Remember to keep practising your key words too. You can find them on our class page in the weekly English activities for w.b. 20.4.2020.
Our first sound is /ng/ as in words like sing, song, thing, hang, ring. It is a digraph because there are two letters making one sound.
Here is the action:
Learn more about the /ng/ sound from Geraldine Giraffe!
Our second grapheme is 'dge' as in bridge, fridge, sledge. It is a trigraph because it has three letters making one sound. It makes the same sound as /j/ (as in jelly) so has the same action (wobble like a jelly!).
This time Mr Thorne will help you with your learning.
Year One Phonics
This week we will be learning about another split digraph. Remember that is a grapheme that is split by another letter. So far we have learnt about the a-e and e-e split digraphs. This week we will be finding out about the i-e split digraph. It makes the same sound as /igh/ so the action will be the same as /igh/ (igh, igh captain!). It is in words like kite, five, nine, slide.
Here is Geraldine Giraffe to help you find out more about i-e.
This week we will start by practising some of the key skills we have been learning this year.

Let's use our writing skills!
Now it's time to use our imaginations. This week we are going to use the lovely book 'Flotsam' by David Wiesner. The book imagines what would happen if a camera was lost under the ocean. In the story a boy finds the camera that is washed up on the beach. He has the film developed and when he looks at the photographs there are all sorts of amazing pictures. There are no words in the book so you can use your own.
Take a look at the book - can you tell the story?
Look at these pictures from the book.
Can you choose one of the pictures to describe. Imagine you are there. Remember to use your senses like last week. Perhaps you could use some noun phrases. E.g. The huge brown turtle swims through the ocean.
Reception - you could write some describing words. Next challenge yourself to write a simple sentence about your chosen picture.
Years 1-3 - use your writing skills to describe one of the beautiful pictures.
