Happy Fact I love this one! Every year, millions of trees grow because squirrels forget where they buried their acorns. Go squirrels!
Now, let's get started on today's work.
Today I'd like you to brush up on your phonics! How many of the sounds do you know? Take a look at the phonics phases 2 - 5 link below. Test yourself without the pictures......there shouldn't be any hesitation. Then practise the ones that are not on the 'tip of your tongue'.
**Remember** do not to add an 'uh' sound on letters such as b, c, d, f etc. For example the letter f doesn't sound like 'fuh'.
*The national expectation is that all of these sounds are known/secure by the end of Year 1 - no pressure!
Phonics phases 2 - 5
Mark your answers from yesterday, then complete the Flashback 4.
First it's your weekly spelling test!
Ask an adult to test you on your spellings. They should say the word, then say a sentence with the word in it and repeat the word. e.g. edge. That knife has a very sharp edge! The word is edge. Good luck!
Afterwards, practise any words that you have got wrong. (I will do random checks of these words when we are back in class because they are tricky). So don't worry!
GOAL: to spell common exception words correctly.
Today's English work is a Spelling task. The texts are based on the common exception words for Year 1 and Year 2. I have attached the list of common exception words for Years 1 and 2 (below).
Mr. Whoops has accidentally made some spelling mistakes! Read through Activity 1. Your task is to highlight or underline the words that you think have the incorrect spelling, then write a list of the words that Mr. Whoops needs to learn. When you write the words, they need to be the correct spelling. Use the common exception word list to help you if you are not sure of a spelling.
Try Activity 2 as an extension.
