Hi everyone, I hope you are all OK. I am planning on doing another zoom on Friday at 11am. We will play games and play a phonics bingo this time. If your child can take part, can you prepare with them a 3 x 2 grid like last time , with one of these phonics sounds in each of the 6 boxes:

  ay       ey      oe      a_e     ir      ou      au      e_e      wh      ph       oy        ie  

Just like this but with the sounds above:

I will read out words with the sounds in and children can cross them off if they have the sound.

If anyone has any good games we can play on the zoom that they think will work, please email h.quinn@ellel-st-johns.lancs.sch.uk and I will see if I can fit them in.

I will send the Zoom link via Parents App just before 11am on the Friday.


Today we are moving our pets theme on to the story Can I be your Dog? It is one we did read in class and the children seemed to like.

Use this link to watch the story Can I be your Dog?


Can you write a letter back to Arfy? Write in full sentences to say to him what you would like him to be if he was your pet? Here is an example:


Dear Arfy,


I would like you to be a good dog. I would like you to play games with me. I would like to go on walks with you.
