Today we will be revisiting 'ff, ll, ss'

  • Watch the video - Mr Thorne and Geraldine do double letters -
  • Watch the video 'Friendly Letters with Mr Thorne' -
  • Pause the videos at different points and ask your child to spot the 'friendly letters'. 
  • Afterwards, write out the sounds 'ff, ll, ss, zz and ck' using a light-coloured felt-tip pen. Ask your child to write over the top of the letters and then have a go at writing some on their own. 
  • If you have a printer you might like to try the Reading Race (see below). 

English/Writing (PSHE)

  • At the end of Kamala Harris’ story ‘Superheroes are Everywhere’ She tells us that we are all superheroes if we choose to make the right choices and stand up for what we believe in.
  • Can you think of a time at home or in school, that you were kind, helpful, or a good friend to someone else? Ask a grown-up to draw a big mirror shape. Inside it see if you can draw a picture of yourself helping someone else. Write a short sentence to explain your picture. Afterwards, discuss with a grown-up how it made you feel when you were kind and helpful.
