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

Literacy

On Saturday the caterpillar eats a lot of food! Today we want you to pretend you are the hungry caterpillar and write about what you would eat if you were feeling hungry! Can you use the word ‘and’ in your sentences? The word ‘and’ is used to join two smaller sentences together.

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 too!

Maths

Good morning! Lets start our maths learning off by recapping what 3D shapes we have learnt. Can you find any shapes in your house? What shapes did you find? Can you name them? How many corners do they have? How many sides do they have?

How far did you get counting backwards yesterday? We had some amazing videos of children thank you! Can you count backwards from 40? Use your number line to help you so you know what each number looks like? Think you can count backwards from a bigger number? Have a go and let us know what you got to.

This week we have been learning about patterns. Today you are going to create your own pattern in the tiles template provided. Think of a few patterns to continue to make your tile colourful. When you have finished write down the pattern underneath and send it to us so that we can see it. The empty tile template is attached in the resources.

Lets finish off our maths by working on what we looked at all week, estimating. This is a new skill you are learning so it is important to keep going over this skill. Estimate how many objects you can see. Estimating is guessing how many objects you have without counting them. Once you have estimated how many objects you have, count and see if you were close

Topic

Below are two activities for you to complete about caterpillars. The first activity is to make a caterpillar name. Write down your name and count how many letters it has.Next cut out that amount of circles and one more for the head. Write each letter on a circle and make your name using the circles. Place the head at the front and remember to add the feet.

Activity 2 is making using leaves from outside. You can make different creatures out of leaves and materials from outside. What different objects can you find? What creatures can you make using the outdoor resources? Or you can ask an adult to help you to put holes in the leaves and have a go at threading them together.
