Create your own phonics hop game using digraphs, trigraphs and split digraphs (for those of you on phase 5). Use paints to write these sounds onto leaves. Let them dry and use them to practice your sounds by hopping on each leaf :) 
Explore the story 'While We Can't Hug'. How do you think the characters are feeling in this story? What do you think this story is reminding us of? Why is the message of this story important? While hedgehog and tortoise can't hug, what did they do instead? 

While We Can't Hug

Discuss with your child what Coronavirus is using the Dr Dog resource. Encourage your child to talk to you about how they feel. Help your child to think positively about seeing their friends in Class 1 and that there are other ways to continue their friendship for now, but will not last forever. 


Ask your child to write about who they wish they could hug in Class 1 ("I wish I could hug..."). Why are they a good friend?


Challenge: Encourage your child to write a letter to their friend in Class 1. Take a trip to the post box or send it electronically.
