Phonics - reading and spelling words with a new sound:

Your child should watch and join in the two videos below. They will need paper and a pencil.

Reading ‘ur’

Spelling with ‘ur’


Throughout this week the children will be reading the Orange book ‘A good cook’ 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. Follow this link to find the PDF of the book ‘A good cook’:

Today’s tasks with the book are:

  • Read the story green words on page 5. Children should look for special friends, Fred talk and then read the words (‘Friends – Fred-Read’)
  • Talk about the vocabulary on page 8. These might be new words to the children which they will encounter when they read the book.
  • Children to read page 9-12.

Your child will need paper and a pencil. Ideally this would be lined paper/exercise books, or paper that you have drawn some lines on so that children can practise their handwriting and where letters sit on the line.

Spelling practise – practise your weekly Year 1 spellings ready for a quiz on Friday.

Here are this week’s spellings: so, no, go, day, play, away
