Have a look at the picture, ask your child to describe what they can see focusing on them talking in a full sentence e.g. there is a pink house behind the park. Draw a picture of something you can see in the picture and have a go at describing it to someone in your family. 



Watch the video and discuss how you keep safe when crossing the road. Design your own road safety poster.

Phonics sounds of the day!


Mrs Clay's group

Revisit Review:  Recap sounds learnt so far s a t p i n d g o c k

Introduce the new sound ck Explain c and k work together and are 'special friends' making 1 sound ck (digraph = 2 letters making 1 sound).  Practise finding rhyming words.  Read a rhyme or story and find the rhyming words or practise saying 2 words eg cat and dog - do they rhyme?  or mouse and house?  The children need to know that the end of the words need to sound the same. You could use the Powerpoint presentation below to support.

Miss Plumb's group


Recap the sounds previously taught focusing in on c, k, ck, e, u, r. Learn the new sound 'b'. Sing the Jolly phonics song for this sound and learn the action. Continuing on with learning the skill of oral blending, have a go at a scavenger hunt around the house. Ask your child if they can find certain items talking like a robot e.g. can you find a c-oa-t and they would go and find it and bring it back to you.
