Each week the phonemes we will be working on are listed, with links to interactive games, on the Phonics, Handwriting and Spelling page.  This week we are continuing work on split digraphs, looking at o-e and u-e. We will then work on the alternative pronunciation of ‘i’ in words like mild, and ‘o’ in words like ‘old.’

Enjoy the rest of your Half Term holidays, and I look forward to seeing you all again soon, Mrs Fisher 🙂

    Preeya said she liked this poem because she worked hard on it. 🙂

    Miles was excited to explain to me all about acrostic poems and then wrote one about fireworks using the sound effect ‘BOOM!’:

    Bright in the sky
    Orange and green
    Opening like a Himalayan Balsam
    Magnificent fireworks are the best.

    (Himalayan Balsam is a plant with exploding seed pods that are a lot of fun)

    Also – on Blue Peter tonight (Thur 30th) they had a man showing the insides of fireworks – very interesting and worth a watch.

      Thank you for posting Miles brilliant acrostic poem. The plant you mentioned sounds really intriguing; I shall google it and have a closer look. Thank you also for the Blue Peter link. Mrs Fisher 🙂
