Handwriting Lesson

Today in handwriting, we are continuing to practice writing the letters that belong to the 'Curly Caterpillar' letter family. Today we will focus on writing the letter s. As an extra challenge see if you can write some words beginning with the letter s. Click on the red link below to access the lesson video.


You all have the link to the lessons related to the sound sets that your child is learning. Your child also needs to look at the spelling videos as part of their phonics too. These have been shared with you. Start from lesson 1 of these videos and do 1 a day. They are working retrospectively, so your child should be starting to get familiar with the sounds they are being asked to spell with. If you cannot find your link or you have forgotten which sounds your child is learning please send me a message on Dojo.


Visit the Oxford Owl website to access their free e-library, which has Read Write Inc Phonics books to match where your child is at in phonics, and book banded books to match your child's school reading book level. You all have the login details for our class account to this site, but if you can't remember it please send me a message on Dojo.


You can also use books from your child's own book shelf for reading together, and you can now also join Earl Shilton's digital library. Don't worry if you're not a member of Earl Shilton Library, you can now join online. Just follow the link:

Physical Activity

For today's Literacy lesson we are going to leave Cinderella at the ball dancing with the prince, and we are going to read about her friend Snow White! I would like you to the read story below and then answer the questions. All of the questions are about what you have read, so if you are unsure of an answer go back and re-read the story. Try to read as much of the story as you can by yourself. Remember to use your sounds when blending words, and keep an eye out for those special friends. If you get really stuck ask your grown up at home to help you. Click on the red link below to access the video lesson.


If you are in Mrs. Oliver and Miss White's phonics groups (SET 2 Sounds) you need to do story 1, If you are in Mr. Wright's phonics group (SET 3 Sounds) you need to do story 2. Click on the story story links below to access your story and questions.


Today in Maths we are thinking about finding and making number bonds.

5 Minute Mindfulness Meditation

Well-Being Wednesday - Creative Science

For today's Creative Science, Mrs. Moore (our Science coordinator) has come up with a lovely challenge for you. You will need some tin foil and some 1p pieces (if you haven't got 1p pieces you could use something of similar size and weight). It's a very exciting challenge, and something that will get your creative and scientific brains ticking! Click on the red link below for the video lesson.
