Make sure they read each book three times to build up fluency and develop their comprehension.
These words cannot be sounded out as they are tricky words so the children have learnt to recognise them.

Ideas for encouraging a love of books and stories at home:
- Have children read their own storybooks with parents, siblings and other family members.
- Watch Cbeebies Bedtime Story https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b00jdlm2/cbeebies-bedtime-stories
- Act out the children's classic story of 'We're going on a Bear Hunt' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gyI6ykDwds
- Download audio books from Audible UK- they have made hundreds of children's titles free for as long as schools are closed!
- Download books from Oxford Owl eLibrary https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/
This week's writing activities for the children are linked to our topic of 'Superheroes!':
1. Draw a picture of your favourite superhero and label the different parts of their superhero costume
2. Create a WANTED poster for an evil villan, such as the Evil Pea from Supertato.
3.Write instructions on how to become a superhero.
4. Create your very own superhero- describe who you are, what your superpowers are and what costume you wear.
Try and complete one writing activity each week, but if the children wish to complete more than one then please do! Please feel free to upload pictures and videos to Tapestry for Miss Hossen to see!
Tips to help with writing:
Provide the children with a copy of the sound mat below.
Encourage the children to sound out the letters in words, e.g. mat > m-a-t
Give the children short movement breaks when they are struggling to concentrate.
Do not force it- we want to encourage a LOVE for writing, so if it's not working try another day.
*REMEMBER at this stage children write phonetically and this is what is expected of them!*
For example: Rabbits are black > rabits r blac
Remind your child to use their tripod grip when writing!
