I hope you all managed to have a nice weekend and found things to keep busy with. Have you been doing Joe Wickes live on You Tube every day at 9am? If not it’s a great start to the day and certainly wakes you up. I have been joining in as much as possible.
A huge thank you for all the fantastic pictures you have emailed and pictures and videos sent in on 2build a profile so far, it is lovely to see what you are busy with at home. Keep them coming – they certainly brighten up my day.
The weather doesn’t look so great this week and is definitely colder. Start collecting some junk modelling – cereal boxes, yoghurt pots, egg boxes etc as I will be setting some Easter craft making challenges later in the week. It’s a wet start today so a day to do some inside activities.
Todays challenge for Literacy is:
Can you do an alphabet scavenger hunt around your house? You could write the alphabet letters on scraps of paper. FS2 you could also write as many words as you can beginning with that sound.
FS2 Phonics – Please keep recapping all phase 2 and phase 3 sounds. There were just 3 sounds left of phase 3 that I hadn’t taught yet – ‘air’ as in ch-air chair, ‘ure’ as in m-a-n-ure manure and ‘er’ as in r-u-bb-er rubber. Please spend time with the children looking at these sounds – there are lots of activities on Twinkl home learning phase 3 and also some great phonics sound videos on You Tube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNcBWSBxSp0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vU2vWZKS7rY
