Tricky Words and Sight Words

Below are a couple of videos that we like to watch in Chaffinch class when we're learning our tricky words. Encourage your child to sing along at home and then practise writing and then reading each of the tricky words.

Chaffinch class have created a video showing all of the Phonics sounds that we have learnt so far. Use the video to help with pronunciation or as a tool to aid linking sounds to letters. Happy practising!

After reading the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, we conducted an experiment using gummy bears. We placed two gummy bears in water and then made predictions about what would happen. Some of us thought the gummy bears would disappear and some of us thought they would change colour.

We checked on the gummy bears each day and after four days something magical had happened! Our gummy bears had grown in size! They had absorbed the water making them extremely larger than a normal gummy bear! Eli was the only one whose prediction was right in that he said "they will grow bigger".

Maybe you could try this experiment at home!
