Follow the link below to the Ruth Miskin phonics channel on YouTube. There will be a video uploaded, one sound per day (which is a recap of sounds taught) and this video will be available for 24 hours. There will also be a following spelling session for your child to test their phonics knowledge. It is important that you do both sessions.
Storytime- will not commence again until July. I will keep you updated about the return of story time.

Today you are going to continue thinking about sleeping beauty and about the fairies wishes.
No activities need to be printed for today's learning.
Listen to Adele Moss tell the story of Sleeping Beauty and stop at 11 minutes in when Sleeping Beauty falls asleep.
Listen to the part where the good fairies make wishes for Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) at 4 minutes in. List the 4 wishes made for Aurora and write a sentence explaining which wish you think is the best and why. Don't forget to use the word 'because' to give a reason for your answer.
Think about a wish you might make for a new baby or godchild. Draw a picture of yourself with a speech bubble above your head. In the speech bubble write your wish as a sentence.
Today we are going to continue looking at colour through a colour experiment.
For today's learning you will need:
- a white flower or celery stalk with leaves (the inside stalks/lighter coloured stalks work the best)
- a clear cup/glass
- food colouring (blue is the best colour for the celery stalk)
Fill the cup/glass half full with water.
Add a few drops of food colouring to the cup/glass until the water has a strong colour to it.
Cut the end of the flower's stem or cut 4cm off the end of the celery stalk.
Place the flower (stem first) in the water or place the celery stalk (bottom end first) in the water.
Write a prediction for what you think might happen.
Wait one hour and observe your flower's petals/ celery stalk.
Wait one day and observe your flower's petals/ celery stalk.
Write sentences about your results and what you observed after one hour and after one day.
What you should have seen
The plant needs to take up food from the soil and it transports the food through the stalk. It works a bit like an elevator taking the food up the plant to the different parts of the plant like the flower and leaves. This is what happens with the water in the cup. As the stem takes the water up the plant it also takes the food colouring too. The food colouring reaches the plant's leaves/ petals and ends up dying them.
Quick question: Why do you think I suggested using a white flower or a light coloured celery stalk?
