For the rest of the week, I want you to practise the alternative pronunciations of the graphemes you know. For example, the 'ch' grapheme makes 3 different sounds: chicken, chemist, chef.
Use the video below to do this. Turn off the sound if you want to challenge yourself to do this on your own without my help. Pause it if you need to.
Make sure you practise your reading challenge too by clinking on the link at the top of the page. It is important to be able to read lots of words instantly as this will help you to read quickly and easily without having to sound out too often.

To write an information text (Part 1)
In this lesson we will introduce our witch and explain what they look like.
Y1: Write 1-2 sentences for each section. Use a capital letter and a full stop! Don't forget finger spaces.

Materials: Which materials are absorbent?
In this lesson, we will be learning about absorbency. We will test and compare the absorbency of a variety of household materials. You will need a piece of paper and a pencil to complete today's lesson. For the experiment, if you would like to take part, you will need: a sponge or cloth, plastic bag or cup, foil, cardboard or paper, cotton wool or tissue. If you do not have these materials, you can watch me complete the experiment while observing the outcomes.
You must read your reading book every day, just as we do in school. We do this after lunch but you can do it whenever you like! An adult must sign your diary to show this has taken place. You can of course read some of your own books at home to supplement reading. It would be great if this could be recorded in your diary too.
