## How to make your own scales

Plenary

Phonics

Revisit/Review:

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/5

Select Phase 5, Flash Cards Speed Trial, then select 5A.

We have now covered all the sounds in 5A. Listen to your child carefully. Any sounds that are not pronounced correctly note these sounds down as these are the sounds your child needs to practise.

Teach:

Today we are learning about the sounds 'i' can make. There are two different sounds it can make. The video below will explain more.

## Alternative 'i' sound

Now that you have watched the video and know which two sounds 'i' can make, test you knowledge and have a go at the game Acorn Adventures on Phonics Play, Phase 5 and then scroll down to phase 5b and select the 'i' sound.

Practise:

Using the cards below sort the words into the two different sounds 'i' can make in a word:

Group 1- 'i' as in mind

Group 2- 'i' as in trip

Apply:

To apply your knowledge of the 'i' sound, select Phase 5, then scroll down to Phase5b. Select sentence phase 5b and read the sentences on the screen.

Alternatively, you can select a book on Oxford Reading Buddy and read a book on there and see if you can spot words that have the 'i' sounds.

Experience day

Take a look at the PowerPoint and look at the slides provided to engage with our experience day.

Enjoy!

Science

Today in Science we are going to continue to look at materials.

Firstly find the materials property sheet from last week. It looks like this:

Now cut out the material cards from both of the materials sheets.

Turn the cards face down so you cannot read the writing.

Turn over 2 cards. Find an object made from each material e.g.

If I turned over glass and wood. I would have to find one object made from glass and another made from wood.

If you can, bring the objects back to your table.

Now you are going to compare the objects using the comparing sheet. Have a look at the objects you found? What is the same? What is different? Use the properties sheet to help find the similarities and differences.

E.g.

If I was to compare my two objects below:

I could say this:

Similarities-  hard, opaque

Differences- one is dull and the other is shiny, one is smooth and other other is

rough, one is a conductor and the other isn't

You have to compare two materials per box and you have to do this three times to fill the sheet.
