Reading - Please let us know if you need any knew books added to your rising stars account.
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?
Look through the phonics sheet.
Activity 1 - sorting
Sort the words into the correct column according to the way the 'a' is pronounced. Say each word out loud to help you.
Activity 2 - reading
Read the sentence out loud - identify the 'a' word and which column you would sort it into. 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: Soup is a healthy kind of food. Write down the sentence using your phonics knowledge to help you.
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.
