Tuesday 12th May

Good morning everyone! Hope you are all well!

 

Well the weather is certainly trying to keep our spirits up and making daily exercise a bit easier to do! I hope that you are still doing a bit of Joe Wicks and general keep fit. Did you enjoy doing the Cosmic Yoga yesterday? It has been lovely to hear how many of you are now able to ride your bikes without stabilisers - well done!

Did you know it is International Nurses Day today? We certainly have a lot to thank them for during this time! Have a look at the powerpoint that will tell you a bit about the NHS in our Activity folder.

How many squats, star jumps and hops can you do in 1 minute? Ask an adult to use the stopwatch on their phone and to record how many you do. Can you beat your first attempt?

 


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 4 please revisit our previous lessons and also use your child's Home Learning Book to consolidate prior learning .

 

Remember - Practise makes Better!!

1. The ABC Song

It's the classic ABC song with capital and lower case letters.

2.  Today we will recap phonemes digraphs/trigraphs with Phonics play -

Tricky words -

 Phase 4  https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/4/tricky-word-trucks 

Phase 5 https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/4/tricky-word-trucks

 

3.   Today's sound is 'u-e' says 'yoo'. This is what we call a split digraph. Let's see the Kit and Sam story today. 

Remember that your child will not know all the words so support them where they need it. You can also just read the story together.

4.   You say this sentence, sound out each word and your child writes it down. Watch out for the tricky words -                                                             You  can  use  a  flute  to  play  a  tune.

 

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 recognise odd and even numbers.

 

 

                         First to zero game
You will need: small objects, e.g. Lego bricks, buttons, conkers, shells, beads…
three small pots or bowls and a 1-6 dice (you can make number cards 1-6 if you
don’t have a dice)
How to play
o This is a game for two
people.
o You have a pot each and you place one pot in the middle between you.
o Place 10 or 12 small items in each of your pots.
o The middle one stays empty – at the moment!
o Take turns to throw the dice. Then follow these rules…
                         
RULES
o If it is an odd number, you place that many counters into the pot in
the middle.
o If it is an even number, place that many counters into your opponent’s pot!
o Keep playing until one person has run out of counters.
o They are the winner!
o Play again.


Challenge - Use 20 counters each. This makes the game last a bit longer.
 

English 

I can hear rhyming words.

I can talk about characters in a story.

I can write a simple sentence.

This super Julia Donaldson story certainly fits in with our mini-beast theme. Enjoy listening and reading the story together. Can you predict the rhyming words?

After reading the story draw and label some of the creatures. Ask your child to write a sentence about their favourite creature and why they like them. 

Remember  - Start your sentence with a capital letter.

     Leave finger spaces.        

End your sentence with a full stop.

      Read your sentence

 

           Well done!  yes
