Here are this weeks Phonics videos.
We love our phonics games and now they are all free - have a go phase 3
Making a home for Handa and Akeyo
All you need is sticks, elastic bands and string.
Begin by creating squares with the sticks and elastic bands. You could then investigate what makes a square and whether these are true representations/if it's possible to make a true representation given that natural sticks have curves to their shape.
Then using string to bind 4 squares together to create a cube shape. This is great opportunity for recapping knowledge about 2D & 3D shapes and their properties.
Repeat and decorate! There's so many different ways to create this structure,
How cool is this!

Understanding the world
there are lots of new and tasty snacks to try. Tinned and frozen fruits are just as tasty and can be healthy too.
• Make Healthy Bear Hunt Snacks with the children. (Toast and butter with banana and raisins to make a bear face).
• Food tasting- trying the fruits and vegetables from the story ‘Handa’s Surpirise’.
This weekend many families celebrated the 75th anniversary of VE day. I would love to see how you and the family joined in with your own home celebrations.
My family decorated our home with flags and home made bunting.
