Home Learning Plans
Week Beginning: Monday 6th July 2020
Dear Willow Class parents/carers and children,
The core learning for this week is set out below.
- All children should read an age appropriate text for a minimum of 20 minutes per day. This can be a reading book or sharing a picture book with an adult. When completing guided or supported reading of an age appropriate text, focus on factual questioning. Use the factual section of this questioning tool to generate questions that challenge your child to recall what has happened in the story.
- When did the character go to the shops?
-What did they do next?
-Who is in the shop?
-Where are the characters going?
- You can also visit the Oxford Owl website. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/
This week’s phonics work will concentrates on alternative spellings for the ‘oo’ and ‘yoo’ sounds.
Below are some activities that you could use for phonics/spellings. Remember, each day you can continue to explore the letter sounds by using chalks, magnetic letters, playdough or you could write them in flour, sand or with a pencil. You could play a game of “snap” or “pairs” with the sounds you have learnt so far.
