You have worked incredibly hard with your Phonics this term!
There are a few blends left to learn, but as we only have one week to go I will leave it up to you on how you decide to learn them.
Here are all of the Phase 4 blends, the next blend is ‘sl’. You could make a list of words or pictures that have each blend in. I’m looking forward to seeing how many words you can think of!
Here are some extra Phonics activities to keep you busy:
Tens and Ones:
We are going to consolidate our understanding of teen numbers this week (11 to 19). We know that the 1 in a teen number means 10. Each teen number is 10 plus some extra ones. So, 11 is 10 + 1, 12 is 10 + 2 etc.
Here is a song to help you remember: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uedvwH6Ay18
This is called a whole part model. We put the whole number at the top in the big circle, and the two circles at the bottom are the parts that make up the whole number.
This is number 12 on the whole part model.
Can you make all of the teen numbers using the whole part model?
Have a go at writing each teen number as a number sentence like this:
10 + 1 = 11, 10 + 2 = 12.
Are there any other ways you could show teen numbers as a group of ten with extra ones?
Our final topic challenge for the ‘Growing Together’ topic is all about you. I would like you to think about yourself growing. You have already thought about how you grew from a baby to how big you are now.
Your challenge is to think about yourself as an adult! When you are an adult, you will be much taller and have lots of different responsibilities. What do you want to be like when you are an adult?
You could think about the job you would like to have, where you would like to be living, what you might wear, will you have your own family?
You could draw a picture of yourself as an adult and write some sentences explaining your choices.
You could dress up as your future job and tell me all about it in a video.
I’m looking forward to seeing your ideas!
