Fabulous Friday! Congratulations on completing another week of learning. Thank you again for the support you have shown by sending us all the wonderful pictures and videos of the work you have completed at home. Please remember to email us at least once every week so we can keep up to date.
Enjoy your weekend!
Remember to practise your sounds daily. RWI will be holding daily virtual lessons for children to practise their sounds:
Set 1 sounds at 9:30am or 12:30pm
Set 2 sounds at 10:00am or 1:00pm
They have updated these lessons to include word time for set 1 speed sounds and spelling for set 2 and 3. There is also “Storytime with Nick” three times a week and some poems that your child can learn and perform.
Read the story ‘mad about minibeasts’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oUEWJTcQaY
Which mini beast is your favourite? Why? Can you write a sentence about which insect is your favourite and which is the insect you least like? Don’t forget to include the reason why!
(Remember we want your child to use their sounds to spell so not all words will be spelt right!). Don’t forget the checklist we use in class when writing. Have you used your Fred fingers to spell words? Have you got finger spaces between your words? Are your letters well formed? If you notice a letter is the wrong way you could practice it!
Let's get those brains nice and warm. Ask an adult to write numerals 0-20 down and cut them up. Get an adult to give you a number, can you match the number to the numeral in front of you. Then order the numerals 0-20.
Yesterday we started learning about 'adding more'. Today we are going to be adding more using children ( or counters or coins) to the bus. Print or draw a simple bus. Ask the children to get an amount of objects, e.g 6 and get them to touch count each object to make they are careful counting.Tell them that some more children are getting on the bus e.g 3 and ask the child to place 3 more on the bus. How many children are there on the bus now? Remember to remind them to careful touch count to check their answer.
Time to finish off our maths lesson. Read any numerals from the numerals 0-20 you have used today. Choose any number and read the number. Can you count the correct amount of objects to match your numeral. Let's make sure we recognise and understand all numbers to 20
Today we would like you to create a (or more) rock mini beast. Search outside during your daily exercise for as many flat rocks as you can find or need. You can use paint to decorate them and they can be a range of mini beasts or just one. Lady birds are an excellent way to include maths during this activity and if you have enough rocks you can use them as a maths resource to use at home ( see the picture below). They can use them to count, add amounts together and match the numeral to the ladybird, put them in order.
