One of today’s activities is to find and make patterns in your home. Here are some patterns I’ve made this morning. Can you spot what comes next? What can you make patterns with in your home?

Well done Roshni, these patterns are great! Could you make a pattern with 3 or 4 different things now?

Well done Roshni you have succeeded with my challenge!

Patterns from Amelia too! Well done.

Today’s Challenge

Can you use your Phase 4 sound mat, in your home learning packs, to find phase 4 letter blends in words. Use your reading book or a book you enjoy reading at home to skim and scan the words to find the blends. If you like, you can write a list of words that you find with different letter blends like, ‘st’ for star, ‘fl’ for flag, ‘gr’ for Grandad and ‘nd’ for hand and sand.

You can also find this sound mat and other Phase 4 activities on Twinkle
