Hi Everyone,

Today we are recapping ‘m’ 

‘mountain’

I would like you to think of all the things you can find beginning with ‘m’

Go on a hunt for the objects. 
These could be:-

m-a-t

m-oo-n 

When you have found them sound them out together and go and have a go at writing them. 
Can you make a silly sentence with these words?

Friday 

Red words are tricky words that we usually call sight words. 
Can you practise spelling these red words using the ‘look-say-cover and write’ method. 
How quickly can you write them all? You can try and beat your own time. This week I would like you to practise - He, me, we, she and be. If you would like to practise more ‘go for it’!
