Encourage your child to use their phonics to help them spell and write the words independently. Note: There is no expectation that your child should be able to spell all of these words correctly at this age. They should however, be encouraged to think about the sounds in the words and ways of spelling each of the sounds.
Extension task – create a list of the things you would like to eat, also focusing on the spelling of the words phonetically, e.g. pizza crisps pasta marshmallows.
Here are a couple of activities to do based on Kandinsky's artwork. The first task is for you to talk about and to refresh your memory of Kandinsky's paintings and what you think about them. There are also two activities for you to do.
1. When your child has traced around the dotted shapes, colour in the shapes.
2. Have a go at painting coloured circles in each square in the style of Kandinsky.
