Each day there will be a new phonics sound (Set 3).
Read the sound and the words containing the sound (recap Set 2 sounds and previous Set 3 sounds as you go along).
Practise spelling the words containing the new sound. Practise spelling some words from Set 2 and previous Set 3 sounds.
Pick 3 common exception words from this list each day to practise spelling - https://cdn.oxfordowl.co.uk/2019/08/29/13/48/38/98b01b1e-5cd2-47f6-a592-f97cebd0b777/CommonExceptionWords_Y1.pdf
A suffix is letters that can be added to the end of a root word to change its meaning. The suffix ‘-er’ is added to the end of adjectives (describing words) to compare two things.
E.g. small. The girl was smaller than the boy.
Add ‘-er’ to the end of these words and put them in a sentence.

Wednesdays will be science days! Continuing with our topic of plants we are now looking at deciduous and evergreen trees. The children need to know that evergreen trees have leaves on them all year round whereas deciduous trees lose their leaves in autumn as they are too delicate to survive the winter. Deciduous trees have broad leaves, their leaves change colour in the autumn then fall off, they grow new leaves every spring, and they also have flowers to spread their seeds (the flower becomes the fruit). Coniferous trees have narrow, pointy leaves so the snow can fall off them and they can survive the winter, they spread their seeds using cones (the fruit of the tree). (For those who like a challenge - there are some trees, such as laurel, which is an evergreen with broad leaves but they are waxy to help them store water in the winter.)
There is an attachment below with pictures of leaves you can print off and stick in your book in groups of evergreen or deciduous. You don't have to print them off - you can write evergreen and deciduous in your book and draw your own leaves. If you can go outside you could look at trees and use the clues to decide if they are deciduous or evergreen. You could share photographs on Facebook or Twitter.
