Thank you for all the photographs I have been sent so far. It is lovely seeing what you have been up and how hard you are all working. I have uploaded all of the photographs to the 'Photos from home' folder for you to have a look at. Please keep sending them in, I enjoy looking at them and hearing about all the fun things going on.
My email address has been sent out as well so if you wish to contact me or ask anything, please just drop me an email. I will try to reply as quickly as I can but I can't always promise it will be in the daytime due to a very lively toddler keeping me busy! My lazy little toddler decided he didn't want to get out of his PJs today! But we had lots of fun playing inside with his Paw Patol sets. I hope you've all had a lovely day. I am sure you have worked a lot harder than my little boy!
Enjoy looking at the photographs!
See you tomorrow
Objective – to understand clockwise and anticlockwise.
Turns are so important when we are describing position and location. They can help us to navigate and find places or follow instructions. When we complete a full turn it doesn’t matter which way we turn because we will always end up back in the same position. When we complete a half turn, it doesn’t really matter which way we go because we will end up in the same place, but quarter turns are different. It is important that we turn the right direction when completing a quarter turn otherwise we could be in two totally different positions. We talk about direction using ‘clockwise’ and ‘anti-clockwise’. Clockwise follows the direction of the clock. Can you look at a clock and turn in the same direction? Anticlockwise is the opposite – against the way the clock turns. Watch the short clip below to help you to understand better.
Task – Have fun practicing your turns including whether to turn clockwise or anticlockwise with somebody at home. Take it in turns to give instructions saying which way to turn. When you are happy with your clockwise and anticlockwise, make a poster explaining the different turns you have learnt so far and the difference between clockwise and anticlockwise.
Challenge – Try the ‘Animals turning clockwise and anticlockwise’ activity or the ‘Gruffalo – Clockwise and anticlockwise’ activity.
Objective – to practice using question marks and capital letters.
I hope you enjoyed your interviews yesterday and I’m sure you learnt a lot! Today we are going to practice using question marks again but in a slightly different way. Remember – questions always start with a capital letter and finish with a question mark, not a full stop.
Task – Try the ‘Asking Questions Cut and Stick activity’ and see if you can fix the jumbled up questions.
Challenge – To write a diary entry for today and include at least one question, without support from an adult, that has a capital letter and a question mark.
Today we are going to continue practicing our new sound 'g' like 'j'. Work through the activities below with someone at home.
