Lolly Activity - Maths
Fill in the missing gaps in the part whole models.
Focus Activity - Phonics
During the morning briefing the children will flick through previously taught digraphs, trigraphs and tricky words.
In this game a grown up reads the word and the children find the correct phonemes and make the word. For example, if I said the word ‘term’ they would find the ‘t', 'e', ‘r’ and 'm' and put them in the correct order to make the word.
To be able to do this at home with your child we would like an adult to read the word, your child should then be able to hear the sounds and either write the word down or use the a-z phoneme cards to find the sounds they need to use. Please make sure your child knows what the word means. For example, after you have said ‘girl’, put it into a sentence “The girl was playing tennis with her friends.”
term – firm – fir – first – burst – burn – turn – turf – surf – sir – her – herb – verb - curb – curl – girl.
