Friday 8th Jan

Morning Job!

 

Our new tricky word is:

Read the word. Remember tricky words cannot be sounded out like most of the words we read in phonics.

 

When you are confident you can read the word,

 

Look at it, say it, cover it, write it, check it

If you spell it correctly 3 times in a row, write a sentences with the word 'said' in.

 

MATHS

Please remember, your child should be spending 1 hour on Maths a day. Half an hour of this lesson is delivered on zoom and the second half an hour is available in Teach it, Twist it and Deepen it activities. Please do not access these activities until after the Zoom session. Thank you.

 

Please also note, these are not sums. A sum is an addition calculation, we are subtracting. We call any addition or subtraction number sentence a calculation.

 

WALT subtract by counting back

 

Yesterday, we used 10 frames to help us subtract ones from a 2-digit number. Today we will be developing this skill by using a number track to count back.

 

Let's look at this calculation:

 

12 - 4

First, we would find 12 on our number track and then jump back 4 spaces

This tells us that the answer is 8.

 

12 - 4 = 8

PHONICS

You should be spending half an hour a day on your phonics activities.

 

The Phase 3 grapheme we are revising, the Phase 5 grapheme is a new sound for you to try

 

Phase 3

igh

igh is a trigraph because it has 3 letters but makes 1 sound.

The grapheme igh can be found in the middle or at the end of words.

 

Watch the 'igh' video below. Sing along and have a go at the actions in the chorus.

 

Read the words below:

Can you use them in a sentence?

Write down 3 sentences you have made with these words then draw a picture to match.

 

Phase 5

ea

The digraph 'ea' makes the same sound as the digraph 'ee'.

 

Watch the 'ea' songs below. Read along with the words on the screen.

 

Look at the picture below to see which words have 'ea' 'ee' or 'y' in them.

 

Write 5 sentences. One for each of the 'ea' words above.

 

Now have a look in your story books. Can you find any words with the 'ea' digraph in them?

 

ENGLISH

Please remember, your child should be spending 1 hour on English a day. 

Half an hour of this lesson is delivered on zoom and the second half an hour is available in the uploaded activities. Please do not access these activities until after the Zoom session. Thank you.

 

SPaG WALT use exclamation marks

 

Yesterday, we witnessed a tragedy! We put on our detective caps and had a good look at some different crime scenes. I can imagine those poor fruit and vegetables would have had a lot to say about what had happened to them all.

 

This is an exclamation mark:

 

 Can you remember when we learnt about these before?

 

We use an exclamation mark to:

  • show surprise
  • show excitement
  • show strength
  • show shouting
  • give a command

 

They go at the end of a sentence instead of a full stop.

 

Your job today is to draw a piece of fruit or veg from the crime scenes yesterday (or create your own if you want to) and write an exclamation in a speech bubble. Think about what they might want to say. Use the list above to remind you when we can use an exclamation mark.

If you would like to print the speech bubbles, they are in the document below.

 

Once you've finished writing, you might want to record yourself saying them expressively paying particular attention to the !

FOUNDATION SUBJECTS

Each subject should take you an hour to complete.

 

Music WALA rhythm

 

Rhythm is the flow of words or notes.

It is a regular, repeated pattern of sound.

Look through the 'Rhythm' slides below and have a go at the activities.

 

If the links in the document do not work, they are also shared below for you to click to access.

 

As it's Friday, let's end the week with a bit of mindfulness.

Below are some colouring pages (if you have access to a printer), yoga poses, Mindfulness activity cards and calm music.

 

Take your pick.

 

Well done for all your hard work this week.

We are very excited to see you all again next week!

Stay safe and be good
