# Wednesday 8th July

It’s Wednesday so time for some yoga. Today’s story is Popcorn the Dolphin.

For today’s learning we have…

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

Set 2 sounds at 10:00am

Set 3 sounds at 10:30am

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 (Mon, Wed & Fri at 2pm) and some poems that your child can learn and perform.

SPaG

I have attached a Grammar Hammer. The children are used to seeing these in the classroom. It covers a variety of areas that we have been learning about on our SPaG mats.

Literacy

This week we are going to look at a new story called Baboon on the Moon.

Baboon on the Moon is a short film but there are no words so you have to watch the action and listen to the music carefully. Click on the link to watch the film.

Did you enjoy the story? How did it make you feel?

Now you have watched the film I would like you to complete the chart to write statements about what you have found out about Baboon then I would like you to write down questions to record what we don’t know about Baboon. You may need to watch the film again before you complete the chart.

Maths

This morning we have a maths warm up to get our brains working, try to complete this independently.

G/Y/R/O groups:

Today we are going to be putting our knowledge and understanding of tens and ones to the test by adding. Add your ones first, then add your tens. Draw the answer in the box at the end. What number have you made?

Here is a game for you to play to put your learning to the test:

Remember to practise your times tables with Times Tables Rock Stars.

Blue group:

Today we are counting to 20. First watch this clip to recap the numbers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VLxWIHRD4E

Now try and fill in the missing numbers on the number line.

Art

Last Art lesson we learnt about Warhol and how he uses colour to make bright art, before that we learnt about Mondrian and how he uses primary colours to make his art. Do you remember what the 3 primary colours are? Today you are going to experiment with colour. Do you know what 2 colours make green? Or what colour is made if you mix red and blue? Watch the song about mixing colours and then have a go at it yourselves with the colour wheel I’ve attached. First paint on the 3 primary colours like in the video. Then use a paper plate to mix two primary colours together and the colour that you make goes in the middle of them.
