English- Today I would like you to label the characters from the story 'What the Ladybird Heard' Either download the sheet below (I will put this on Class Dojo too) or just draw the characters and write their names next to it. See picture below for the characters. REMEMBER: When writing use your phonics to sound out and write the words.
PARENTS: Your child might write the words differently than we do when using their phonics this is ok. For example they might write caw for cow. This is because when you sound it out this is what it sounds like. At school we encourage the children to write what they can hear as this is how their writing develops.
Phonics- Today we are revisiting 'e' https://watchkin.com/ec2563c14e. Try writing the sound. Can you write some other sounds that you know. Next, play the Fred Frog game ' What is at the Zoo' https://watchkin.com/4efa8020b6
