key worker. Anyone who has not been assessed will be tested after the 8th March.
Go to Google Classroom/Reception/Class works to access your daily phonics lessons for your child's group, for home learning.
The reception key worker children, in school, will access the same phonics lessons, for their particular group, each day.
Look at the Spring picture together.
What can you see?
Practise saying a full sentence about what you can see.
E.G. I can see the sun.
The sun is shining.
The butterflies are hovering.
The lamb is with the mummy sheep.
It is time for a picnic.
Encourage your child to write a sentence using their phonic knowledge to help them work out some of the letters they will need in each word. It doesn't matter if the word is spelt incorrectly. If they can say a word, then try to say the sounds that they can hear in that word and then try to write down some of the letters as they hear them, that is fantastic! Talk about a capital letter at the beginning with finger spaces between each word and a full stop to show the sentence has finished.
After they have had a really good try, model write the sentence with your child to show them how it is done.
Talk about the meaning of an observational painting. Look at the examples on this page.
Look at a Spring daffodil. Encourage the children to describe what they can see in detail focusing on the size in comparison to each part e.g. is the stem longer or shorter than the flower?
Is the middle of the flower the same shape as the stem or the petals?
Support the children with their own observational painting of a daffodil/s.
