a

Shall we show our grown ups our phonics song?

 

Laura has got a very special friend that is helping her with her phonics learning today its our very own 2S robot like Bernard in our story. Do you remember him?

 

Our robot is a very hungry robot but he will only eat the letter a.  Laura needs your help to recognise the letter a so we can feed it to our robot. Lets do it together.

 

Challenge: Can you find the a  sound within these words?

tab

sand

ant

pants

 

The website below, is really useful for recognising letter sounds. You can also try reading the Phase 2 tricky words!

Lets play I spy with my little eye….Can you find all the objects that begin with the a sound? You could do it on the screen and point to them or print it off and draw a circle around them.

Choose another letter sound and circle the objects that begin with that letter

Phonics learning i think its….

Well Done everybody, you are working really hard on your phonics learning.

No- Bot: The Robot with no bottom!

Hello my lovely 2S

I wanted to share with you are next topic book. It is called

No- Bot: The Robot with no bottom!

This story is very silly and very funny! Shall we read it together?

 

What did you think of our new story?

I think its?

Let’s see if we can answer some Who? What? Where? questions about our story.

Who?

Who lost their bottom?

Who used Bernard’s bottom as a nest?

Who used Bernard’s bottom as a boat?

What?

What is Bernard?

What does Bernard lose?

What was seal riding?

Where?

Where was Bernard going when he realised he had lost his bottom?

Where were the rabbits going in the boat?

Where did Bernard go at the end of the story?

 

Don’t forget you can use the communication boards to help you answer the Who? What? Where? questions and watch the story as many times as you like.

Really proud of you all

Laura, Jenna and Mike
