This week I shall being asking your grown ups to test how many of the purple letters and sounds you can remember without any prompting.
Grown ups ask the children to say the sound of each of the purple phonemes. Note which ones were a bit tricky and not remembered - please email me this information. I can then plan session for those we are still wobbly with.
Reading: please take time today to read this book and complete the 2 activities.

This week we are think about time.
This is a game for two players.
You will need a set of the snap cards between you. For the set, you'll need your adult to write out the days of the week 7 times.
Share the cards out face down.
Take turns to turn over a card and add it to a pile in the middle.
Say 'snap' if the two cards are days which are next to each other in the week, like Saturday and Sunday.
Whoever says 'snap' first picks up the whole pile and puts them on the bottom of their own.
If you turn over a holiday card then you must both say 'holiday' instead. Whoever says it first picks up the pile.
How do you know that's a 'snap'?
You could add some information cards which say things such as "the day after Sunday" or "two days before Monday". Children could be given blank cards to create some information cards of their own.
As an initial activity, children could make their own diary page where they had to sequence the days of the week. They could then refer to it as necessary as they played the game.
We are in the last week of our topic and we have had a lot of fun.
Children around the world enjoy playing with different toys and games. Have a go at this game.
