We will still be encouraging children to read on a daily basis, whether that's on their own, to a parent or to a sibling!

This week’s writing task is to write a postcard to a friend or family member that you have missed. You need to tell the friend or family member what you have been doing at home. You can use the framework below. 
Spellings Activity
Complete either of the spelling activities below. 
Then use the Year 1 and 2 Common exception words Spelling List that we have attached but only do this if you're finding the specific word a real challenge!
Phonics activity 
Use the cards to practise your sounds. There are also Phase 3 and Phase 5 resources below. 
Using the worksheet below, can you please practise writing the words as neatly as possible straight into your books at least five times. Remember to form your tall letters tall and your short letters short and do not forget to join.

Below, you have the ebook and resources for some fiction and non-fiction reading and follow up work.
You can read it or you can ask someone in your family to help you read it.

Floating and sinking:

  • Have a go at the floating raisins experiment. Then complete the floating and sinking investigation.
  • Water Music Arrange some drinking glasses on a table. If you hit them with a pencil what sound do they make? Is each different? Now add different amounts of water to each glass. How has the sound changed? Can you compose a song to play on your water xylophone?
