Phonics: ure – sure its pure

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqAww_2U5S0

Maths: This week we are going to use positional language to describe where things are and to give directions. Children need to understand these words: behind, inside, outside, on top of, underneath, in front of, next to.

Practical Activities: Find yourself a cuddly toy or toy figure. Follow these instructions. Perhaps you could take pictures of your toy in each of the 10 places you choose. How many different hiding places can you for each instruction?

Put your toy:

  1. on top of something
  2. behind something
  3. above something
  4. inside something
  5. below something
  6. next to something
  7. underneath something
  8. in front of something
  9. outside of something
  10. beside something

Please use your original Busy Ant Maths Book 1C and complete page 10 – Where is Toby?

English: We are going to do some creative writing this week. Each day you will be shown a picture and a question. You need to look at the picture and think about the question and write sentences about these. You might choose to write your response as a story, an information text, a poem or clear, descriptive sentences. You don’t need to print the pictures out, you just need to look at them and write your response in your book.

Maths: Let’s test what we have learnt so far. Login to Mathletics and complete the assigned activity – Property of Shape and Position – Where is it? Miss Elson will be able to check how well you have done.

Additional activities:

  • Two Rings – This problem provides a great environment in which to discuss the meaning of words related to position, for example touching, overlapping, inside and outside. You use real rings (perhaps wooden or plastic), you could ask children to make some rings as part of the task, maybe out of pipe cleaners or children could draw their own two rings.

Maths: Coloured Squares – This problem gives children the chance to become more familiar with everyday words which describe position. It also requires them to work in a systematic way.

Before trying this task, you might like to arrange some coloured sheets of paper on the floor and ask your child to talk about what they can see, drawing attention to the use of appropriate vocabulary, e.g. above, below, next to, opposite, in between, to the left of, to the right of.

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

During this time of home learning, Miss Elson will set out daily learning and linked work tasks for Phonics, Maths and English here on the class website page. This information will also be sent out by text message for those who do not have internet access. Please only complete the pages of work in the home learning pack that are set on that day, as every child will be given the same tasks.

Daily phonics lessons will be uploaded here and a link will be uploaded to twitter. Please ensure you are accessing this daily.

If you find yourself in isolation, this would be an excellent opportunity for your child to learn new skills for example tying shoe laces, clicking your fingers, whistling, independently fastening their coat/buttons.

As well as the work provided, your child has logins to various online resources which can help and support their learning. Details of these are below and logins can be located on the back of your child’s timetable, in their reading record and on their Bug Club bookmark.

Currently we do not know how long school will remain closed but we hope be back to normal soon, depending on when the government lift School restrictions.

May I take the opportunity to wish you all well and I look forward to seeing you all healthy and happy very soon!

Many thanks

Miss H Elson

 

Mathletics; when you login you can access different areas of learning and there are various activities linked to that specific area.

Bug Club; your child can access a wide range of books that are at your child’s reading level. They can read for pleasure and then take fun quizzes to earn rewards.

Reading Wise; this is a phonics resource that will help recap and embed phonics sounds they have been taught. It also helps children to blend sounds and support reading.

Literacy:

In English the children will be focusing on ‘Stone Soup’ retold by Julia Damassa. The children will be developing their understanding of traditional tales and story language and using this to write their own traditional tales and instruction texts.

Suggestions of activities and tasks to be completed in the home learning pack will be uploaded here daily.

Reading:

Please continue to read daily with your child. This can be their school reading book, books from home and using their Bug Club login. Encourage your child to read known words without sounding them out and, when needed, to sound out words in their head then read aloud (known as ‘Fred in your head’).

Phonics:

Two Phonics lessons will be uploaded here daily. Each of these lessons follows the known Read Write Inc. format, using ‘My Turn, Your Turn’ and children should be encouraged to join in verbally. After watching each video, children must locate the pages for the sound in both of their phonics booklets. Using these pages children will read both real and nonsense words containing the sound.

Children can then login to Reading Wise and continue their phonics reading. This will support the progress of their reading, which is a whole school focus for this school year.

Please continue to use your phonics flash cards. There are some good games available at https://monsterphonics.com/games/

Maths:

The children will complete the measuring unit by measuring weight and volume. They will then use this in problem solving.

Suggestions of practical activities and pages to complete in the home learning pack will be uploaded here daily.

Please support your child’s maths knowledge by counting in multiples of 2, 5 and 10.  Encourage your child to count forwards and backwards from any number in 1s, including across 100 and to read and write numbers to 100 in numerals.

P.E:

It is important that children remain active during this time. This could include going for a walk, riding a bike, skipping, throwing and catching, Just Dance and yoga for kids. The Body Coach, Joe Wicks has announced he will host daily, live PE lessons on his YouTube at 9am.
