This week we are going to focus on the following 2 sounds. Please look at ee for 2 days and igh for 2 days, NOT ON THE SAME DAY.
Firstly, if you would like to watch a video all about the sound, log into Espresso ( logon details in your home learning pack) and follow the pathway:
Then as always have a little go at the blending games opposite
Reading activity for ee
Firstly, have a go at reading these ee words. Remember, you might need a sound line and buttons under the sounds to support.
For a challenge have a go at these words
I know how much lots of you loved playing the silly soup game. Remember the song!
Then fold lots of ee words up and put them in the soup. Sing the song and your child picks out a word to blend. Take it in turns. Why not add in some words with sounds that you feel your child might need a little more practice in? I would love to see some pictures of your silly soup games.
Writing practice for ee
Can your child write the sentence
I can see a sweet tree.
Show your child the following picture. Ask them what they can see? Prompt them to the full sentence, I can see a sweet tree. Say it a few times to help them to remember it. Then ask them to write, using their knowledge of the sounds, finger spaces and a full stop at the end.
Tricky word practice
Tricky word splat
Using the tricky words that we have learnt, write them onto labels on a piece of paper. Say a word and your child has to splat the word, with a splatter or their hand!
You might use the tricky words:
I, no , go , to , into, the
he, she, me, we, be, me, all , you, are, was, they, my, her
Wednesday 10th June 2020
Today we are going to look at 'igh'. 'igh' is a trigraph. This is 3 letters that make one sound, just like a digraph like sh and ch makes one sound too. It is important for your child to recognise that when they see these three letters together, the sound it makes is 'igh'.
To begin our work on 'igh', please watch the introduction video on espresso, as always.
Then practice what you have learnt with the blending games that you will find on the right hand side of the screen.
Practice reading the following igh words. Please put a sound line under the igh sound to support your child with the blending of the words.
For a little challenge have a go at these words:
Reading activity for 'igh'
For a reading activity today play, cross the river. Make a river with a blue blanket or towel and make a set of cards. Remember, igh is one sound so goes on one card.
Place down three cards that make one of the words above. Your child jumps across the river, blending the word. Then say the word fully. Try not to fall in the river!
Can you read the sentence that goes with this picture?
Put on the light at night.
Writing activity for 'igh'
Can you have a go at writing a word for each of the pictures.
As always, if you have any questions, comments or need support, don't hesitate to contact us on the reception e mail or on your tapestry account.
