Phonics Thursday 4th February 2021
Starter – please use the following link - Sentence Substitution (phonicsplay.co.uk). choose 3 different sentences to complete (ones which you haven’t completed before)
Remind parent or sibling what a contraction is and what punctuation is used.
Task 1 - Using your knowledge from yesterday’s videos, can you match the words to their contracted forms.
Task 2 – Can you rewrite the sentences using the contracted form of words eg
He could not go to bed until his parents had read him a story.
He couldn’t go to bed until his parents had read him a story.
Task 1 - Time cards
Cut out and match the activity/event to the correct unit of time. As an additional challenge, put in order from the smallest to the greatest amount of time. We are sure this activity will generate some great discussion (perhaps a few arguments too!).
Read each activity and estimate how long it might take you to complete the task. Have someone time you. How close where you to your estimate?
