Please let us know if you need any new books on your rising stars account and we will add those for you.
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 grapheme 'er' is pronounced. Say each word out loud to help you.
Activity 2 - Best Bet
Play ‘Best Bet’. Display the word list and discuss which columns
have most words. Some patterns are rare but some common
words (e.g. they) have rare spellings. Ask children if they can spot
a pattern (e.g. the ay grapheme occurs at the end of words)
Ask children to write a word not in the list containing the same
phoneme as some of the words listed (e.g. hay).
Where there are two possible spellings ask children to write the
grapheme they think is right and see what they think when they
have looked at it written down. Teach the correct spelling.
Activity 3 - dictation writing
Ask someone in your house to say this sentence to you: The farmer grows her crops. 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.
