Phonics

 

To get the children as ready for Year 1 as possible, it is important to keep up their daily phonics lesson. 

The phonics scheme we follow in school is providing a daily stream of a new sound per day. 

Each film will be available for 24 hours via FB and on YouTube.
Speed Sounds Set 1 – 9.30 am  (Recommended for Miss Turner, Miss Davison and Mr Tomlinson's groups) 
Speed Sounds Set 2 – 10.00 am (Recommended for Miss O'Kane and Miss Davison's group)

 

The programme have also set up a hotline for parents and carers helping children learning to read at home with Read Write Inc. Phonics. Please email homereading@ruthmiskin.com with any queries.

 

For an extra challenge, can you write some of the words you have read in today's session? Tweet @SuperstarsSTM!

Reading

Curl up and enjoy reading books together.  Enjoying books and reading stories from a very early age is crucial in the development of children. It helps with their ability to understand words, use their imagination and develop their speech, as well as being something they really enjoy.

Encourage your child to retell stories in their own words and use the illustrations in the books to help.

 

If you are struggling for engaging texts, there is a wealth of stories online. Try Youtube for stories read aloud. 

 

Some of our favourites are:

The Gruffalo                                     Oi Frog

Stickman                                         Not Now Bernard

The Tiger Who Came to Tea              Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?

Peace at Last                                   Wonky Donkey

The Large Family                              Dear Zoo

Owl Babies                                      Room on the Broom

Aliens Love Underpants                     Lost and Found

Whatever Next!                                The Very Hungry Caterpillar

                         and a range of traditional tales! 

 

Writing

Before school finished, we were making so much progress with our writing! Keep up the progress by writing some words mentioned in today's phonics session. Challenge yourself with a simple question such as "I am..." "I can see a ....".

 

We love finding and writing secret messages. Can you write some and hide them for your parents or brothers and sisters? Can they write one back? Please tweet them to @SuperstarsSTM

PE

Look after your physical and mental health during this time when we are out of our normal, daily routines. Join in with 'PE with Joe', a livestream PE lesson every morning Monday-Friday from 9am. During the first session, millions across the world joined in with the workout.

See you there! 

Happy Easter

I hope you are all enjoying the Easter holidays and managing to get out for a daily spot of exercise in this lovely sunshine.  Below are a few resources and links to keep you busy during the next couple of weeks.  Don't feel like you have to do something everyday as young children learn so much through their own play.  It is important to have some fun and follow your child's interests.  

 Home Learning Tasks

 

Hi everyone, due to this unprecedented time we will be updating tasks for children to do at home everyday. These tasks are to be completed along with the home learning pack that has been sent home with your child. 

 

If you have any queries, please see @SuperstarsSTM on Twitter, or e-mail contact@stmichaelscatholicprimary.co.uk for more information. 

 

Stay inside and stay safe.

-Miss O'Kane
