Good morning my Dragonflies!
I hope you enjoyed the sunshine yesterday!
I hope you have a wonderful day today.
This is today’s learning. Please remember that these are only suggested activities, you don’t have to do them all or any if that doesn’t suit your child and your family circumstances:
Today our focus sounds are ee/ea
- Examples: bee, wheel, leek, tree, deep, sea, teach, meal, dear.
Be Geraldine, have a look around your house and see if there are any words featuring the ee/ea sounds.
More sounds powerpoints:
Please complete the attached ee/ea worksheets.
Mild: sort cards / cut and short (Choose one activity)
Spicy: ea ee
Please revise Block 1, 2 and 3 as well as the First 100 Fry words. Take your time, every child is at a different stage. Follow your child’s lead. Don’t rush, it is better to have few secured than all not consolidated.
- Please continue to use the tricky word power points.
- Challenge: If your child can read all of the words quickly and confidently test how well they can independently spell the tricky word when you read them out loud (just like dictation). Continue to practice your 100 fry words.
Today we are going to practice letter s, u and t from our home pack:
It is important that your child is sitting comfortably and in a good position when writing. Check the pencil grip.
Pencil grip video: I found this video very useful

Feel free to do letter/number formation using different writing materials, here are some fun ideas:
- Chalks on the ground outside.
- Make mud paint and paint the letters/numbers.
- Shaving foam on the side of the bathtub.
- Dye shaving form and put it in a try, use your finger as the pencil.
- Put sand or rice in a try, use your finger as the pencil.
- Use a feather to paint.
- Fill a food/sandwich bag with paint or salt and use your finger as the pencil.
- Write on play dough using a stick or the other end of a pencil.
- ‘Human Pencil and Paper’ game: draw letters/numbers on someone’s back or hand and see if try can guess what you have written
Write a new blurb for the back of the book. Use exciting words.
Lizards: The dragon balloon
Dolphins: Chicken Licken
Lions: The snowman
Cheetahs: The scarf
Challenge: Pirate adventure
I enjoy investigating objects and shapes and can sort, describe and be creative with them
- I can recognise, describe and sort common 2D shapes and 3D objects according to various criteria, for example, straight, round, flat and curved.
We are aware that we have done shape recently, but we thought it would be good to do a final review before the end of term.
Ask your child what she/he knows about 3D shapes. This will give you an idea of their knowledge in this area.
Power Point for 3D shapes:
- 3D shapes
- Everyday 3D objects
Now it’s time for you to go on a hunt around your house or garden to see what shapes you can find. You could also ask these questions:
- Which shape do you like best?
- Which are interesting shapes?
- Do any shapes remind you of something else?
- Why do you think an object has the particular shape it does?
- Which is the most common 3D shape you can see?
Power point name the shape
Mild: Sorting home objects by 3D shape or worksheet: Identify 2D and 3D shapes.
Spicy: Shape hunt activity sheet or Identify 2D and 3D shapes.
Hot: Identify 2D and 3D shapes
Challenge: can you find something that is made of more than one shape?
General ideas for the week are on Monday’s blog.
Have a Terrific Tuesday!
