# Monday 11th January

Morning Carle class,

A lovely Monday morning, we hope you all had a good weekend. Welcome back for another week of learning! Don't forget to email us to let us know how you get on with your learning; carle@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

Let's start Monday by warming up! Joe Wicks is back every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9.00am. Join in and start the day off with some fun: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

### RWI:

A new Set 1 RWI session will be available at 9:30am today. Don't forget to practise the sound and then complete the reading and spelling sections as well.

### Literacy:

This week we are carrying on with learning about Jack and the beanstalk. You can re-watch the story below:

## Jack and the Beanstalk

For your Literacy task today we would like you to create a story map. We have attached some examples of what a story map should look like below or you can search Pie Corbett to find out more.

Draw your story map to show all the key parts of Jack and the Beanstalk. Make sure you have all the main characters and events. Then label your drawings with words such as 'mum', 'magic', 'beans', 'hen', or 'gold'. Keep this story map safe as you will need it for the rest of the week. Don't forget to send any pictures to us.

### Maths:

Today in maths we are going to be looking at something brand new – making bigger numbers out of smaller numbers. To do this, we need to remember a very important fact:

Every bigger number is made of smaller numbers

We call these smaller numbers ‘parts’. For example, the bigger number ‘2’ is made up of two small parts – ‘1’ and ‘1’

We are going to start off today by watching an episode of Numberblocks. It’s all about our important fact – can you remember what it was?

Access the episode here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08dr1l3/numberblocks-series-1-the-whole-of-me

For our learning today, we are going to use a five frame to practice splitting numbers into two smaller parts. You can print off the document below if you want a ready made five frame, or you can draw your own by copying this picture:

Now you’ve got your five-frame ready, let’s practice putting some numbers together. We’re going to start with the number 2. If you feel confident, move on to the next number.

(To use your five-frame, make sure that each object has it's own square)

Number 2:

• How many objects do we need to put on to our five-frame to make 2?

Number 3:

• Add one object to your five frame – how many objects do we need to put on to make 3?
• What about if we add two objects to our five frame first? How many more objects do we need?
• Now you’ve got the correct amount of objects, can you split them into two smaller parts?

Numbers 4 & 5:

• There is more than one way of making the numbers 4 and 5 – how many ways can you think of? Can you show these ways on the five frame?
• Extra challenge: Put 4 or 5 objects on to your five frame. Without touching the objects, do you know how many would be left if you removed 1,2 or 3?

Well done for your maths learning today Reception. Before you move on to something else, can you remember what our fact was today? Don’t worry if you’ve forgotten, we’re going to practice again tomorrow!

### Topic:

Can you remember which items Jack takes from the giant's castle? One item he takes is a harp. What is a harp? What does it do?

Here is a picture of a real harp, it is a musical instrument:

Today we would like you to read through the body percussion PowerPoint. What sounds can you make with your body?
