Did you have a good start to the week? The weather is supposed to be nice and sunny this week so I hope you’ll all be able to get out and about and enjoy the sunshine.
Here are today’s home learning tasks:
This link will take you to the phonics lessons:
Reception, your lesson will be uploaded at 10am. Year 1s, your lesson will be uploaded at 10:30am. If you feel like you need a bit of extra practice there is another lesson at 11:00am that focuses on blending sounds. After they have been uploaded the videos are available to view at any time throughout the day.
If you’re struggling to concentrate for the full video, try doing it in sections and have a break between each bit.
