18.03.13 Magic e or Silent e
We will learn to read and spell: make, like, made. We will focus on magic e and how it jumps over other letters to make the vowels say their name and not their sound, so cap becomes cape and not becomes note.
These short clips will help to embed this tricky spelling rule.

Good idea for a magic e game with parent and child.
Blog any magic e words you know below? Does your name have a magic e? If so blog that too please.
We read lots of books this week. One I particularly enjoyed had the title, Little Mouse. The author was Alison Murray. My favourite character was the giraffe. The book had lots of great words and the illustrations were beautiful. The little girl did not want to be her mum’s little mouse as she thought she was brave like a lion. When she was sleepy she cuddled up to her mum and decided sometimes it was good to be a little mouse.
Which animal would you like to be and why? Blog your answer below.
Write a book review of you favourite book if you have time.
Next week we are learning ‘wh’ as in what, where, when, whale.
‘W’ and ‘wh’ are easily mixed up by children.
Pop your hand in front of your mouth and say w, you will feel a faint wind on your hand. Do the same with wh and you should feel a strong wind.
Ask your child to say which and witch, can they hear and feel the difference?
Try to read these words?
Can you find any wh words in your home or outside? Share them with the class below please.
