The Year 1s in Fireflies and Grasshoppers have been working hard with their phonics this half term and have learnt all the following phonemes:
/ea/ /oe/ /au/ /ew/ /ay/ /ie/ /ou/ /ey/ /wh/ /ph
We have set some practice assignments up on Spelling Shed for them and it would be really helpful if they could practice at least one game daily – as little and often practice is the best way to ensure new information gets stored in the long term memory.
All children should have their Spelling Shed log-ins to access the games.
We will also be setting spelling lists for the tricky (common exception) words – and with these words, children can earn certificates with the points that they amass! Each point they earn goes towards their “Shed Score” – and this is the total of scores for the past rolling 7-day period.
All children start as an egg and can work their way up to a Royal Bee!
