English Key Skills

Reception - practise spelling the tricky words (five times each!) have like (these two tricky words have a split digraph ‘e’ or ‘magic e’ on the end – they don’t make a sound and stay silent!) one.  You can use chalk, pencil, rainbow writing, felt pens, paint, try putting these words into sentences or use them to write a sentence in your daily diary if you want to!


Y1 – practise spelling all phase 4 tricky words (can you write them five times each!): so do some come little have like one there were said out when what.  You can use chalk, pencil, felts…maybe try to write a sentence containing 2 or 3 of these tricky words in your workbook!


YR & Y1 Afternoon activity – Finding out about Big Ben

Have you heard of a landmark called Big Ben?  What is it?  What does it look like?  Listen to the sound it makes? This week I would like you to watch a couple of short videos:



These clips focus on Big Ben but also show you some of the famous landmarks that we have also visited as part of our learning.  Once you have watched the clips I would like you to draw or make Big Ben, you can choose what resources you like to create this picture.  Maybe you could use different things you find around the house to help you? In the video they used a rectangle and a triangle to create their Big Ben pictures, is there anything in your house you could use to help you? We have attached some ideas to help you.  Parents, we have even attached a paper model of Big Ben to make if you wish to have a go too!   

Year 1 - I would also like you to write 3 facts about Big Ben on Purple Mash (set as a 2do task).  This work will help you with your Big Write tomorrow!

Have fun everyone and send some pictures of your Big Ben drawings or models! Remember to do what your grown up tells you, try your best with your work, and be kind and helpful.   Keep smiling and stay strong little Owls – we can do this!

Take care

Mrs Payne and Miss Harrington
