Good Morning


It's Friday! You've made it through another week and only one more to go! You've done so well and I've seen some fab work this week. Well done.


See you soon

Look at through the PowerPoint and the i grapheme. This is a very common grapheme. Read through the i words.


Watch the flashcards video. 


Watch the video ‘Tiger and I’. It tells the story of a time when Miss Oh No was lonely and hoped that her friends would call for her. Make the Yellow I (point to an eye) action every time you hear an i word. Can you remember all of the i words in the song?


Look at the activity. Play a treasure hunt game, searching for the i cards. . Record the results, if possible, in colour-code on the Record Sheet.
