Spelling with ‘ear’ -


Throughout this week the children will be reading the blue book ‘King of the Birds’ and completing some tasks like we do in school. These will be spread out and we will revisit different parts of the book on different days.  You can open the book using the document at the bottom of the page.


Today’s tasks with the book are:

  • Practise the speedy green words on page 18. Children should practise reading these speedily, in different orders e.g. across the rows, down the columns.
  • Practise the red words on page 6. Children should practise reading these speedily, in different orders.
  • Child to read the book again (pages 9-15). Each day they read it they should start to become more confident and will be able to read some words more quickly.
  • On page 16 there are some questions to talk about with your child. Read the questions to your child and encourage them to find the answer in the book. They may have to re-read the page to help them find the answer.
  • On page 17 there are some questions to read and answer. Your child should read the questions themselves and choose the correct answer using their knowledge of the book throughout the week.
