Today we will be exploring the ‘wh’ Silent Ghosts digraph.


During the Zoom meeting, we will be reading through the input powerpoint

I haven’t uploaded this powerpoint because the file size is too large. 

I would like the children to practise their blending skills by reading ‘wh’ Silent Ghosts words using the nonsense words flashcards (see below).

Then, I would like the children to practise their segmenting skills by spelling 'wh’ Silent Ghosts words which their parent/carer reads out loud from the real words flashcards (see below). 


Extra Challenge:

Write sentences including at least one of the ‘wh’ Silent Ghosts words. 

Remember to use a capital letter at the beginning and a full stop at the end. 

Also, remember to write on the line and use lead-ins/lead-outs



Practise reading and spelling high frequency words using the flashcards or powerpoint.

These are words which we use a lot in our reading and writing.

LO: To be able to retrieve infer how characters from the text are feeling.


Today, the Infer Viper will be helping us to think about how the characters in the story are felling and to be able to explain why we think this. 

Please read the third part of ‘Oh the Places You’ll Go’ by Dr Seuss (see link below).

  1. How do the characters feel on the first page?
  2. How does the explorer feel on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th pages?
  3. How does the explorer feel on the last page?


Look at the illustrations and read the text to help you decide on what emotions the characters are feeling. 

Remember to use the illustrations and words from the text to explain why you think this. 


Example Answers:

  1. The characters feel bored because everyone is just waiting. 
  2. The explorer feels happy because he finds bright places, he rides high and he plays fun games. 
  3. The explorer feels lonely because he is playing on his own.
