Good Morning Brilliant Butterflies!

I wonder how many flowers you managed to identify last week? The little, yellow flowers on Friday were cowslips. I have some more for you this week so see if you can spot them if you go out for a walk.

What are these flowers called?



Have fun playing ‘Sentence Substitution’ on the PhonicsPlay website.

Choose a sentence and be a digraph detective to help you read it. Then choose some words to swap so that the sentence would still make sense. Have you made a new sentence or is it nonsense?!

You can select Phase 3 or 4. Choose your own level of challenge.


Things to remember to be a good reader...

- 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.

- Check that it makes sense!



Brain warm up: Choose a way to warm up your brain by recalling Phase 3 sounds: You could use your own flahcards or the PhonicsPlay website ‘Flashcard Speed Trial’ or ‘A Giggling Grapheme’.


Phase 4 learning: Use the sheet below to try saying the consonant clusters (two or more consonants next to each other) on the sheet and read the words. Which sounds and words did you find difficult?

(Or if you prefer using the phonics games on the computer then find a phase 4 game to play)

Maths: Sharing equal groups


Follow the link to take you to the Oak Academy maths lesson.

You will need 10 objects for counting.


**Practice sharing equal groups with a teddy/toy or a member of your family using objects**

**If you want extra challenge then record your sharing using part-part-whole**


Follow the link below to access the Oak Academy Lesson 'Making Porridge'

You will need a pencil, paper, a bowl, spoon and a teddy talk partner.


**Today, you will write a recipe for making porridge. **


How to write a recipe:

  • Draw pictures in order to show what to do.
  • Number your pictures so the reader knows what order to do them in.
  • Label your pictures or write a sentence for each.
