How did your skipping go on Friday? I have left this little video here to help to remind you how to start.
There is also a video on the Just for fun page. See which teachers you can spot skipping at home .
You can also see a little video of me having a go at a bit of skipping on Tapestry.
Challenge of the day!
Draw something you might see on a farm.
Daily Phonics lesson:
We are now going to move onto Phase 5 in Phonics. In this phase the children learn that the same sound can be made with different letters - ai/ay. But we will still be practising and consolidating the previous phases. If you feel your child still needs more practise at Phase 4 please use the previous lessons, the resources in their Home Learning Book and the phonics programm on Espresso and Twinkl .
Remember - Practise makes Better!!
1. Sing Jack Hartman ABC song - Youtube (or any other!)
Sing vowel song (ask your child to teach it to you!)
2. Practise writing and spelling Phase 4 CVCC words - went, just, band, lamp, wind, nest
4. Write this sentence. You read it out, sound out each word and your child writes it down. Look out for tricky words!
I enjoy playing in the garden with my toys.
Remember - Start your sentence with a capital letter
Leave finger spaces
End your sentence with a full stop.
Read your sentence
o Take turns to count. This is harder than you think!
o One person says ‘one’.
o The second person says ‘two’.
o The first person says ‘three’’.
o Continue like this, taking turns, until you reach 20.
o Repeat but this time speed up!
o Repeat but this time the other person starts – so you are saying different numbers.
o Repeat but count backwards from 20 to blast-off!
o Try this with three people – that’s really hard, especially if you go fast!
2. Working together
How many in a shoe?
o You need small objects, e.g. Lego bricks, buttons, conkers, shells, very small toys, vehicles, figures or animals – fat felt-tips and paper and one of your shoes. Predict how many of an objects will fit in the shoe. Write your number down. Fill your shoe. Now count out the objects. How close was your guess?
