Extra Challenge– Create sequences for your family.  They can be based on addition, subtraction or the tables we have been working on.


L.I We are learning to spell unfamiliar words using our spelling rule.

A syllable is open when there is no consonant after the vowel. 

The vowel ends the syllable and therefore produces a long sound.  eg  ba/con

Can you clap out syllables whilst listening to the long vowel sound at the end of the first syllable?
