(Wk 4) 11.05.20

Please look at the 'Activity Ideas' tab for some new ideas of things to do with your children, this week.

New Phonics and Phonics Revision Resources are attached below.

Here is your Week 4 challenge that we would like you to complete by Friday 15th May and put up on Tapestry for us to see.

We would like you to read and then use some High Frequency Words and some Common Exception words (we also call them ‘tricky words’) to write sentences.

Children: First read these tricky words. Remember that they don’t always sound like they look! Then when you are ready to write your sentences, remember that

  • a sentence always begins with a capital letter

  • Use finger spaces in between each word.

  • End your sentence with a full stop.

We would like you to write some sentences using the words, the, not, I, go, no, into. That means 6 different sentences!

As an extra challenge, we are attaching a High Frequency Word mat so that, if you want to, you can have a go at reading all the words on the sheet! If there are some that you are not sure of, ask someone at home to help you or to give you a clue.

Adults: please try and allow your children to read the words provided on their own before you help them. If they are struggling, remind them that ‘tricky words’ (common exception words) don’t always sound the way that they look. That’s what makes them tricky! Once your child is confident of these six words, your child should then try and write a sentence containing each one. You could do this in chalk outside, with pencil or pen on paper, on a whiteboard - if you have one - or whatever writing materials you may have that come easily to hand. You might need to support your child by suggesting some ideas for their sentences 

Here are some examples:

Pat the dog; I can wash the car; Hop on the path.

I am not five, yet; It is not hot; Dad is not sleeping.

Can I go to the shop?; I have a red hat; How can I get to the park?

I go to the shop; Can I go to the park?; Me and mum go to the shop.

There is no rain; There are no cookies; No one saw the cat.

I went into the room; He ran into the park; I put the pegs into the box.

If you have time, see if they can come up with some of their own. Please take a photo of your child’s work and upload it to their Tapestry account.
