Yr R Literacy for week commencing 22nd June

Phonics W/C 22nd June

Each morning, please can you begin your phonics session by re-capping the sounds. You can use the following game on phonics play https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/3/flashcards-speed-trials  Please choose phase 2 if your child is still learning the single sounds, phase 2 and 3 if your child is beginning to use digraphs or phase 3 if your child is already confident with the single sounds. Your child should say the sound (phoneme) of the letter or letters (grapheme) shown. You can click the tick if they get it correct or the cross if they get it wrong so that it generates a list to show you which ones need more practice.

Monday 22nd June
Today’s blend is ‘sm’.
Write the words smug, smell, smart, smash, smooth, smock and smear on a piece of paper and ask your child to draw the sound buttons. The digraphs ll, ar, sh, oo, th, ck and the trigraph ear will need a sound line.
Using the attached work sheet (which you can print or just use on the screen) look at the picture and discuss what can be seen. Emphasise words which could be used that have the ‘sm’ blend.
Ask your child to write about the picture as independently as possible using their basic code (letter line) to support them. Encourage them to think of one sentence at a time, beginning it with a capital letter and ending with a full stop. Encourage at least two sentences but more if your child is finding it easy.

Tricky words: Please continue to revise phase 2 and 3 tricky words. Your child needs to be secure with these words, Re-cap the words ‘so’, ‘do’, ‘when’, ‘what’, ‘said’, ‘have’, ‘were’, ‘there’, ‘out’, ‘one’, ‘like’ and ‘little’. If your child is fairly confident with these, add the words ‘some’ and ‘come’. You could write over them as rainbow words, play the floor is lava, shoot them with a water pistol or nerf gun, search for them in a book or a newspaper cutting or write them in chalk and brush over them with water to wash them away. You could also play ‘Tricky trucks’ on phonics bloom for phase 2, 3 or phase 4 tricky words. https://www.phonicsbloom.com/uk/game/tricky-trucks?phase=3  Or print and work through the tricky word booklets.

Handwriting: This week we will be practising the letters n, m, h and r. Again, you will need to start all letters on the line with a whoosh so that they sit nicely on the line. All of these letters have a ‘bridge’. Notice which letter is tall (h is a giraffe letter). All the others are short letters (turtle letters).

Reading:
This week’s reading activities:
Read a new or unfamiliar story and make predictions about the story. Look at the front cover and title. What might it be about? Read a couple of pages and ask what might happen next and why you think that might happen (linking to the child’s own experiences).

Don’t forget ‘Reading eggs’ or ‘Teach Your Monster to Read’.

On Oxford Owl please could you read the following books: The ice rink; https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/api/digital_books/1409.html  Everyone got wet; https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/api/digital_books/1357.html
