Activity Suggestions for Today
Phonics and Literacy
Ruth Miskin is delivering a speed sounds lesson on her Youtube channel at 9.30am. The programme developed by Ruth Miskin (RWI) is the one that the children will use in Reception.
View Alphablocks Series 1 episode 26 – The link is lower down the page.
Have a go at writing lower case ‘t’. See the video below.
Continue working on blending skills; a vital skill is mastering reading. See the activity below where children have to match words to pictures.
