Access the 'Phonics Play' website again: to support your child to continue practising and consolidating their phonics knowledge. 

Begin with the 'Pick a Picture' game (Resources (along the top) > phase 3 and scroll down to find the game). This game will support their reading and blending of the graphemes.


Mrs Wilkins/Mrs Dowthwaite's phonics group: Select the 'phase 2' and 'phase 3 - set 6-7' options.

Miss Hardaker's and Miss Nadin's phonics groups: Select the 'phase 3 - digraphs' option. 


 Next, have a go at the 'Rocket Rescue' game. This game will support their spelling and segmenting of the graphemes. 

Mrs Wilkins/Mrs Dowthwaite's group: Select the phase 2 option.

Miss Hardaker's group: Select the phase 3 option.

Miss Nadin's group: Select the phase 4 option. 



Alternatively (or additionally if your child is super keen!) they could apply their reading and spelling skills to the activities below. If you do not have a printer, you could just load this up and your child show you the matching picture. OR you could write some of the sentences, and your child could draw a picture to match. 



Learning objective: To add two numbers together (mental - counting on).


Please continue practising yesterday's skill of mental addition - putting the largest number in your head and then counting on with the smallest number on your fingers.


You will find resourced below a range of activities and games you could do that allow your child to apply and practise their mental addition skills in more interesting ways. Feel free to adapt the activities and numbers within the activities as you see necessary - i.e. you may feel your child may benefit from more basic practise with a list of sums, like yesterday or be moved onto larger numbers. 


Interactive games: [These have only been tested on a laptop, so apologies if they do not work on other devices].


Addition number cards - These could be used in many ways: 
- A 'sum hunt' whereby you hide the questions around the room for your child to find and answer.

- Have the answers prepared on separate pieces of paper for your child to match to the calculation. 
- Solve the calculations together, writing the answers on separate pieces of paper and then turning them over to make a 'pairs' style matching game.

- Time challenge: how fast can they solve 5 calculations? 
Or you may have your own better ideas!
