Heacham mornings


Good morning!

What a beautiful day. (Unless it’s snowing, in which case I will have just walked to work when you get this and I will be less happy!)

Firstly, I’m sorry that I haven’t been in touch with some people last week, and have been delayed in answering emails – I had a problem with my laptop lead and had to wait for a new one to come.

Let’s have a look at this week and what we’ll be doing.

Monday

Register and reading

You’ve got two reading books this week – Timmy’s Snowball, and Fun in the Snow.  Can you guess why I put those ones on for you?  This week, I’d like to know which one is your favourite.  Email me and let me know!

phonics and guided reading

Our phonics this week is looking at the soft ‘g’ sound, and the different ways that that is written. What words can you see in Mr Thorne’s video?  Write a sentence for the three you like the best – bonus points if you can get all three in the same sentence!

Now, I nearly didn’t put this one in, because Geraldine (who has a soft ‘g’) is very, very naughty in this one.  I think that she needs to learn some manners!  I know that none of you could ever make this many bad choices in one go!

In this video, I’d like you to see which letter follows the ‘g’ most often – is it gi, ge, or gy?  All of those usually make the ‘g’ into a soft sound.

Today we have a different phoneme and grapheme, but one that is often muddled with soft ‘g’ when you are writing.  Today we are looking at ‘dge’.

Friday

For your phonics this Friday, I’d like you to look for the sounds that we have looked at in your reading books.  Can you find them?  If not, where else could you look?
