We have moved on to Phase 5 of Letters and Sounds now which can be tricky, because we have to learn sounds which sound the same but look different (e.g. 'ai' and 'ay'). However... the Butterflies are doing fabulously! Today we learnt the new sound 'ir' and the children were fantastic at spelling real and fake words including that sound. We even checked our spelling by writing sound buttons under each word. What super spellers we are becoming! Da iawn!
We've been writing story maps this week about the fairy tale of the Princess and the Pea. Now we need to practise reading it aloud (and learning it off by heart if possible!) to help us to write it up in full next week. Use the story map we did together below to help you have a go at home...
Oh no! Mammy Bear has forgotten how to make the perfect bowl of porridge! Today, the butterflies decided to become TV chefs and create their own iMovie to help her remember. First they wrote instructions in their literacy books to create a script and then learnt how to use iMovie to film scenes for their show. Then they became editors and added a title to their movie. Bendigedig pawb! Hopefully, Mammy Bear will make us some porridge to thank us for all our help!
