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 Christie and Mrs Badhan
Week commencing 28/9/20
This week we are learning two new sounds. We are also practising the three tricky words we learnt last week -I, no, go.
You will also need to keep practising the sounds we have learnt so far:
s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d
Watch Geraldine the Giraffe on YouTube teach the 'g' sound. Play I Spy games at home. Go on a hunt for objects beginning with the 'g' sound. Practise writing the 'g' sound in the air. The sound g is a bouncy sound. Try saying g-g-g-g-g-
Watch Geraldine the Giraffe on YouTube teach the 'o' sound. Play I Spy games at home. Go on a hunt for objects beginning with the 'o' sound. Practise writing the 'o' sound in the air. The sound 'o' is a bouncy sound. Try saying o-o-o-o-o-
Look for pictures of things beginning with ‘o’ and ‘g’ in magazines/comics. Cut them out and make an 'o/g' collage. Draw the letters in some glitter or sand.
Georgie’s gym- use a soft toy and pretend the toy is talking in ‘sound talk’. Give your child instructions using sound talk e.g Stand u-p, put your hand on your kn-ee-s, put your finger on your n-o-se, wiggle your f -oo-t etc
Can your child give you some instructions?
Practise the tricky words- I, no, go. Make some flashcards and play some games e.g. pairs, snap. Hide the words around the house and go on a word hunt.
Have a box of ‘g’ and ‘o’ objects or pictures. Play musical chairs. One chair with 'g' and one with 'o'. When the music stops the adult holds up an object. The child goes to the correct chair.
Watch Geraldine Giraffe again for 'g' and 'o' and any other letters you need to practise.
Play a sorting game with the letters you have learnt so far- match pictures/objects to the letters.
Well done. You have worked hard this week.
