Yr R Literacy for week commencing 29th June

Phonics W/C 29th 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 29th June
Today’s blend is ‘tr’.
Write the words trip, trap, trim, troll, track, train, trash and trick on a piece of paper and ask your child to draw the sound buttons. The digraphs ll, ck, ai and sh 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 ‘tr’ 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, When your child is secure with phase 2 and 3 tricky words, move on to the phase 4 words that have been introduced over the past few weeks. Play tricky word bingo for the phase your child is working at https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/hfwBingo/index.html  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. I have uploaded a ‘tricky word wall’ so that you can track which words your child knows. Please note the last 10 words are phase 5 words so your child is not expected to know these just yet. We would like them to be confident with phase 2 and 3 and to be beginning to recognise phase 4 words.

Handwriting: This week we will be practising the letters e, f, s and q. Again, you will need to start all letters on the line with a whoosh so that they sit nicely on the line. The first two of these letters start with a scoop. Notice which letters have a tail (f and q are monkey letters). 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 one of the following books: Jack; https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/api/digital_books/1285.html  (Red level book) The Rocket Flight; https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/api/interactives/13019.html  (Yellow level book) No tricks Gran!; https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/api/digital_books/1355.html  (Blue level book)

Print the captions and pictures matching activities for either phase 2 or phase 3. Encourage your child to read each caption independently. They can draw the sound buttons if it helps them. There are several pages so only do one at a time.

Don’t forget to keep watching at our ‘Story Time’ videos!
