Fine Motor Fun - Peg Activity 
This week we have been working hard on our fine motor skills. For our home learning this week we thought we would set a fine motor skill challenge! We have been using the pegs in our classroom to invent and construct! We have made different forms of transport, bridges and dens!

Have you got any pegs at home? How many ways can you use them? Can you help peg the washing out for your grown up? Can you use your pincer fingers and put some pegs onto different objects? Can you make something out of pegs? We would love to see your learning on Tapestry!

Blending Away and Creative Inventions!

This week we have been amazed by the children's blending skills. We have been recognising the graphemes i, n, m and d, then saying their phonemes. We are starting to blend words including our High Frequency words: as, at, sat, it, is, in, dad and and. We are also working hard to read non-decodable words I and to! 

 

Can you have a go at blending at home? Can you have a try at blending the words in your comic? Can you blend to read the High Frequency Words?

 

Next week we are also looking at how to plan and build inventions with everyday objects! Can you find any gadgets or gizmos at home that you use at home? What do they do? Why do you think they were invented? Can you talk about them together and use the vocabulary: gadgets, gizmos and machines?

Grapheme Detectives

This week we have been busy learning our first set of graphemes (written letters) and saying the phonemes (sounds) which match them! We have been amazed by the children's recognition and we have used our detective skills to find them in books and to blend simple words too! This week, can you find objects in your home that begin with s, a, t and p? Can you use your robot voices to say the words? Can you have a go at blending some simple words with these letters (as, at, pat, sat, tap)? Can you have a go at using air writing (with your finger) or mark making with writing materials to write the letters? Use the rhyme sheet below to help!

All About Rhyme! 

 

This week in Phonics we are starting to learn new grapheme-phoneme correspondences alongside practising our rhyming! We are learning rhymes, creating actions for rhymes, changing rhymes and spotting the odd one out! Can you have a go at home this week? The resources below can give you some ideas of games you can play. Please don't feel that you need to print them but take inspiration from them.

 

If you have a go, I would love to see. Post your learning on Tapestry!

 

Also, can you have a go at writing your name at home?

What are we learning this term?
