# Monday 18th May

Good morning Carle class, another marvellous Monday. We hope you had a lovely weekend! Thank you for all the lovely emails we had last week. We know how hard it is to keep your child learning whilst many of you are still working yourselves. A big well done and thank you from us, we appreciate your on-going effort.

RWI

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.

Literacy

This week we are reading the story ‘Handa’s Surprise’ by Eileen Brown. Find it here ….. https://youtu.be/ocnRQi89nK8

It is a lovely story about a little girl called Handa. Do you know where she lives? What is the surprise she gets? Is it a nice surprise? Today we would like you to create a story map to retell the story. Draw simple pictures to represent the different parts of the story. Don’t forget to label the key animals and fruits on your map. When you’ve have finished retell the story in your own words using the map as a guide.

Maths

Good morning children, let's get our maths brains warmed up by using a 100 number square on your phone, laptop, or you can print it out. Point to each number and count as far as you can go.

This week we are going to start looking at doubling.doubling means 'twice as many'  Start off with playing a game of snap. This shows the same and can help children to make the link. If you are using a pack of number playing cards this is a brilliant opportunity to count the objects on the cards and count how many there is altogether. Model to the children using 'double 3 is 6', repeat this when playing the game. Once you have finished play a game of dominoes using the same rule, get the children to use the language 'double __ is __'.  Remember to touch each object as they careful count, you can model this to the children. Playing these games is a fantastic way for children to learn doubles without them even realising.

Lets finish off our maths lesson by using our 100 number square. Give the children a number and ask them to find it on the number square, recognising numbers to 20 is an important skill for children to learn in recepetion but challenging them to recognising other numbers will prepare them for next academic year.

Topic

This week we will be looking at 'Handa's Surprise'. Today we would like you to get a selection of fruits (if possible or you can use a different type of food) and position them in front of you like the picture below. Paint a picture of the objects in front of you and remember to use the whole page. If you do not have paints you can use crayons, felt tips or wax crayons and remember to have fun!
