P6 Literacy 2nd February

Poetry competition Lesson 1

As part of Children's Mental Health week, we will be writing poetry using the theme "Express Yourself". Find out more by watching today's video!


This week's sound is "i" e.g. history, hymn, build


Download this week's PowerPoint to find out more about the "i" sound.  Then download this week's "Words for Sorting" (choose either the higher level or the lower level) and the "Phonics - homework tasks" worksheet.


We are going to follow the same pattern as we would normally do in school so...


Tuesday  Today I have to sort the words on my list to find out which words contain the same spelling of the target sound.

Wednesday  Today I use some of my words to write sentences (at least four sentences).

Thursday  Decide which spellings are hard to remember and find a way to learn them.


On Friday you can ask an adult to test you on this week's spellings.

Happy Tuesday P6!
