To go with our maths topic, I wanted to share the book "The Very Busy Spider". I do not have a copy of this book so here is an animated adventure, much more exciting than boring Miss Pittam reading it! Have fun!

In Phase 4, no new graphemes are introduced. The main aim of this phase is to consolidate the children's knowledge and to help them learn to read and spell words which have adjacent consonants, such as trap, string and milk.
In the documents section there are two stories. One is related to the blend of sounds that we have learned today in Phonics, the other is some extra reading containing the blend.
Today we are finishing off our letter name work from last week (e.g. b is “bee”, c is “see”). As a starter, can you write the lower-case alphabet on some paper. Sing the alphabet song, pointing to each letter as you say the letter name.
Can the adult write the lower-case letters below on individual paper squares. Say sound (touching ear) and name (touching head). Then mix up cards and get chn to point to *letter name* while tapping their head.

Chilli Challenge: Write one sentence about what you have done today.
Today we are going to do a mindfulness walk to appreciate the world around us.
1- Have the child stand and take several belly breathes; allowing their bodies to relax from their head to their toes.
2- They are to soften their eyes and fix their gaze on the ground about 8 feet ahead.
3- Tell the child to smile slightly. Smiling signals the brain that what is happening is pleasant.
4- As they walk, have the child focus on the step of each foot as it rises up and then comes back down to the ground.
5- Periodically, have the child stop and notice one object (flower, stone, stick, leaf, etc) or sound (bird chirping, water trickling, car passing, etc) and spend a few moments appreciating that one moment.
