"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Week 2 (01/3/21)

Monday

 

Today we're looking at the sound 'u-e' like in the words 'huge' and 'brute'. Can you think of any other words with this sound in? Watch the 'u-e' speed sound lesson below to practice, then work your way through the numbered steps.

 

  1. Decide which word you want to write about e.g. huge
  2. Think of a sentence with your chosen word in e.g. The brown tree is huge.
  3. Say the sentence lots of times to yourself to help you remember it (you can even say it in silly voices like we do in Phonics)
  4. Have a go at writing it out (use Fred fingers to help you spell and sound out)
  5. Look at what you've written - read it back to check it makes sense and it has capital letters, finger spaces and full stops in the correct places (the children should be used to checking their own work using the prompts at the bottom of the template sheet)

 

Gold star challenge:

Can you join up your handwriting for a gold star? Remember, we don't need to join capital letters.

Tuesday

The author, Michael Rosen, uses lots of adjectives in the story 'We're going on a bear hunt'. Remember, adjectives are describing words - they describe what things might look, sound, smell, feel or taste like!

Read the following description of the bear...

 

One shiny wet nose!

Two big furry ears!

Two big goggly eyes!

IT'S A BEAR!

 

Michael Rosen has used two adjectives to describe each noun here! Can you choose a different animal and write a description similar to the one above?

I've uploaded photos of a few animals for ideas and also an example description of a giraffe for support.

You could either print a picture of an animal out or draw an animal, then write your sentence next to it.

Wednesday

Read through the slides below and watch the short BBC video clip to learn about what exclamation marks look like and when we can use them in our writing!

Then have a go at one of the exercise sheets. Feel free to print and work directly onto the sheets or write sentences and answers out into exercise books/onto paper. 

Thursday

Today is World Book Day! What does that mean?

 

World Book Day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading. It is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. 

The first World Book Day in the UK and Ireland took place in 1997 to encourage young people to discover the pleasure of reading.

Spending just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their future success and it’s fun for all involved.

That’s why World Book Day continues to encourage children and young people to read for pleasure through its work with authors, illustrators, publishers, bookshops and libraries.

 

Let's celebrate World Book Day! See below for links to activities, videos and more:

Read your favourite book then tell me about it by writing a book review! 

Friday

Today we're looking at the sound 'aw' like in the words 'yawn' and 'dawn'. Can you think of any other words with this sound in? Watch the 'aw' speed sound lesson below to practice, then work your way through the numbered steps.

 

  1. Decide which word you want to write about e.g. yawn
  2. Think of a sentence with your chosen word in e.g. I saw her yawn because she was tired.
  3. Say the sentence lots of times to yourself to help you remember it (you can even say it in silly voices like we do in Phonics)
  4. Have a go at writing it out (use Fred fingers to help you spell and sound out)
  5. Look at what you've written - read it back to check it makes sense and it has capital letters, finger spaces and full stops in the correct places (the children should be used to checking their own work using the prompts at the bottom of the template sheet)
