Tuesday

Happy Terrific Tuesday Carle class. How did you get on with your school work yesterday? We hope you are well and if you need anything please don’t hesitate to contact us and thank you for sending in your children’s work it is really appreciated.

RML

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 can you use your story map to write sentences about Oliver? Pick at least one day and write sentences to describe what happened.

For example ….. On Monday Oliver had crunchy carrots.

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?

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?

Yesterday we introduced taking away to the children using only objects. Today we are going to start off by showing the children the takeaway sign- draw it on a piece of paper and show them this sign means take away. Today we would like you to continue physically taking away with the children but this time we would like you to write the number sentence down so that the children can link the numbers to the physical action. For example- write down 7-4=. Read the number sentence to the children and point to each part as you read it. Go through the number sentence and complete the action- 7 and get 7 objects, takeaway so we need to take away 3 and equals means we need to see how many we have got left. Remember careful counting.

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

Today we would like you to make a collage of a vegetable of your choice. Draw the outline of the shape or print one off the internet if you can. Cut/rip/shred pieces of paper, tissue paper or any material of your choice and stick them onto the paper. Remember to keep to the shape of your vegetable. Below is an example to help you.
