Friday 26th June

Good morning! Hope you are well!


Well done everyone! Another week of home learning done and dusted! I hope you have enjoyed this weeks learning and are looking forward to what next week might hold. Remember I will post the certificate video on Tapestry on Monday. 

Enjoy your day and have a great weekend.



Challenge of the Day!



The boy made a mistake leaving the penguin at the South Pole. What mistake might you have made in the past. How did you resolve it?


Daily Phonics lesson:

It is great that you are keeping going with the Daily Phonics lesson. It is so important that you don't forget the 45 phonemes that you have learnt and that you remember all the Phase 2, 3 and 5 Tricky Words. 

Please remember that if you feel that your child needs more practise at Phase 3/4 please revisit our previous lessons and also use your child's Home Learning Book to consolidate prior learning. I am glad to hear that some parents are consolidating Phase 3 and 4 phonics.


We have looked at the first set of Phase 5 phonics and for the rest of this term we will now be consolidating Phase 3/4/5 learning ready for Year 1.


Remember - Practise makes Better!!

1. Rap Our Letter Sounds | Phonics Song for Kids | Jack Hartmann

Rap the letters and the letter sounds with Jack Hartmann.
Jack raps each letter showing the upper and lowercase letters with the sound and a picture of an object with the beginning sound.

2. Phase 5 Sounds Song

Lovely graphics which help us to consolidate those Phase 5 letter sounds which we have learnt.

3. Let's play Space race - segment to spell the word.


4.   Write these sentences. You read it out, sound out each word and your child writes it down. Look out for tricky words!                                                             

My  dad  can  fix  lots  of  things.

My  mum  can  paint  the  house.

My  gran  can  do  a  cart  wheel!


Remember  - Start your sentence with a capital letter

       Leave finger spaces

              End your sentence with a full stop.

     Read your sentence


Well done!  yes


I can represent numbers in many ways

I Can Show Numbers In So Many Ways | Math Song for Kids | How to Represent Numbers | Jack Hartmann

Discover the different ways numbers can be represented in this number representation song. We say the number and show examples of different ways numbers can be represented; numeral, word, five frame, ten frame, tallies, pictures, number line, dominoes, fingers and numerals. I Can Show Numbers In So Many Ways gives students a chance to identify and say how each of the next set of numbers are represented in each of the ways we have shown in this math number representation song for kids.

Challenge - Can you show the number eight in numeral, tally, domino, finger, coin, ten frame and quantity form?

I can use a numberline to find the difference between two numbers.

Use the numberline to help you to find the difference between these numbers. Start on the first number with your finger and count how many jumps forwards or backwards that you need to make to get to the other number.



Here is a link to a Scholastic site which will give you lots of different literacy options to explore around the setting of Oliver Jeffer's Lost and Found story. There is a video of penguin poems and songs, a non-fiction book to read and lots of lovely activities to work through. Let me know what you think. Enjoy!


Have fun listening to the songs and poems, doing the acitivities and reading the non-fiction book!


I can talk about the different types of weather.


Do you remember the different weather that The Snail and the Whale encountered on their adventure? The penguin and the boy saw 'good weather and bad'. Watch this video to learn about the different types of weather.

Weather Song for kids | "Sun, Rain, Wind, and Snow" | The Singing Walrus

The Singing Walrus presents "Sun, Rain, Wind, and Snow", a fun folk song for children that explains different types of weather.In each verse, our cute characters set out in their balloon to explore all the fun things you can do when it's sunny, rainy, windy, or snowy. This is a great introduction for children to learn about the 4 seasons. ESL teachers can pair the weather words with the season - e.g. "sunny" with "summer", "rainy" with "spring", "windy" with "autumn", and "snowy" with "winter".

Challenge - While they were travelling to the South Pole, the boy and penguin saw 'good weather and bad'. Use this as a starting point for learning about different types of weather using weather icons. Draw a picture of your favourite weather.
