Start by practising all sounds we have learnt so far!
Use the powerpoint to work through the sounds. It is important that children practice the sounds at the beginning of each RWI session.
We are continuing to practice writing short phrases. Your grown up will need to read the phrase to you and you can have a go at writing it down. This will also help us learn our key words. (Please be aware these are simple phrases and not full sentences.)

Now read your phrases back to your adult.
Key words – Practice reading key words from the powerpoint given last half term.
Have a go at writing the following words – we are going to practice these everyday … ‘practice makes perfect’! (Ask your adult to read them out for you –

on got go
Today you will be practising your phonics skills to complete the worksheet. First look at the picture and try to sound it out – what sounds can you hear as you say the word? There are 4 sounds for each picture – they are all single sounds.
For maths today we are going to use all of our subtraction knowledge to complete a worksheet. If you want to use counting objects to help you that is absolutely fine, you could also use your fingers for some of them or maybe work some out in your head!
There are 2 sheets. One sheet is using numbers up to 10 and the other is numbers up to 20. Your grown up can decide which one they think will be best for you. If you really want to you can do both!
For topic today we are going to carry out another investigation. We are looking at ‘floating and sinking’. If something floats it means it sits on the top of the water, like a boat does. If it sinks it will go to the bottom of the water, just like the shells in the sea.
First thing you need to do is to fill a bowl or a sink with water. Next you need to find at least 10 small objects from around the house – these can be anything but try to find a selection of material types. Fruit and vegetables are also quite interesting to try.
Before you put them into the water write float on a piece of paper and sink on another. You are now going to make some predictions! This means you are going to have a think about what you think might happen. If you think an object will float place it by the word float. If you think it will sink place it by the word sink. These will be your predictions – ask your grown up to take a picture of your predictions.
Now for the fun part! Put all your objects together and place your float and sink labels away from them. You are now going to test each of your objects by placing them into the water. What happens? Do they float? Sink? Maybe they float for a little while and then sink?
As you test them put them next to the correct label. I wonder how many you got right from your predictions. Ask your grown up to take a photo when you have finished to show your results.
Look at the sink objects and think about the questions below, then do the same for the float objects –
What materials are the objects made from?
What shape are the objects?
Why do you think each object floated/sank?
