STARTING SCHOOL SEPTEMBER 2021: Please check back in the next few days for our prospectus and virtual tour

Week beginning 20 April

17th April 2020

 

Happy Easter! I hope you all had a fun time over the Easter holidays. The theme for next week's learning is Minibeasts and the new Home Challenge sheet is posted below.

 

In Phonics this week, we will be recapping on 3 digraphs (where two letters make one sound): sh, th and ch. It would be helpful to remind your child of the Jolly phonics song and action for each digraph and then help them to read and write words containing these sounds. Some of the CVC words you may wish to use are listed below, although I am sure you can think of many more!

 

sh

th

ch

ship

shop

shed

shell

fish

shock

cash

bash

hush

rush

them

then

that

this

with

moth

thin

thick

 

chop

chin

chug

check

such

chip

chill

much

rich

chicken

 

 

You will find lots of resources on Twinkl or Phonics Play websites which will further reinforce the learning of these sounds too.

 

For Maths, we have included a link to daily White Rose Maths lessons which are linked to the Julia Donaldson Book What the Ladybird Heard. We shared this book in school earlier in the year and I know many of you also have this book at home. Do not worry if you do not have a copy of the book as the activities can apply to many other animal books. On the website link there is a video as well as an activity page for each day.

 

Please share any learning you are doing on Tapestry and do contact us if you need any further help.
