Year 2 Phonics - 20 minutes

This week we are considering a spelling rule.

Most of the time the sound ‘o’ is spelt with just the letter o.

But the w has a be-witching effect on vowels, often changing their sound.

Do you remember that after w or qu the sound o is spelt with a?

Directed task - Practise again any a(o) spellings you are unsure of.

Complete Day 3 worksheet.

Extension; Include the tricky words in sentences. Start your sentences in interesting ways.

Literacy - 1 hour 

Hopefully, you managed to finish your created story. We have loved seeing your story maps, mood ideas, and finished stories. 

For the next two weeks, we will be following a sequence of lessons called 'All about tigers'. By the end of this unit, you will have created an information text about tigers. 

In this lesson, we create an information map and 'step' the information.

LO: To tell an information text from memory.


Reading - 20 minutes 

Please take some time to read a book from home. Talk to somebody about what you have read or write some sentences about the book. 

We know you have some favourite stories but perhaps you will be able to find some more stories to share with your friends. 

Let your class teacher know about some of the books you have been reading. 

If you don't have many books at home try these books linked below:
