Use your Jolly Phonics revision book and find the 'oi' page. Please listen to the 'oi' song on YouTube, sing together and do the 'oi' action (your child will be able to teach you this). Talk to your child about 'oi' words - point / boil / soil / join / coin etc. Complete the 'oi' page - handwriting of the sounds and then look at each picture below together and say each word. Cross out the picture that does not have the 'oi' sound. Please encourage your child to write each word beside the corresponding picture. They should be able to sound out each word. If you would like an extension for this activity, please ask your child to tell you / write a sentence using a 'oi' word or even a few 'oi' words if they're feeling super clever e.g. 'point to the coin in the soil'
Children can then neatly colour the pictures to complete. Again, if your child is struggling with this activity, do a little more oral work on this sound - talk about 'oi' words, over-exaggerate the sound, make up silly sentences and try writing some of the words together.
Activity two - Goldilocks and the Three Bears cutting skills and story retelling.
Read or tell your child the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Ask your child to retell the story to you in their own words. They could try to use different voices for the characters or maybe even come up with an alternative ending for the story. Once you have done this, complete the Goldilocks cutting skills activity that you will find at the bottom of the page. Talk about which toppings to put on each bowl of porridge
and cut and stick accordingly.
Activity three - Rhyming Odd One Out
Find the 'Rhyming Word Strips' at the bottom of this page. Read each word in the strip and identify which word does not rhyme. Put an 'X' through the one that does not rhyme. As an extension for this, you may ask your child to think of more rhyming words that could be added to each strip.
Activity four - Phonics revision booklet - word formation
Using your Phonics Revision Booklet, find the page with the bat / bus / bed / bag / crab and write the words on the lines below. Please focus on correct formation of the letter 'b'. Start at the top of the tall back, bring your pencil down, up and around for the belly. Colour neatly to finish.
Activity five - Revision of Jolly Phonics sounds
Using our phonics sounds, play 'Eye Spy...' with someone at home. Use the letter sounds rather than the names, e.g Eye Spy with my little eye, something beginning with 'sss'.
Once you have had a go at this, try a little bit of spelling dictation using your child's 'My Word Family Blending Practise Book'. On the next page, you will see 'it' words - bit / kit / sit / hit / spit. Give your child a blank page or whiteboard and call some of these words out to them and ask them to write them down. You may emphasise each sound in the word if your child finds this tricky. Provide lots of praise for good efforts even if the spelling isn't accurate. Once you have finished, check the words along with your child and if they have made some errors, gently sound it out with them and show them how we spell each of the words.
Again, as always, thank you so much for your support in your child's learning. It has been lovely to see some photos of your home learning. Our email addresses are just at the bottom of this page. Please do keep in touch with us and let us know how you are all getting on.
