Wednesday

Good morning! Today is known as wild Wednesday in Carle class. Wednesday is our P.E. day so let’s get up and moving!! Remember Joe Wicks P.E. sessions are streamed live on YouTube daily.  You could also try some of the Zumba dances or Yoga activities on the website Go Noodle. If you fancy something a bit different you might like this … let’s dance!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHscaKsr0IU

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

Show the children some samples or pictures of dairy food, such as milk, yogurt and cheese. You could use the ‘Where does milk come from?’ presentation. Talk about the different dairy food. Ask what can you see? What is each one called? Who has had these before?

Explain that dairy food is from milk, and that milk is from a dairy cow. While other animals also provide milk, such as sheep and goats, milk from a dairy cow is the most popular in the UK.

Can you make an information poster about the different dairy foods there are, such as milk, yogurt and cheese? It could include what they taste like, some different types of dairy food, where dairy food comes from or why dairy food is important for us to eat.

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

ts 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 start 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.

You can use your number line to 20 that we made a few weeks ago for this activity or create a new one for today. If you do not have a dice please feel free to use the link below which is a random number generator, you can put numbers 1-6 and press generate as if you were using a dice.

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

Butter churning! This morning we learnt butter was one of the dairy products. But how is it made? What is churning? Where do you get butter from normally? Show a picture of churning. Discus how people would have made their own food much more a long time ago before supermarkets.

Today have a go at making your own butter. You need a jar with a tight lid, creamy milk or heavy cream. Then shake!
