Today we will be exploring the 'ir' sound with the help of Tricky Witch. 


There will not be a Phonics Zoom meeting today as you have had a Science Zoom meeting.


Please watch the ‘Alphablocks – Birthday Girl’ video, the ‘Tricky Witch Birthday Girl’ video and the Phonics-ir-input.  


I would like the children to practise their blending skills by reading 'ir' words from the powerpoint.


Then, I would like the children to practise their segmenting skills by spelling 'ir' words which their parent/carer says out loud. 


Extra Challenge:

Write sentences including at least one of the 'ir' words. Remember to use a capital letter at the beginning and a full stop at the end. 



Practise reading ‘ir’ nonsense words (see document below).

13:15 - 14:15 Reading


LO: To be able to explain the meaning of new words.


Today, the Vocabulary Viper will be helping us to understand new words (See the viper below).


Vocabulary are words. We need to know the meaning of words to be able to understand what we are reading.


See the pages from ‘Katie In London’ below. 


Read the text together and discuss the meanings of words that are new to you.


Think about what is happening in the story and illustrations to help you understand the meaning of new words.



Explain the meanings of these words from the story (see below) and write your explanations as sentences: 

  • gazed
  • enormous
  • shivered 
  • midnight
  • jewels
  • old-fashioned
  • raven
  • Yeoman Warder


Extra Support: 

Parents should write down their child’s explanations. 


Extra challenge:

Write your own sentences using these new words (see bullet points above). Remember to use these words correctly so that your sentences make sense.
