Reading

Please make sure that you read every day to an adult and discuss the text.

You could read anything from your house - books, comics, cereal packets, tv subtitles.

Don't forget that you have access to Rising Stars reading planet where you will find the same books that we normally send home (this will be another way for us to know that you are engaging with school work).  If you have forgotten your log in details then please do get in touch.

Oxford Owls is another great website with a wide range of books at different levels https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/ 

You could also have a go at the reading challenges we posted here: https://www.galleyhill.herts.sch.uk/remote-learning-8/  - can you tick them all off by the time we return to school?

 

Phonics

Look through the phonics sheet.  

Activity 1 - reading 

Read through the words on the sheet.

Activity 2 - reading

Read the sentence out loud.  Remember to break longer words into smaller more manageable chunks to help you sound them out if they are a bit tricky.

Activity 3 - dictation writing

Ask someone in your house to say this sentence to you: I want a watch for my birthday.  Write down the sentence using your phonics knowledge to help you.

Activity 4 - revisit different sounds

Can you remember all these different sounds?  

Read them all out loud then check if you are right by watching the video of me saying them:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H37ftI4n1rU

You DO NOT need to print this sheet, you can complete your work on a whiteboard (just like we do in Phonics lessons) or into your book.
