# Monday 4th May

Good Morning Carle class, another marvellous Monday. We hope you had a lovely weekend! 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 learning about the story Oliver’s vegetables. You can find the story here ….. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yvllKqyVUc

On each day Oliver tries a different vegetable. Today can you draw a story map retelling what Oliver ate on each day. Don’t forget to label your pictures!

Can you get the vegetables in the right order? Don’t forget to make sure the letters you write are clear. Have you remembered your finger spaces between each word? Our aim is that everyone can read our fabulous writing so make sure it’s readable.

Maths

This week in maths we are going to start off with recapping estimating. Put an amount of objects in front of your child and ask them to estimate how many objects they can see. Model to your child using the word estimate, I estimate that there are 7 objects. When they have estimated count how many objects are there. Were they close?

This week we are going to learn a new skill with the children. Introduce the word takeaway. Get some objects and ask your child to get a certain amount of objects. Ask them to take away a certain amount of objects. For example, can you get me 6 bears? Now takeaway 3 bears. How many bears do you have left. Today is just about doing this practically so please do not worry about showing your child any numerals or take away signs. We encourage practical actitvities first so that your child can physically take away the objects to understand the meaning of 'taking away'.

Lets finish off our maths lesson by getting familiar with coins and notes. Place plastic or real coins in front of your child and let them explore them. What can they see? What numbers do they have on them? Are they all the same? What is different about them? Name the coins with your child.

Topic

This week we are reading 'Oliver's vegetables'. Today we would like to know what vegetables you do and do not like. Find as many vegetables as you can in your house. Let's try to taste as many new vegetables as you can. What does it look like? What does it feel like? What does it smell like? What does it taste like? On one side of the paper put a big smiley face and on the other a sad face. Draw and write a label for each vegetable. Put the ones you do like under the smiley face and the ones you do not like under the sad face. Make sure you send in your work or let us know which ones you did and did not like.

Happy Monday everyone :) See you tomorrow!
