"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Week 6 (8.2.21)

Monday

Today we're looking at the sound 'oi' like in the words 'coin' and 'soil'. Can you think of any other words with this sound in? Watch the 'oi' 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. coins
  2. Think of a sentence with your chosen word in e.g. I have lots of gold coins.
  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 use conjunctions (joining words) in any of your sentences for a gold star?

(because - or - and - but)

Tuesday

We've recently learnt about suffixes. Remember, these are a group of letters that you can add to the end of a word to change it's meaning! We have looked at adding '-ed' and '-ing' to the end of verbs to change them to things that are happening in the past or things that are happening in the present (now).

Today we're going to look at a group of letters that are added to the beginning of a word (instead of the end) and these are called prefixes.

Read through the slides below to learn about the prefix -un! Then have a go at one of the exercises below (choose an activity that most appropriately challenges your child). You can copy/write these out into exercise books/onto paper or feel free to print the sheets out and work directly onto these. 

Wednesday

Today we're looking at the sound 'a-e' like in the words 'cake' and 'spade'. This is a different kind of special friends as the letters aren't side by side/next to each other like normal - instead there is another letter in-between that splits them up. E.g. in the word 'cake' the letter between a-e is 'k'. Can you think of any other words with this sound in? Watch the 'a-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. cake
  2. Think of a sentence with your chosen word in e.g. Can you bake me a cake?
  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 turn your sentences into questions? Remember to start with a question word and add a question mark at the end.

Thursday

Look carefully at each picture on the sheet below and write about what you can see:

 

Who (name and describe the character you can see)

What (write what are they doing or what is happening in the picture)

Where (name and describe the setting or place they are in)

When (write the time of day it might in the picture be or if you think it was a long time ago)

 

I've uploaded an example below. Try to write in full sentences into your exercise books/onto paper or feel free to print out the sheet and work directly onto this.

Friday

Today we're thinking about the book we read this half term - The Highway Rat! At the end of each storybook we read, we can do a review. This means we think about whether or not we liked the story and explain why. It's okay not to like certain books - we all have different interests after all : )

Use the template below to help you write your book review (you can write your sentences into exercise books/onto paper or feel free to print the template and work onto this). 

 

Don't forget to write:

-the title of the book

-summarise what the book is about

-who the main characters are

-where the story is set

-rate the book (colour in how many stars you think it deserves - the more stars you colour, the better you think the book is!)

-write what you liked about the book or draw your favourite part of the story
