We will be using several songs from YouTube to help children with their learning and will provide these in some of our weekly lessons. We check these, before links are provided for use. Please be aware that when your child is using the YouTube links they need adult supervision as this site has age restrictions and, as a result, should not be used independently by your child,
Many thanks,Mrs Badhan and Mrs Christie
Week commencing 21/9/20
This week we are learning a new sound each day and on Friday we will revise all the sounds we have learnt. We are also learning three tricky words.
This week we are focusing on learning the sounds I, n, m, d.
We are also introducing Tricky Words
What is a Tricky Word?
Tricky words are those words which cannot be sounded out. If you sound them out and try to blend the sounds, the word will not sound right. They are words that must be recognised by sight and memorised.
This week we are learning the tricky words:
I no go
1. Ask your grown up to write these words on flash cards to help you practise them.
2. Watch the Tricky words Phase 2 fun video with a catchy tune on YouTube to help you.
Monday: Watch Geraldine the Giraffe on YouTube teach the i sound. Play I Spy games at home. Go on a hunt for objects beginning with the i sound. Practise writing the i sound in the air. The sound i is a bouncy sound. Try saying i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i
Tuesday: Watch Geraldine the Giraffe on YouTube teach the n sound. Go on a hunt for objects beginning with the n sound. N is a stretchy sound. Have a go at saying the nnnnnnn sound. Practise writing the nnn sound in the air, on paper, painting it etc
Wednesday: Watch Geraldine the Giraffe on YouTube teach the m sound. Play I Spy games at home. Go on a hunt for objects beginning with m sound. the sound m is a stretchy sound. Try saying it. mmmmmmm. Now practise writing it.
Thursday: Watch Geraldine the Giraffe on YouTube teach the d sound. Go on a hunt for objects beg with the d sound. The sound d is a bouncy sound d-d-d-d-d-d-d
Friday: Today have a mixture of objects beginning with the sounds learnt all week and see if you can sort them into piles of objects beginning with the sounds I, n, m, d.
Have a look around and about. Can you see the sounds i, n, m, d in the environment?
Extension: With your grown up, look through a catalogue: what can you find that begins with these sounds? Make a scrap book and stick in pictures on each page with toys/items beginning with these sounds.
Well done. Remember you can send us pictures of your work on Tapestry. We look forward to seeing you back at school very soon.
