Talk about the ‘wh’ sound. Can you say the sound?  Can you write the sound? Play Buried Treasure (Phase 5 ‘wh’ sound) on PhonicsPlay   username:jan21    password:home. Can you read the words and say whether they are real or nonsense words? Put the real words in the treasure chest and the nonsense words in the bin. Can you write a sentence which includes one of the real words?


Maths- Today we are continuing to learn about subtracting not crossing 10. Watch the White Rose Maths video: Spr1.3.5 - Subtraction counting back (crossing 10) on Vimeo and then try completing the worksheet attached to this blog.

English- Today we would like you to write an animal fact file. An example of a fact file for a Painted Lady Butterfly is attached to this blog. You can either write a fact file for a frog using the attached template or you can choose another animal. Remember to include what type of animal it is, what it eats, where it lives and at least 3 fun facts.

Some information about frogs can be found using the links below:

It would be lovely to see a copy of your completed animal fact file.
