Good Morning,

Today's star of the blog is Beth a very delicious looking message made out of cup cakes, yum yum, clever girl and great baking Beth!

I had a message from Tommy yesterday telling me that his conkers hadn't yet started to grow shoots but that one had landed on his lawn and had germinated! Now they have a horse chestnut tree growing on their lawn, how cool! Happy birthday to Lilly, Tommy's sister, who was 4yrs old on Sunday she had a lovely day and we are so glad.

Beth and Iain planted Iain's mystery seeds that Mrs Humphries and Mrs Hurley gave him to grow during lockdown, can you see what they were? That's right, they are radishes, hurray. They all got eaten last week and were delicious!

Here are your activities to choose from today ...

Phonics (reading and spelling)

If you haven't tried it yet have a go today,  go on a sound hunt, choose a sound you have been learning recently and see if you can spot anything with that sound in it. Write a list of all the things you find.

Reception and Year 1 children If you would like to do a page in your phonics workbooks (the ones made by CGP) please do so. 

Don't forget to watch the episodes of Alphablocks on CBeebies to help you learn your sounds too. 

Please try to spend 10 minutes (or more if you would like to) on a phonics activity to keep making your brains bigger and reminding yourself how to read and spell sounds. You can go on https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk or Teach Your Monster To Read https://www.teachyourmonstertoread.com .
