Bug Club and Phonics

In the front of your child’s reading record you will find their log in details for Bug Club. This is an online reading resource that can be used on computers and tablets.

At Edmund Waller we follow the Letters and Sounds phonics programme.  If you want to find out more information about how phonics is taught at school then please follow some of the links below and we have included some websites with fun games and resources.

The sounds the children have learned this half term are:

s  a  t  p  i  n  m  d  g  o  c  k  e  u  r  h  b  f  l  and the double letters ff and ll (where they make one sound e.g. in bell or scuff

 

We have also been learning the following key words:

is, it, in, at, and, to, the, no, go, I

 

Practising recognising these words and sounds with children in books and their environment, will really help to develop their reading and writing skills.

6JO Home Learning – Friday 23rd March

DESIGN AN ANIMAL!

We have been learning about the way in which animals have evolved through natural selection so that they are well suited their habitat.

Do you think ‘mother nature’ has got it right?! What if you could bring to life an animal that you believe is the best suited for the environment in which it can be found?

This week, your task is to design an animal that you think is perfectly suited to an environment of your choice. You can choose from:

  • the Arctic
  • a rainforest habitat
  • a coral reef habitat
  • a desert habitat
  • a mountain habitat
  • a coastal habitat

You should present your animal using images and annotations, describing the physical features of the animal and the way in which it’s adapted to suit its habitat.
