Mrs Thomas’s Phonics Group (Split Digraphs)

Hi all,
Today we would have been recapping the split digraph ‘e_e’ so I have set you a challenge! Here is a sheet of ‘e_e’ words, however, some of the words are real and some of them are nonsense. Can you sort them? If you can’t print out the sheet, don’t worry, you can just write the words in two columns on a piece of paper. Happy sorting!

By the way, if you’re not usually in my Phonics group but you would like to do this activity, then that would be great.

Here are a few fun ideas to help you learn more about your local area. We can’t wait to see what you produce and would love to see the class blogs overflowing with new History knowledge!

For an added challenge, I wonder if you can find where you live on a modern day map and compare the area to a map from another moment in history?

June’s Challenge from the Shropshire Wildlife Trust – 30 Random Acts of Wildness

The Shropshire Wildlife Trust have set a challenge throughout the month of June.  I have made this calendar for you to download/print/follow. This will link with your Outdoor Learning Themed Week (starting Monday 8th June).

Click on the calendar and see how many Acts of Wildness you can complete throughout the month. Random Acts of Wildness

You don’t have to complete them all but maybe challenge yourself as a family to do as many as you can when you are out and about of your walks or even at home in the garden. We would love to see you on your adventures and any of your completed Acts of Wildness, so please post pictures and your activities on your class blogs.

Visit for more ideas, videos, activities and facts for you to use and discover.

Last week we enjoyed looking at all the fantastic work which has been produced based on our citizenship
Summer 20 Home Science Theme Week (003)themed week.

This week we’d like children to complete Science activities.

Now we watch and wait to see if scientists can help our world quickly.

But all these Scientists started out practising their Science at home and at Primary School!

Scientists are a bit like the Superheroes of our time (along with a few other people!) So be a Science
