Tuesday 12th Jan - a-e sound
Practice reading a-e words. This is a great game to help with that. Follow the link. Click start – phase 5 – then select the a-e sound. Children read the word and select treasure if it is real and bin if it isn’t.
If you don’t want to use the screen you could write out some words and ask children to sort them that way.

Recap i-e sound (play Mr Thorne video again if you would like to).
Ask the children to write some i-e words onto pieces of paper (about 6 or 7) . Then hide them around the house/room/garden for the children to find and if they read them correctly they keep the word if it is incorrect the adult gets the word. The winner is the one with the most words!

Look, say, cover, write, check is a method of learning spelling, where children:

• Say it aloud a few times
• Cover it up with a piece of paper or their hand

Verbally give them some e-e words to segment and write down. If you want a diversion from pen and paper feel free to find some creative ways to write them down! e.g. in a plate of sugar or flour, shaving foam, mud, paint. I look forward to seeing the pics!
Mon 25th Jan
Sentence dictation activity. Read the attached sentences and ask your child to write them down. I usually say the sentence and then get the children to repeat it back to me. They then keep saying it as they write it down. I encourage them to remember finger spaces between words, Capital letter at the start and full stop at the end.
