Literacy

This week we are going to think about 5 things.

Each day I’d like you to draw and write some words to go with your pictures.

Today I’d like you to draw 5 things you have enjoyed during lockdown. Try and write some words yourself, grown ups you are welcome to write what your child says if they cannot write all the words themselves. I’d love it if you could bring your work to school with you next week.

Here are my 5 things…

               

             sledging             local walks                baking buns            eating pizza               looking at the sky 

 

Maths

Let’s look back at the numbers 0-10.

Practise writing them properly, all the right way round!

Watch the video and practise with Miss Ellis

Make sure you recognise all the numbers, practise the ones you don’t. Have a number of the day if you need to!

We’re going to look closely at two numbers each day and find out more about them.

Today I have chosen…..

5             10

Here’s a Numberblocks episode for each.

Pick a number, count that many objects,  clap that many times, find two numbers that make that number when you add them together. Get to know your numbers!

 

Tuesday

 

Phonics- have a look back at the sounds we’ve learnt and practise any that you are not sure of. We have looked at different phase 3 sounds too so see how many you remember.

Today, two new sounds…

oi     and     ear

‘oi’ as in coin  and ‘ear’ as in near

Here’s some oi words to read- coin, coil, boil, tinfoil, toil, join, void

For ‘ear’, I’d like you to go through the alphabet and practise blending to make words-

d-ea r= dear

write down the real words you find (if your child says ‘beer’ you can include it but just point out the spelling, bear shouldn’t come up as it doesn’t have an ‘ear’ sound in it! Try and find 10 words.

If you’re dressing up today as your favourite book character, don’t forget to share a photo on the school facebook page or email it to me. You can also share a photo of you reading in an unusual place.

 

Today I would like you to enjoy lots of stories. Read alone, with a brother or sister, with your mum or your dad. Video call someone and get them to read a story to you too

You could listen to stories on cbeebies radio or Spotify or watch them being read on cbeebies (links below)

So snuggle up, settle down and enjoy some wonderful stories.

I’d love you to draw the front cover of one of your favourite books and write the title and authors name. Bring it with you next week, they’d look lovely on display in the classroom and we’ll read some of your favourite stories too.

 

Friday

WELL DONE! You’ve made it to Friday. Miss Vincent, Mrs Russell and I are really looking forward to seeing you all bright and early on Monday morning. We’ve a few lockdown birthdays to celebrate and a lot of  things to talk about. We’ve missed you all!

Today, I’d like you to gather some of the lovely work you’ve done whilst at home, ready to bring it to school on Monday. Bring the things you are most proud of!

And if you can, please draw the front cover of your favourite book if you didn’t manage to do that yesterday. I’ve added a paint ‘to do’ on Purple mash if you’d rather draw it on there, and another where you can draw your 5 things or your diary from last week.

Have a last look at numbers to 10, watch the videos at the bottom of this page, watch Numberblocks, do some counting, adding, doubles. Practise the things that you have found hard.

Then have a rest, chill out and get ready for Monday, it’s going to busy, we’ve a lot of fun to have!

See you on Monday, just 3 more sleeps…

love from Mrs Oram x
