# Monday 27th April

Hi 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 focusing on information writing. Today we would like you to name and label some parts of insects. You can either draw your own bugs to label or print them off using the link below.

Next to each part of the bug can you write the label? Can you use your Fred fingers to write the sounds you can hear?

Underneath have a go at writing a sentence with further information about the bug you have labelled.

There is also a link to an interactive labelling activity here

Maths

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.

This week we are focusing on more complex patterns. We are going to practice, repeat and complete our own AB, ABB and AAB  patterns.

AB- clap, jump, clap, jump

ABB- clap, jump, jump, clap, jump, jump

AAB- Clap, clap, jump, clap, clap, jump

Complete some more physical patterns with your adult. Can you copy it and tell your adult what comes next?

Have a look at the patterns below.

Can you make your own AB, AAB and ABB pattern using objects such as cubes, counters etc? Can you make a pattern for your adult to complete?

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.

Science

Lets go on a Minibeast hunt! Attached is a minibeast hunt checklist. Let us know what minibeasts you founf!

Our minibeast spotter sheet features common creepy crawlies like ladybirds, millipedes and worms. See how many you can tick off.

Minibeasts live in all sorts of habitats. Many prefer dark, damp spots in gardens and woods, so this is a good place to start your hunt. Encourage children to use their best detective skills to track creatures down:

• Peek under large stones and logs to find woodland and millipedes.
• Peer into the cracks in tree bark and deadwood to find beetles and spiders.
• Poke your nose into long grass to see ants and grasshoppers.
• Look closely at leaves to discover caterpillars and ladybirds.
• Keep your eyes peeled after rain – can you spot slugs, snails and worms.

Lots of creepy crawlies live in trees and shrubs. Lay a piece of white cloth, such as an old sheet or pillow case, under a tree or bush and gently shake the branches. You’ll be surprised how many tiny creatures fall out.

Remember – bugs are very tiny, so be careful if you pick them up and always put them back where you found them.
