Tricky words challenge - this week are focusing on the phase 4 tricky words.
have / said / like / when / what / some / come / little / one / were / there
Choose some of the words, write them down on paper and hide them around the room. Can your child find them and read them to you? Turn the words over and choose one at a time - if you can read it you can keep it. How many points can you get?
Using the phonics packs practise writing the tricky words down - how many can your child write in one minute?
We started looking at poetry on Monday. We focused on the poem of 'The Magic box' by Kit Wright.
As you can see this poem has different verses that begin with a repeated phrases 'In the magic box I put'. In each verse the author puts 3 different things. We are going to write a poem called 'In the winter box'. Our poem will consist of some verses and in each verse we will again put in 3 different things. Can you discuss with your child what 'Winter' things are. Your challenge is to go for a walk or to just go outside in your garden/on your front and explore winter. What can you see? What can you hear? How do you feel? Make a list of 'winter words'. You might choose to use 'nouns' and 'adjectives' to create a simple expanded noun phrase, e.g. a woolly hat / crunchy snow. We will aim to use some of these words in our poem later in the week. Try to think of 6 different winter things.
If you go on to white rose home learning, click on Year 2 Multiplication and follow the links to the videos. We have been looking at making equal and unequal groups and identifying the totals by counting in groups of 2. 5 and 10.
If you click on the following link, it takes you to BBC super-movers website. On here there are some brilliant videos to help the children learn their 2, 5 and 10 times tables that are getting the children up and active. Please take a look and see whether the children can sing and dance along.
Any questions, please feel free to send me a dojo message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Many thanks for your support.
