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 'were' 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.

WALT problem solve

 

Today we will be problem solving.

To do this we will need to remind ourselves of these symbols:

 

We will also be looking at how different calculations can be represented:

 

 

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

oi

Today we will be revisiting the 'oi' digraph.

Watch the video below and try reading the words as you go along.

 

Your task today is to have a go at 'The Coin in the Soil' activity. If you print the sheets, colour the 'oi' words as you read through the story. Otherwise, highlight them on your screen if you can or you may wish to write them down on paper as you find them. 

 

Phase 5

aw

Our new sound for today is 'aw' like 'or'.

This digraph is mostly found in the middle or at the end of words.

See the examples below:

Watch and read along with the 'aw' clip below.

Have a go at the 'aw' activity sheet. There is also an 'aw' snakes and ladders game for you to play as well.

 

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 list adjectives to describe

 

Today we would like you to design your very own vegetable character.

You may wish to base this character on a vegetable from our Supertato story or you may wish to be a little more inventive.

 

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Once you have drawn your vegetable character and given it a name, make a list of adjectives to describe your character's...

 

 

Appearance:

- What they look like, what they are wearing

- Their colour, size, shape, texture

 

Character:

- What they are like, e.g. kind, sneaky, mischievous, clever, strong

 

Once you have made your list of adjectives, you may be feeling particularly creative and want to bring your character to life

We would love to see the characters you design. Please email them in and be sure to let us know if you would like them featured on our webpage!

 

FOUNDATION SUBJECTS

Each subject should take you an hour to complete.

PE WALT improve throwing underarm and overarm

 

Today we would like you to work on your overarm and underarm throwing technique.

REMEMBER: always keep your eye on the target.

 

 

Why not try developing your throwing skills using different objects. This could be different sized balls, different shaped objects, teddies.

 

Try filming yourself and seeing where you need to improve.

PSHE WALT work well with a partner

 

Today is all about learning how to work well with a partner. 


To start with, play the mirror game with someone at home. One is the leader and the other is the mirror. You must do exactly as your partner does. You can then swap over and have a go on the other side. 


Discuss what makes a good partner. This could include listening to each other, taking turns and sharing equipment. 


Your challenge is to design a wellie together. You will need to decide what it is going to look like, who is drawing or colouring each part and what materials you are going to use. 
Once finished, talk about what went well and what could have gone better.
