Good Morning Brilliant Butterflies!

Orange Tip Butterfly

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



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.


** Today, pick a book you're not familiar with and use the front cover with title and picture clues to PREDICT (crystal ball) what you think the book will be about **

Key questions of the day...

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

How do you know/ can you tell inside?

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





Look at the PowerPoint ‘What a plant needs to grow’.

Can you explain the job of the roots, stem and leaves in helping seed grow?

Roots keep plant firmly in the ground and absorb water.

Stem grows up towards sunlight and leaves grow on it.

Leaves absorb the sunlight to help the plant grow.


**Have a go at labelling the parts of a plant. If you want more challenge then write a sentence to explain the job of each part of the plant.**


Things to remember to be a good writer:

  • Think about your letter formation (use letter families poster)
  • Are there any phase 3 digraphs/digraphs you can use in the words? (You could use your phase 3 sound mat)
  • Any longer words, remember to chop them up into parts to make it easier to sound out for writing
  • Finger spaces needed between each word




Brain warm up: Use your own flahcards or the PhonicsPlay website ‘A Giggling Grapheme’ game to recall phase 3 sounds.


Phase 4 work: For the adult: today’s focus is CVCC words-consonant, vowel consonant, cosonant)

Ask your adult to say these words to you and you need to ty to write them down by listening carefully to the sounds:

land         nest        link          hunt 

        hand        gust          lift

*Take your time, count the sounds on your phoneme fingers and say the sounds out loud as you write. Can you read back your word to check it?*
