"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Week 4 (25.1.21)

Monday

 

Today we're looking at the sound 'ou' like in the words 'shout' and 'out'. Can you think of any other words with this sound in? Watch the 'ou' 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. mouth 
  2. Think of a sentence with your chosen word in e.g. I shut my mouth.
  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:

Try to include joining words (conjunctions) in one or more of your sentences for a gold star!

(because, and, but, or)

Tuesday

Over the last few weeks we've learnt about suffixes. Remember, these are a group of letters that can be added to the end of a word and it changes the meaning of that word. We recently looked at the suffix -ing, which we noticed that when added to the end of a verb (doing word) it shows us that an action is happening in the present tense (something happening now). Today we're looking at the suffix -ed. When -ed is added to a verb it shows us that an action has already happened in the past - we call this the past tense.  Go through the slides below to learn more about the suffix -ed.

Then choose one of the activities below to complete. Feel free to print or copy sentences into exercise books/onto paper.

Wednesday

Questions:

 A question is a sentence that asks something and that needs an answer.

There's a big difference between a statement (telling someone something) and a question (asking someone something).

For example...

Statement: It's cold outside.

Question: Is it cold outside?

 

When we are writing questions, we always start with a question word and must always end the sentence with a question mark, instead of a full stop.

A question mark looks like this... 

 

 We're going to have a go at writing some questions today! We've read lots of books by the author Julia Donaldson but we don't know much about her! (Remember, an author is someone who writes books). I'd like you to think of 3 questions that you could ask Julia Donaldson.

 

Below are some documents to help with the activity:

When you've done this activity, have a look through the slides below which have lots of information about Julia Donaldson. You might find the answer to some of your questions here!

Thursday

Today we're looking at the sound 'oy' like in the words 'toy' and 'enjoy'. Can you think of any other words with this sound in? Watch the 'oy' 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. toy
  2. Think of a sentence with your chosen word in e.g. The boy got a toy for his birthday.
  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:

To get a gold star, can you make one or more of your sentences a question and remember to use a question mark instead of a full stop. I've loaded some useful/question words you could use.

Friday

Listen carefully to the story being read aloud once more. Then have a go at reading the statements on the document I've uploaded, and decide whether they are true (correct) or false (incorrect). 

Feel free to print and work onto the sheet or number the questions in your exercise book/paper and write true or false next to the relevant number.
