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.

Magic e song

Jolly Phonics Short and Long Vowels Songs

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.

Book Review
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.

Geraldine the giraffe is learning the ch sound.
Can you?

  6. I liked the pandas book. I like the girl feeding the baby panda. I didn’t like the men cutting down the bamboo. Corey


  7. The book I read this week was The Scaredy Cat. The author was Russel Punter. At the start of the book Stanley is scared of everything. I liked the part when he thinks he is frightened by a ghost in the bathroom. Stanley then manages to overcome his fears and stop a burglar to save the day. Mariyah

  8. I would like to be a butterfly because I can then fly to anywhere I want to! Mariyah


  9. I have read Pandas. Pandas are black and white. They are big and eat bamboo. Lauren


  10. I read the book “Pandas” by Emma Lynch. I liked to learn all about the pandas and loved the photos of them, especially the photo of the pandas cuddling. I thought it was cute to see the baby panda being fed by a bottle as I have a toy one that I feed with a bottle. I did not like to hear that the bamboo trees are being cut down and that the pandas might be hungry.
