Lesson 3

Phonics pack

In your packs you have some phonics sheets and spelling sheets to work through.

Lesson 4

LI: To create a word bank of rhyming words

In your packs you have two different sheets to work through.  You will be matching rhyming words to create rhyming pairs and creating your own list of rhyming words.

Task 1

On your sheet there are two rows of images – saw what he images are out loud.  Then, match the images together that rhyme (log/frog)

Task 2

Now I would like you to see how many rhyming words you can find to go with the images on your sheet.  Try to find at least 2 rhyming words for each image/word

Lesson 5

LI: To write a rhyming poem

Today, you are going to help me finish a poem about some animals –but the problem is that I can’t think of any rhyming words to complete it.


On the paper provided in you pack you need to write out the poem and put your own rhyming word in the gaps to complete it.

There is a word bank to help you.

I look forward to seeing your fancy pants handwriting!!
