I hope everyone is feeling great this morning and ready for an amazing day.
Let me know if you need anything.
9:00 - 9:30 - Phonics - 'gn'
Look through the PPT and listen to the flashcard video. There aren't many words that have the silent 'g' but there are a couple that we use like 'sign'.
There is also a short Shakespeare video to watch. He says the 'g' sound. Does it sound right??
There is a worksheet but it is really for when you collect different words from around the classroom. You can fill in the 'gn' words on it or just write them in your books and then see if you can use any of the words in a sentence.
10:00 - 10:30 - English -Writing
Today we are going to be starting a new text. We are moving from an adventure narrative to a fable. Our new text is called 'A Crow's Tale'.
To start our text we are going to have a look at a range of forest and woodland scenes in the snow. We are going to look at how different creatures live in the woodland and think about how their natural features that help them survive, what is the temperature like in snowy conditions and how creatures might keep warm.
Discuss the temperatures in snowy conditions and consider a range of ways the creatures might keep warm.
You could draw and label some different pictures of the animals to help you remember your research.
