I will be delivering a live phonics lesson at 10.30 for all children to attend. Please have a pen and paper ready for the spelling part of the session.


Please also complete the extra phonics lesson below - in class we usually do 2 lessons of phonics a day so it would be great if an extra could be done at home.

I would like you to describe the Island we have come across on our journey through the Atlantic.

The Island has lots of different places; The whomping woods, Lost Lagoon, Mystical Maze, Twisted Tunnels and Cryptic Cave. Below is pictures of each area, I would like you to identify the nouns (things you can see e.g. a tree, rocks, the sky) and describe each noun using adjectives (it would be great if you could create a bank of words for each noun). 


For example: 

Whomping Woods - The Whomping Wood looks dangerous and dark. There is a huge tree with a thick, twisted trunk. The branches are long and tangled, swaying in the breeze. The sky looks stormy and gloomy.


Make sure you use capital letters, full stops, adjectives and the connective 'and' in your writing. Please email me your work when you are done.

In the activity below, the children are counting the tens and the ones.
