Morning Job

Read through the tricky words in the table below. Which ones do you still find difficult? Don't forget, we can't sound out tricky words like we do with other words.

Once you have read through these tricky words, choose 5 that you find the most difficult and practise spelling these without looking at the word.

 

Challenge: Use these 5 words in a sentence

(they don't all have to be in the same sentence. Please think of 5 separate sentences)

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.

 

WALT subtract not crossing the 10

 

In school we have been using 10 frames to help us solve calculations. For example, the number 15 can be represented in a 10 frame like this:

 

This tells us that the number 15 has 1 ten and 5 ones in it as one ten frame is completely filled (showing 1 ten) and the second ten frame has only 5 counters in it (showing 5 ones).

 

Today we will not be crossing the 10 therefore the completed 10 frame will remain complete, we will only be subtracting ones in the second 10 frame.

 

e.g. 15 - 3 = 12

 3 ones have been subtracted leaving 1 ten and 2 ones.

1 ten and 2 ones = 12

 

 

 

 

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

ee

 

Read along with the video below.

 

Then, have a go at the dice game.

(Don't worry if you don't have a dice, you could make a spinner or some number cards instead).

Which ever number you pick, you must read one of the words. If you get it right you can move onto another word. Can you fill the whole grid and read all of the words?

Once you've done that you might want to have ago at the second job. Can you be a pseudo detective and identify which words are real and which words are not?

Phase 5

oy

oy is an alternate digraph for the one we have already learnt, 'oi'.

 

Listen to the 'oi oy' song below and read along with the words as they pop up.

You might enjoy the 'oi oy' rap as well.

 

Below are 2 activities for you to complete for the grapheme 'oy'. Please see the above table to see what to do.

 

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.

 

WALT write informative sentences

 

 

Take a look at these crime scene pictures!

Talk about what you can see in each picture. What has happened to the vegetables?

 

Your job today is to write an informative sentence about each picture.

When you inform someone you are telling them information.

 

e.g. The orange carrots are trapped under the basket.

 

In this sentence I have told you the colour of the carrots, what has happened to them and where they are.

 

If you want to download the sheet you can, otherwise write your sentences on a piece of paper or you could type them on your computer.

 

Don't forget your capital letters, finger spaces and full stops in each sentence.

FOUNDATION SUBJECTS

Each subject should take you an hour to complete.
