Week Beginning 11.1.21

This week we are introducing a new sound 'ai'.

Please complete 1 activity a day. Once you have completed the worksheet please upload it to Google Classrooms.



Monday - Activity 1

Please listen to and join in with the Jolly Phonics Song up to 9:08. Work through the PowerPoint completing the tasks and activities on the 'ai' sound.



It has been brought to our attention that if you open the Twinkl PowerPoint on a mobile or tablet device the letter font may change. However, if you download PowerPoint on the App store (it is free) this should resolve the issue. Please refer to the teacher video on how to form the letters correctly. The PowerPoint works best if opened on a laptop or computer. Please note that some of the animations work best if opened as a PowerPoint rather than a Google slide.

Tuesday - Activity 2

You will need a piece of paper and a pencil 

Watch the video of Mrs Chadwick introducing the ai sound. Have a go at writing it and remember to form letters correctly. Can you think of any words that have the ‘ai’ sound in them? Write them down on a piece of paper.
