Good Morning Everyone!
Good Morning boys and girls, I hope everyone had a lovely relaxing weekend and are ready for all of this week’s home learning tasks.
Let’s start the week as we mean to go on…Let’s get moving! This is one of my favourite songs..
At 11am today the crew at Fischy Music are running another live assembly. Use Youtube ( with the help of an adult) to join in and maybe you will recognise some of the songs we sing in assembly or class. Below is a link to help you find it.
Follow the link to the Oxford Owls ebooks page – https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/ and log in using username – deans12 password – mrsstevenson
This week’s book is ‘Everyone Got Wet’
Before reading the book, here are some questions to ponder.
- Can you predict what the book will be about?
- What do you think is happening on the front cover?
- Who will be the main characters in the story?
- Where is the story set?
- What do you think the big green container on the cover is for?
- Is everyone wet? why not?
With the help of an adult, read the story out loud. Remember all the things which a good reader does.
- Follow the words with our fingers
- Use the pictures for clues
- Looks for words or sounds which we recognise
- Knows what to do if we get stuck at a word
Once you have finished reading the book you can have a go at the online play activities which go alongside the book. Good luck and have fun.
Finally, have a go at phonics bloom – yes/no yeti game
https://www.phonicsbloom.com/uk/game/yes-no-yeti?phase=3 Read the sentences and answer yes or no to the questions.
The new sound this week is th – there are lots of th activity worksheets in your packs to help you learn all about this sound. Don’t forget to use them in addition to any activities I add on here.
I always call this the cheeky clown sound because you have to stick your tongue out a little to make the sound!
Here is the jolly jingle to go with the sound.
Can you think of any th words? Look around you, are there any objects which contain this sound?
Here is Geraldine, to give you a hand…
We need to be really careful not to get tricked out by this sound. It sounds very similar to f… but can you tell the difference?
Have a go at saying both these sounds out loud using the picture below. Try and feel the ‘cooling’ and think about where you feel it, on your lips or your teeth.
Now have a go at writing some words containing this sound. Have an adult read them out to you. Listen carefully.

We have been focusing on Friendships and how to be a good friend to others. I want you to have a look at the statements below and chat about them with an adult.
Do you agree with all of these statements?
Can you make your own list of what makes a good friend?
