The phase 3 sounds we have learnt so far are j,v,w, x, z,w,v, and qu,ch,sh,th and ng . This week we will be learning the sounds ai, ee, igh, oa. Help your child to read and spell words that containing these sounds. Ask them to write simple sentences. Encourage them to use full stops and capital letters in their sentences.

This week we will be reading the story Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the really frightful night.
Day 1 Share the story with your child on you tube ensuring you stay with them to watch the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQVbRHQnnnU&t=17s
Ask your child questions about the book such as;
Who were the characters? What were their names? Did they enjoy the story? Why? What happened in the story?
Watch the story together again this time explain that you will be asking your child what was their favourite part of the story.
Activity 1- Ask your child to draw a picture of their favourite part of the story. Can they write a sentence that explains what is happening in their picture?
Day 2 - Re watch the story. Explain that this story follows a problem resolution structure typical in traditional stories. The pattern of three occurs regularly in traditional tales and in this story Charlie has to overcome three obstacles before he can return the teddy bear to the little princess. Explain to the children, that ‘storytelling hands’ can be used to help remember a story. Explain we are going to use our hands to remember the beginning, middle and end.
Ask your child to talk about the beginning of the story and draw a picture to represent this.
Activity 2 – Create a story map showing what happens in the story
Day 3 Today you will be looking closely at the setting of the story. Using the picture of the tower ask your child to suggest some adjectives to describe the setting.
Activity 3- Ask your child to write at least 4 sentences using adjectives to describe the setting looking at the picture of the tower.
Day 4 watch the story again asking your child to pay close attention to the characters in the book. Ensure your child understands what characters are.
Talk about the different characters in the story What do they look like? Use adjectives to describe what each of them look like perhaps draw and label them on a piece of paper. Explain that today we are going to create a new character to add to the story. What do they want their character to look like? Discuss what the character might look like, sound like, move like. What are they like on the inside?
Task 4- Design your own character for the story.
In Geography this half term we will be learning about the UK. We will learn to name the four countries that make up the UK. We will learn to identify their flags and their capital cities. Please help your child to learn about this by looking at maps and identifying where each country is within the UK.
