Summer Term 2019
Tricky words and High frequency words
Please continue to read with your child three times a week at home and for this to be recorded in the reading record. We will then send home three new books and once your child has read all three books. Happy reading! I have attached the tricky words and high frequency words for the children to practise reading.
The children need to be able to read and spell our tricky words. Please can they practise spelling these at home each week. Please see list of tricky words attached above. I have also attached the year 1 tricky words for the children to have a go at spelling, once they have learnt all the tricky words to phase 5.
Please find link above to phonics play where the children can play different phonics games for free online.

Our first creative project for the second half of the Summer term is to make something associated with our new topic 'Plants and Animals'. The children can make whatever they like and choose the resources they would like to use. A few suggestions are:
-Paint a picture of a plant/animal
-Clay model of different plants/animals
-Information book/leaflet/poster about plants/animals
-Grow a plant/Keep a plant diary
-Poster about looking after plants/animals
Have fun and be creative! Please could the creative homework task come into school on Monday 15th July 2019.
