Reading/Writing activity on Microsoft Teams @9am
The phonics programme that we follow is Read, Write Inc. They are delivering 1 lesson a day from their youtube channel at 9.30 (this is available for 24 hours). During our Teams meeting we have started to learn set 2 sounds. If we were in class we would also split off for some children to revisit set 1. If your child struggles with knowing set 1 sounds ( the alphabet and sh,th,ch,ng,nk,qu) and use them to read words please watch the RWI lesson at some point as an addition. (If you’re not sure just ask – but it wouldn’t harm if you wanted to do this anyway and consolidate further). Also, if you would like to extend set 2, you could read/write some more words after the session. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ?mc_cid=71ef745098&mc_eid=c9705b8c67
Remember we need to do a few minutes of dough disco every day to get our finger muscles nice and strong! You can watch a youtube video, anything from ‘Spread the Happiness’ Youtube channel or simply put on 1 of your favourite songs and start doing some of the exercises you have seen on our meeting.
