Tuesday

Good morning! It’s terrific Tuesday! How were those smoothies and milkshakes??

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

Today we want to know how to make milkshake. If you made your own yesterday you can use that experience. If not have a look at some instructions or recipes online or in cooking books.

We would then like you to create your own recipe sheet to make your favourite milkshake. This is called instruction writing. You need to provide all the steps for us to follow. Don’t forget to list the ingredients you used first. Then write a sentence for each stage of the recipe. We would love you to send us your recipes or pictures of anything you have made.

Does each sentence make sense? Have you used your Fred fingers to spell words? Have you got finger spaces between your words? Are your letters well formed? Have you got a full stop at the end of each sentence? Is your writing clear and readable?

Maths

Lets 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.

This activity is related to subtraction but by 'digging deeper' and getting the children to use their skills in a different context. Please feel free to use practical objects if you do not have the resources, you can make your own or even draw some.

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?

Enjoy the rest of your learning ðŸ˜Š

Topic

Today we want you to investigate - where does milk comes from? This activity is about the main stages in the production of milk. Quiz the children to see if they can guess where milk comes from. Suggest different animals to see which they believe provides the milk we drink.

Or read through the attachments below.

Talk through the main stages:

• Dairy cow are reared by farmers around the UK.
• The farmer looks after the dairy farms.
• The dairy cows are milked two-three times a day.
• The milk is taken from the farm to be processed.
• The milk is treated to make it safe to drink and put into bottles or cartons.
• The fresh milk is for sale in shops.
