Good morning Brilliant Butterflies!


I hope you have a great day of learning at home.


** Remember, your adult can upload any examples of the learning we set for you at home to Tapestry to share with Mrs Lilley, Miss Blake and Mrs Goodridge. We'll enjoy seeing what you've been up to and can make a comment back **


Here are the activities for the day...




READING: Please can you spend 10 minutes+ reading/ sharing books  (story or non-fiction) with an adult or older sibling. See the 'Reading weblinks' folder for Oxford Owl free online eBooks if you want some new ideas.


Key questions of the day...

Q. Is your book a story or non-ficton book?

Q. What characters are in the book?

Q. Where is the story set?

Q. What is your favourite part of the story? Why?


Things to remember to be a good reader...

- Look at front cover to work out the title.

- Can you find the author's name?

- Be a good digraph detective!

- Track words with your finger.

-  Look out for any tricky words you know how to read by sight.

- Use WORD BREAKDOWN to say when there's a word you don't understand or know what it means in the story context.



PHONICS - Use the interactive phonics game 'Dragon's Den' to practise spotting digraphs and blending to read words.

Decide if the words are a real word or made up word.




- Select PHASE 3

- Pick one of the digraph/ trigraph options that you find more tricky.

- Real words go to the green dragon.

- Made up nonsense words go to the red dragon


** You can use these interactive phonics games anytime you want during the week to practise your phonics blending skills as they are great fun! **





WRITING - So we hadn't quite finished sharing the Supertato series of books. That means you get to be an author and make up your own ending!


For the writing task today I would like you to imagine Supertato and the Super Veggies are preparing to capture Evil Pea and the pea gang.



Write a list of equipment they might need for this.  Remember to think about how you want Supertato to finally capture Evil Pea once and for all!


For example: rope, trap, net, torch...


Things to remember...

- Use numbers for your list

- Include any digraphs/ trigraphs

- 'Chop up' longer words to make sounding out easier

- Think about what family each letter belongs to for careful handwriting


** Sound mats and letter family formation sheets are saved in the 'Writing resources and weblinks' folder **



MATHS - We will be learning about shapes this week, so you will be a shape detective today! Look around your house for any flat 2D shapes.











Things to practise...

- How many corners does the shape have?

- How many sides?

- What type of sides?

- Can you give two clues about the shape using key vocabulary?



** Remember, these are known as the flat shapes **


Here is an interactive game you can have a go playing to make 2D shapes, pictures, patterns...
