St Paul's CofE Primary School

In your light shall we see light

Week Beginning: 30th March

Thursday 2nd April

 

REVISIT: Sing the alphabet song or look at an alphabet chart and say the names of all the letters of the alphabet. Practise all the graphemes (letters) learnt so far. You can use the letters from your challenge bag, or 'Flashcards' on Phonics Play. Practise all the 'tricky words' learnt so far using flashcards, or sing along to the tricky word songs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R087lYrRpgY&t=4s 

TEACH: We are revising the trigraph 'ure'. This can be a hard sound to distinguish, so think about the words 'mixture' or 'manure'! In RC, we do the action of stirring a mixture. RO'C mime giving 'your' box.

PRACTISE: Play 'Quickwrite' with these words:sure, pure, cure, secure, manure, mature, chair, year, hear, fair. You could write them on paper, in shaving foam, in flour or with water and brushes on a paving slab - it depends how messy you want to get!

APPLY: Play 'Yes/No' with the following questions: Do teeth feel sharp? Can a shark sit in a chair? Can a torch light up a porch? Is all hair fair? Will a farmyard be full of manure? Will the moon light up the night? Can you shear a sheep? Did you hear an owl hoot at night? Can a vet cure a sad cow?
Children read the question and then put thumbs up if the answer is yes and down for no. In RC, we also have an option for 'maybe' - thumbs point sideways at each other!

Wednesday 1st April

REVISIT: Sing the alphabet song or look at an alphabet chart and say the names of all the letters of the alphabet. Practise all the graphemes (letters) learnt so far. You can use the letters from your challenge bag, or 'Flashcards' on Phonics Play. Practise all the 'tricky words' learnt so far using flashcards, or sing along to the tricky word songs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R087lYrRpgY&t=4s 

TEACH: We are looking at the tricky word 'they'. Say the word 'they' together. What sounds can you hear? Say the
'th' sound and 'ai' sound. Now, write the word 'they' on a piece of paper. Underline 'th' - this is how we have learnt to write this sound. Now underline 'ey'. These letters are making the 'ai' sound and it's not how we usually write it - that's what makes it tricky! Read and say the word several times together.

PRACTISE: Play 'Countdown' with these words: fear, hear, beard, fair, hair, pair, near, year, chair. You could write them on a board or use the picture. How many words can you read in a minute? You could add more words to the list if you need to.

APPLY: Look at the captions - You could write them out or use the attached photo. Can you underline the tricky words in the sentences: They zoom near to the moon. Did they get to the dark lair? They can sit in the rocking chair.

TEACH: We are revising the trigraph 'air'. A trigraph has three letters joined together to make one sound. Our action for this sound is to wave your hands in the air as you say the sound. Try writing the 'air' sound in the air and on paper, then watch Geraldine looking for things featuring this sound in her house. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcHIX2xK--A&t=2s 

PRACTISE: Play 'Buried Treasure' using the resources from your home learning pack and make some new coins with these words on: air, hair, pair, hear, fear, year, gair, sair, kair, kear, zeard
You can make the coins yourself, or download the pdf and print them out.

APPLY: Look at the captions - You could write them out or use the attached photo – encourage your child to blend if they get stuck - then read the whole sentence together. Do I need to cut his hair? Put that pair of socks on the chair. He went back to his lair.
