Morning Reception Class smiley,


I hope you all well, staying safe and still smiling.


What beautiful weather we are having! I hope that you all managing to enjoy some of the lovely weather. I have seen some lovely photos on Tapestry of some of you going on sunny walks, looking for different insects and flowers. Keep sending me any work that you do. I love to see what you are doing at home! All of your pictures make me smile smiley! I miss you all lots! 


Here are the challenges for today:-


1. Phonics - Have you been watching the 5 minute fun Phonics lessons? There is another one this morning at 10am on 5 minute fun facebook page. You may wish to watch and join in if you like. smiley


Next, have a look at these pictures and words in the document below. Ask an adult if they can print and cut them out for you. How quickly can you match the pictures up with the correct word?





If you don't have a printer. Then, have a try at the game below:-


Click on 'Make a match game Phase 3 sh ch th ng'. Can you read the words and match them up with the correct picture?


Today, we are learning two more new tricky words. They are 'little' and 'one'. Ask an adult if they can write them on a piece of paper so that you can learn them. Then, play a quick game with an adult. If they hold up the word 'little', then crouch down on the floor and if they hold up the word 'one', then put one arm up in the air. You can choose different actions if you prefer. Give yourself a point for every word that you read correctly. How many points can you score?


Can you practise writing 'one' and 'little'? Can you write these words from memory using a pencil, felt tip pens, chalk, crayons etc?


Then, have a try at pages 56 and 57 in your Phonics CGP book. Can you spot the tricky words that you have learnt today?
