Also if you go in to mini mash don't forget to save anything you do in your tray, just like when we are in school. I hope you are all keeping up with your reading on the oxford owl site.
Home Learning Suggestions.
Please visit www.phonicsplay.co.uk for daily practice of phonics.
As a class we have covered phase 2 and phase 3 so please revise these and use www.espresso,co.uk/login/Authn/UserPassword for phonic activities.
Go over any sounds your child is unsure of and try and sound out and write words contained in the espresso videos. Use Twinkl for worksheets related to the sounds they do not know.
Daily counting and ordering of numbers using espresso.
As a class we had recently started looking at money and coin values. Why not set up a home shop paying with pennies and some silver coins.
For topic we were going to start growing sunflowers, if you were in last Thursday I gave the children some sunflowers to grow. If you have any other seeds have a go at growing those instead.
Any questions please email me.
