Monday 11th May

Monday again and it's  P.E day and today is  a bit of fun as it is nearly time for sports day! Don't forget to get your mummy and daddy to join in so it's a bit of a competition.




Egg and spoon race - Hopefully it will be dry enough to do this in the garden and you might want to hard boil the eggs first!  Have a race and don't forget no holding onto the egg!



Beanbags in bucket - doesn't have to be a beanbag it can be paper stuffed into a sock.  Space them out and then race to collect each one and put it in the bucket at the end.




Our new sound this week is 'b'.  Here is the link to song.  The action is like you are swinging a bat in tennis.

If you log into espresso you can also see what Scrap has to tell you about the sound 'b'.  (Student27931 & sjkeele)

It is foundation/literacy/phonics/phase 2.   Have a try at the initial sounds and blending as well.


Finally, I have given you the link below to the Picnic on Pluto game which practices your blending and recognise real or fake words.







Jolly Phonics Phase Two



We are going to look at introducing the concept of money today - there are two activities you can have a go at one slightly harder than the other.


Activity 1: 


Set up the pirate shop where pirates are only allowed ten pounds each (just 10 pieces of paper or cardboard cut up like coins is fine) and all pieces of treasure cost one pound. Have a try at being the cashier and the shopper, when you are acting as cashiers check that shoppers buy no more than ten items. You may suggest that customers go back for more items to make up the ten if they don't have 'enough'!


What if it is buy one get one free - how many can you buy?  If you only buy 2, 4, 6, 8 (any number) how much money do you have left?


Activity 2:


Set up the pirate shop the same as above but this time label the cost of items and if you have enough coins at home try using real money.  Start with ten pence, how many items can then but with it?  If they only spend some of it how much do they have left?


(This second activity continues our theme of number bonds from last week - don't worry if this is too difficult at the moment just stick to activity 1).
