Phonics and spelling

Play the game buried treasure on Phonics play using the login codes below. I believe this should work on most electronic devices. Let me know if you have any problems.

English

Read for pleasure: Spend 5-10 minutes (or more if you want) reading something for pleasure. It could be a story, poem, information text, online text/kindle/e-reader. You could also read to a younger or older sibling.

Writing a recount: Use time words and phrases such as 'in the morning, first, then, next, after, lastly' to write a short recount about your weekend. You will need to write in the past tense as you are writing about something that has already happened. Remember to use capital letters at the start of your sentences and full stops at the end. Use your phonics to help you spell any tricky words. Check your sentences make sense by reading them back to yourself. 

Year 1 - try to extend one of your sentences using the joining word 'and'.

Year 2 - try to extend your sentences using other joining words such as 'because, so, but'.

Here is an example of a starting sentence for your recount: In the morning, I ate my breakfast in the garden so I could listen to the sweet singing of the birds.

PE

On a Monday we would normally have PE. Have a go at PE with Joe Wicks. It's great fun and he is live online at 9am every morning. Just type in ' PE with Joe'. Obviously you can do it at a time that suits you! For those of you already doing this I believe you will also all be receiving a text with details of other PE activities that are on the website on the main Nar Valley Federation webpage under News and Events.
