Lesson 2- Literacy

Click here for today’s Literacy activity and teaching.


Activity – To write a list. To use phonics skills to sound out a whole word.

Class A, watch today’s video to see what has been discovered in Class A! I have no idea where is has come from. Please help me by writing a list of who you think sent it! Children should try and write all the sound they hear for each word with increasing independence. You could repeat the word for them but once they know the word, just encourage them to have a go and write the sounds they can hear.

If you finish before 11.45 please try one of the phonics games on the class homepage.

Lesson 5

Afternoon Activity – Understanding the World – The World

Communication and Language

Activity – Floating and Sinking investigation!

Class A, the message we discovered was in a bottle which may have travelled in water. This used to happen! A long time ago people used to send a message in a bottle because it could float in water and the bottle was waterproof to keep the message safe.
Can you explore some objects at home to discover if it floats or sinks?
Test a range of objects. Make a prediction first, say if you think it will sink or float and then test it!

Record your results in a table.
