News writing 6.1.21
A brief introduction to our weekly news writing session.
In class we would have alphabet charts and word cards for children to use if they are ready for them. so if you have them at home please let your child use them. As you can see from the introduction we always allow the children to give us the letters, even if they are not quite right. Once we have a word we go back over it explaining any mistakes.
As many of your children are still in the very early stages of writing they will ask for you to spell the words for them. Please do not be tempted as the children are learning that making mistakes is the way we learn and it is by making mistakes that we learn. As those of you who joined in the session this morning saw, we always praise the children and never tell them they are wrong or cannot do it. Although a tricky session, we also want them to enjoy writing.So good luck and don't forget to upload it to our learning platform afterwards.
If a writing a sentence is proving too much, them ask them to just write one word. This could be the name of the object they have talked about, their pet or a friends name. If your child can only identify the initial phoneme in words, this is also OK. Once they have read back what they have written you can scribe it underneath and point out the correct letters they have and any they missed out. We look forward to reading them later.
Measurement Task 6.1.21

Try to remember the two new actions we introduced yesterday. At the end we will practise writing some key words and then I will explain this afternoon's task.
Spelling session . Friday 8.1.21
At this time of year we normally start to ask children to have a go at writing key words so we can see which ones they need to work on. As some of you already know we do send 3 spellings home for them to begin learning. Although during the autumn term we do not test them in class, this term although we don't call it a test, as it is very informal we would ask those children who have been having spellings to show us what they know.
Please remember grown ups that we are asking the children to complete this unaided. In class we would have no alphabet charts or adult support except for reassuring them that whatever they write is good.
The video explains more. Please have a go, even if you don't manage all of the words and upload it to Seesaw. .

News writing 25.1.21
For this task you will need your writing book, alphabet chart pens and pencils.
Remember how we write in class? If you are unsure follow these simple instructions:
Decide what you would like to write about. It can be anything you like.
Say each word to yourself,listen carefully to what you hear and write down the letters you think you need:
Remember you might not hear all of the letters, just write what you can hear
If you can only hear the initial (first) letter, then that is OK.
Try to hear more than one, there maybe digraphs, trigraphs and split digraphs. Have a go but remember you may not identify the correct letters needed just yet. But that is OK.
Once you have written your sentence then read it back to yourself to check you are happy with it.
Draw a picture to match the writing.
Don't forget to ask your grown up to scribe after you have written so your teachers understand.
If you want more help, take a look at the news writing sessions we have recorded before, and have a go at spelling the words on there as a practise.
Today you will be watching a video and completing a two part task focusing on the number 6. For recording purposes you will need your book and pencils.
You will need your listening ears, then some art and craft resources for the task.
Remember you can pause the video if it is going to fast for you. If you are finding it tricky to remember a phoneme, think of an object or look around your house and garden for an object which starts with that tricky phoneme.

After you have joined in with me to sing the rhyme with the actions, we will learn the next verse. The task, today is to make up a new verse of the song. You will need to think where else might the fly land on Peter? Once you have decided then draw a picture of Peter Rabbit with a fly on his nose, his paw and wherever you decided it would land. Then record yourself either singing or saying your new verse with the actions and upload it. If you are 'up for a challenge' then can you write out your new verse alongside your picture?
Today we will again dip into different phonemes, digraphs, trigraphs , sight words and have a go at reading some sentences. Remember to pause the video to allow you time to say the phoneme and the letter name. You will also need to pause it so you can try to read the sentences.

Be careful when you form then as they start off with in a clockwise direction, but then return anti-clockwise.
The task is to write your first name without using your name card. If you cannot remember the letters needed, or how to form each letter correctly then use your name card to try again. If you can do it perfectly without your name card then try writing your surname. Remember to upload your work so we can take a look at it.
We worked on the letters' f,j,e,s'
Little Peter Rabbit
This time I have added two new verses from the ideas you uploaded yesterday.
Today's task, if you did not create your own verse yesterday then this is what you need to do today. If you did not upload a picture of Peter Rabbit with the fly upon his nose, paw and on your choice of body, then please finish this today.
Some of you have bravely recorded yourselves singing or saying the the rhyme, if you can do this that would be lovely to share. Some of you have also taken up the challenge to use your phonic knowledge to write your new verse. If you feel like a challenge then please do this.
