Good morning everyone, we hope you have a lovely day 😊
Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons are on YouTube for children to watch at home from 9:30am and will be available for 24 hours. All films will be in separate categories on the YouTube channel.
I would suggest that you follow this link to review set 1 sound as your child will know these really well now; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCBzNnSSxds (turn off the sound so your child can say what they see).
Note; Keep asking your child to tell you the set 2 and 3 sounds in their home learning packs so that you know which sounds to practise.
You can use this website to play some fun phonics games https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/
Today we are going to create some questions that we could ask the farmer for a newspaper report.
Think carefully about what kinds of questions you ask the farmer. Remember that your reader will want to know all about the Farmer, who helped him and how he managed to grow such an enormous turnip. Your reader is unlikely to want to know what the Farmer’s favourite colour is!
Try to think of some of the answers to your questions as you could use this in your newspaper report tomorrow.
Continue to practise your 2, 3, 5 & 10 Times Tables. If you know you need to learn different times tables to enable you to fly from your country in the times tables trek, then I would continue practising those. Remember there are lots of games online you can use to help you. www.topmarks.com is great for this!
Today you will use your times-table knowledge to solve word problems.
Choose your level of challenge;
