My Letters & Sounds
Phase 2: u sound PowerPoint
Open ‘u’ sound PowerPoint (week 2 day 1 activity 1) that we would normally do this together in class. There are lots of opportunities to practice the saying the u sound. Make sure you get your magic pen ready (pointing finger) to practice writing the sound. I know you all have lovely singing voices so try your best to sing the song.
Activity: After there is a worksheet practicing the u sound. This will help embed what we have just learnt in the PowerPoint. Your child has to cut out the letter and spell the words.
Watch 3D shape song:
Work to complete the 3D everyday shape sorting activity. Look at the Egyptian Pyramid you made last week, which shape is it?
My World & How it Works
Open Egyptian Pyramids powerpoint (day 1 activity 3). Read or ask an adult to help read/explore/discuss each slide.
Make a map of Ancient Egypt. Mix tea bags and coffee with warm water in a bowl. Using a washing up sponge dipped in the bowl, begin to stain your paper so it looks old and interesting. Take a look at the map of Ancient Egypt (week 2 day 1 activity 3 – map ) what can you see? Using the symbols (week 2 day 1 activity 3 – labels for map) plot your own map! Don’t forget to make/paint/draw the River Nile!
