Good Morning 2S,
How did you get on with your home Learning yesterday? I hope you did well with everything including your spelling test. Did you get full marks?
Here are today's tasks, starting with Phonics.
(if you can't print, just write the answers on any paper.)
In our last Phonics session we learnt about the split digraph i_e. Here is a PowerPoint to work through to remind you about it.
a_e says the name of the letter a.
e_e says the name of the letter e.
i_e says the name of the letter i.
o_e says the name of the letter o.
u_e says the name of the letter u.

Yesterday, you studied four photographs from Victorian times that were all linked to school.
You made your predictions and drew inferences from them.
Today you have one of these images with some text that explains about the photograph. There are some questions to answer that ask you to use inference.
There is also a challenge activity with a new image that you haven't seen before.
Your next paragraph of your letter is going to be about learning in the different areas of Reception (both indoors and outside).
Use these photographs to make your own notes about what the children will do in the different areas of the classroom.
Here's my WAGOLL paragraph, but I know that you won't just copy mine!
Now it's your turn to write the next paragraph for your letter about learning in Reception.

Today we are going to be thinking about Respect and what this means.
Talk to an adult at home about how children and adults can show respect.

You can think about the story that we read last week, too: The Smeds and The Smoos.
The grandparents in that story were not showing respect to begin with, were they?
If you were in school we would have a weekly gymnastics lesson.
Here are two videos to help you improve your skills:
Wow! We've got to the end of the day!
I hope you've read your reading book, too.
If you read any extra books at home, just fill in your Reading Record as normal and I will count up the books read after the holidays and give you your Book Worm certificates.
See you tomorrow, Superstars!
