We will start as we always do by recognising our own name.
Please write 5+ different name cards (including your child's name) for your child to recognise and select their own name from.
The quantity of name cards should vary depending on how easily your child is able to recognise their own name. This should be being increased gradually.
I want to give out lots of dojo's for this task so please let me know how you get on with this task.
This morning for phonics we are going to try something new- we are going to be sounding out some different words. We have tried this at school at picked it up really quickly, so have a go and please let me know how you get on.
We are going to be singing 'Old McDonald had a farm' and sounding out the animals' names.
We will only use animals with short names such as cow, pig, cat, dog, hen.
As I said- this is new to us and might be a little tricky to begin with so just have a go and let me know how you get on.
Use your robot arms to help you with sounding out each syllable.
It is ok if they don't get them right- we are all learning together.
Send a short video of your super learning because I will be giving out LOTS of dojos for having a really good go at this tricky task.
If your child is finding this too tricky- just have fun singing the song and making the animal sounds together.
I have also left a video of the song below for your reference, so that you know how the song goes.
