We have now going to move on from ‘Phase 1 – Aspect 4: Rhythm and Rhyme’ to ‘Phase 1 – Aspect 5: Alliteration’. This is a key skill in hearing initial sounds in words and will help massively when learning to read and write.

The CIL grid is at the top of the page as well as the suggested remote learning timetable. As always, I can’t wait to see all that lovely learning! This website page will be updated each weekday at 3pm for the next day’s learning.

We are continuing on with 2D shapes this week and moving onto 3D shapes later on in the week. By now you are becoming secure in knowing the names of the 2D shapes as well as being able to describe them. You are also able to spot 2D shapes in everyday life. Now we are going to focus on how we can use these shapes.
We are going to secure our knowledge of 2D shapes by making different outlines. Watch the video of how Miss Ketley make different shapes using play dough.
Attached is also a Play Dough Recipe if you want to have a go at making your own play dough.
To follow up, can you have a go at making your own shapes? You can use Lolly Stick 2D Shapes, Car Shapes, Shape outlines on the floor etc. If you feel you still need to develop some shape knowledge – try this game Shape Monsters
It looked like you had so much fun with your parties last week!
This week we are focusing on celebrations in Church as well as looking at what can be found in a church for a different game of ‘I Spy’.
First, look at Celebrations in Church to look at what we typically celebrate in Church. Then, follow the video for a game of I Spy (you will need to pause to take time to spot the different items) and a prayer.
