# Thursday 14th May

Thursday

Morning Carle Class. It’s thoughtful Thursday today. Why don’t you do something nice for someone in your house today? Tell your mum how brilliant they are or give your dad a hug. Don’t forget to think about all the people helping us through this strange time.

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

For today’s writing we are going to write what we have learnt about cows. Draw a picture of your cow and label it. Then underneath write what you have learnt about dairy cows. Where do they live? How do farmers take care of them? What do they eat?

(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 that to! Each sentence should start with a capital letter and end with a full stop.

Maths

Let's start our maths off recalling doubles. Double 1 is 2 ( get your child to put 1 on each hand to show that it is the same on each hand). Double 2 is 4 ( get your child to put 2 on each hand to show that it is the same on each hand) Double 3 is 6 ( get your child to put 3 on each hand to show that is the same amount on each hand). Recap counting to 20 forwards and backwards. Get your child to add a movement to each number such as jumps, claps, star jumps or patting their knees.

Today we are going to carry on looking at numbers to 20. By the end of Reception the children are expected to be able to count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number.

Lets finish off our maths with getting some 3D real life objects around your house. Get your child to look at the object, what 3D shape does it look like? Why? What 2D shapes can you see on your 3D shape. Talk about the 2D shapes you can see. Can you find an object in the house that is a cube, cuboid? Can you find an object in your house that has a square, triangle, circle on it? It is important that these are real life objects.

Watch and join in with the 2D shape song on the link below. Can you make actions to go with the shapes?
