Have you been enjoying the beautiful sunshine? Have you noticed any changes when you look out of your window? What is happening to the trees?
Today your Literacy challenge is all about Spring!
Here is some information to get you started. How do we know it is Spring? Discuss your ideas with a grown-up, remembering to speak clearly and in full sentences.
Please choose an activity which is best suited to the needs of your child:
Cut out the individual letter cards (if you do not have access to a printer at home, you could write the letters on little pieces of paper)
Look at the picture inside the flower on the Spring word mats.
Say the word, sound out the word and choose the correct letters to represent the sounds you can hear.
How many words can you make?
Can you write the words?
Draw and label pictures of things that remind you of Spring. Remember to use your phonics to sound out the words.
Can you write a short sentence to match?
Write sentences to match the Spring pictures.
Say the sentence before you write it down.
Use your phonics to sound out words.
Try to form your letters correctly, starting and finishing in the right place.
Use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces between words.
Check your writing makes sense.
