Draw three animals you would find at the coast.

 

Daily Phonics lesson:

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.   Sing  ABC song - https://youtu.be/75p-N9YKqNo

     Sing vowel song (ask your child to teach it to you!)

      Practise reading the phonemes/digraphs/trigraphs in your Home Learning Book.

 

2.   Pick a picture - read the word and click on the correct picture.

3. Read Phonics Play Comic - 'Let's go Fishing'

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

I  can  flop  and  drop  into  the sea.

I  can swim  and  swoop  in  the  sea.

I  can  twist  and  flip  in the  sea. 

     

Remember  - Start your sentence with a capital letter

       Leave finger spaces

              End your sentence with a full stop.

     Read your sentence

 

Well done! yes 

 

 

Mathematics 

I can use positional language

Where's the Monkey?

A song to help children learn prepositions of place - positional language.

Now use one of your soft toys to play a positional language game. Ask someone to hide your toy and when you find it you have to say where it is e.g. "...the teddy is under the bed....  the teddy is on top of the cupboard..." etc. 

Hide and seek with a twist!

 

P.S. words to use - under, above, next to, inside, in-between, on top, behind, in front

English

I can use adjectives to describe Rosie the hen.

I can write 2 simple sentences

Rosie's Walk

Rosie’s Walk is a delightful book about a hen named Rosie who decides to take a stroll oblivious to the fact that she is being trailed by a fox. This book is really fun to share with younger readers. It is full of wit and it is really interesting that at no point in the story does the author mention the word Fox.

Now talk about Rosie the hen. What animal is she? What colour is she? Can you describe what she looks like? Does she have fur or feathers? Is she a big or small hen? Where does she live? What do you think she is like? What does she like to do?

 

Use a couple of your ideas to write two sentences about Rosie the hen.

 

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 talk about how flour is made

 

Lots of you have been doing lots of baking at home. We have seen lots of  yummy cakes on Tapestry. This video will show how flour is made. When you have watched it a couple of times see if you can tell someone what you have learnt. 

Baked Bread: how flour is made

Do you remember when we made bread in Reception class to celebrate the harvest? I thought it would be good to see how flour is made. We've been making flour for 6,000 years, however the process hasn't actually changed very much. Check it out here.

You could make a simple playdough using flour and food colouring, make some letters - D  A  D -  press them onto a flat playdough background and let them dry. A super Fathers Day gift!

I can begin to understand my personal responsiblity to help to look after our world

Take Care of The World God Gave Us

Douglas learns why it's important to take care of the earth. Douglas' mom gave him a space in the garden for him to grow whatever he wanted. He decided to plant some flowers, and after a lot of time and hard work he had some beautiful flowers to share! He gave one to his his mom, dad, teacher, and even his dog Rosco. Everyone was very appreciative, except for Rosco, who totally destroyed his flower. God calls us to take care of the world He gave us, and we can do that through: recycling, not wasting resources, not littering, and so much more! Let's all do what we can to show God we're grateful for the awesome world He made just for us.
