This activity to complete over the week.

If you have some bottle tops please could you write a  b  c  d  e  f  A  B  C  D  E  F on each top, then have a go during the week to match the small case letter to the capital letter. Explain to your child that they have a capital letter at the beginning of their name and when we write a sentence. Can you think of anyone that has one of these letters at the beginning of their name?


Mrs Garbett

Speed set 2 sounds are- ay  ee  igh  ow  oo   ar  or  air  ir  ou  oy

I know we have completed these sounds 3 times, but it is really important that these sounds are embedded. So your child can read, write and spell words with these sounds. There is plenty of time to complete speed set 3 sounds after speed set 2 sounds are completely embedded. However we will be writing more complex sentences and reading additional tricky words.

Sound-  igh (fly high).

Words- sight  flight  night  light

Words to read over the week- I  some  we  all  and  you. (HFW). am  can  tank  big  fish  swim  frog  pond  cat  cats  duck  ducks

 Sentence- Make the sentence easier if required.

Recap previous sounds.

We then repeat speed set 2 sounds as children need to have this embedded before commencing speed set 3.

New sound- air (That's not fair).

Words- hair  stair  chair  fair

Words to learn over the week- you  I  said  of (HFW). Cat  stop  dog  fish  had  pop  that  will  had  is

Recap previous words especially word time 6. If you feel your child cannot cope with this, please repeat and start at word time 2.

Sounds to focus on- w  th  z  ch  qu  x  ng  nk

Word time 7

Words to learn- wink  drop  frog

Words to learn for the week- dog  cat  hid  pot  ran  hot  sun  sat  but  then  the  no

(Your child might need help with the word likes). You might like to use this word as one of the HFW to learn this week.

(Please remember a capital letter at the beginning, tall, short letters, and a full stop at the end).

Don't forget the- high frequency words. Perhaps learn 3 or 4 a week and just keep recapping.

Fitness- Diary

In preparation for Sports Day, can you create a fitness diary over the week? Encourage your family to join in too. In your book you can write- On Monday I like to run. On Tuesday I like to hop. On Wednesday I like to jump etc. Draw some pictures of what you like to do. What exercise are you looking forward to doing after Lockdown? Try to spell as many words as you can on your own.


Creative- We will do this over 2 days, Wednesday and Thursday

I hope you have found out some interesting information about Kandinsky. The shapes he was most interested in were the circle, triangle and the square. Can you remember how many sides these shapes have? Which is you favourite shape? I like the triangle as it is the only shape that has 3 sides. Perhaps you could look on youtube to see some of Kandinsky's abstract paintings. Can you see how colourful they are? Can you identify any shapes in his paintings?

Let's paint like Kandinsky!!

Get a big piece of paper and encourage your child to create circles of various sizes. Colour the circles in. You can use paint, felts, chalks, pastels or anything really. Cut out the circles and glue the smallest circle over the biggest one to create a layering of circles. Each circle should have about 4/5 layers of different colours. Take your time doing this, it doesn't have to be done in one day as you child will become fed up. 



I am a flexible gorilla- Squat with your knees open, hands on the ground.

I am big and strong- Come up a bit and rest you elbows on your thighs.

I swing and hang loose- Straighten your legs and swing to the right.

My life is fun- Now swing to the left.

Have fun acting like a gorilla. Be silly and make gorilla sounds.

Enjoy how you feel after you've been swinging like a gorilla.
