YR Wednesday 13th May

Good morning everyone!

Halfway through another week……..😊

Today we are looking at the blend ‘mp’. Write the words jump, lump, bump, lamp, camp, damp, clamp and stamp on a piece of paper and ask your child to write the sound buttons. Remind your child that the consonant blend will have a sound button under each sound as they are separate phonemes even though they are blended together when we read them. Encourage your child to read the words, ‘stretching the sounds and then blending them together.

Using the attached worksheet (which you can print or just use on screen) look at the picture. Discuss what can be seen in the picture and emphasise the words with the ‘mp’ blend that could be used when talking about the picture. Encourage your child to write about the picture. Wherever possible this writing should be as independent as possible. It is important that your child uses their phonetic knowledge to spell, however, you should encourage the correct spelling of the tricky words on their phase 2 and 3 wordlist (phase 4 for those going onto this stage)

Play ‘blending bingo’ and select game 14 cvcc. You can print out the bingo cards or copy them onto paper. Keep the spares so that you can practise this same game throughout the week or at a later date. 

To continue practising phase 3 sounds remember to use the following links: 

Reading; Read ‘On Nok’s Trail’ (yellow band) on Oxford owl 

Maths: Place Value Numbers to 20; Using the resources from yesterday, play the same game but instead of taking the cards in order, choose them randomly. Can your child make the number? Can they tell you if the number has any tens? Can they tell you how many ones it has? Is the number larger or smaller than the number before? How do you know? How can you check? (by building it)

Play counting caterpillar. Please make sure you change the largest number (red bar) to 20. You can start the smallest number at 0 or 10 (green bar) 

PSED/Art; Create an ‘all about me’ star (see photo). Talk to your child about themselves. What do they like? What don’t they like? What do they think they are good at? What do they find more tricky? What do they want to be when they grow up? Where is their favourite place? What is their favourite toy/colour/food etc?
Cut out a large star from a piece of paper. Either using a magazine which they can cut up or drawing pictures, illustrate your star to show things about you!

Understanding the World; Go on a bug hunt in your garden. What bugs can you find? What do you notice about where they like to live? Can you make a bug habitat? There are lots of ideas on the internet ranging from the very simple to more complex ideas. Where will you place it in your garden? What bugs do you think will like to live there? Go back at regular intervals throughout the week to see what bugs you have attracted. Perhaps you could find out a few facts about the bugs you find either in a bug book or on the internet.

Please remember you don’t have to do all of this today it is guidance throughout the week 😊😊
