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 sentence with the word 'what' 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 count forwards and backwards within 50

 

Today we are going to be using number tracks to help us count forwards and backwards. 

We will be counting from a range of numbers and also thinking about the numbers that come before and after. These are skills that we have learnt before. 

 

For example, there are 17 red counters so we start counting forwards from 17.

We can use the number track to help us with our counting. 

However, sometimes numbers on the track may be missing and you need to work out what they might be. By counting forwards and backwards, you should be able to work these out. 

 

 

There are two different teach its below, try teach it 1 and 2 first, if this is difficult then try the other version.

 

 

PHONICS

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

Yesterday you looked at the digraph 'ea' when it makes the 'e' sound. 

Can you read these words below?

 

 

Today we would like you to choose 3 of these words and put them into sentences. 

Can you use any tricky words in your sentences? Or even use more than one of the words above in the same sentence?

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 label a diagram

 

Today we would like you to use your research from yesterday to complete your work.

Your task is to draw your chosen tree and label it with the facts that you found. 

Did your tree have fruit? Make sure it is on the drawing so that you can label it. 

What shape were the leaves on your tree? 

Below is an example of an Oak tree with labels.

FOUNDATION SUBJECTS

Each subject should take you an hour to complete.

DT WALT describe how potatoes can be eaten

 

Today we will be thinking more about potatoes. 

 

Can you think of the many different ways that potatoes can be cooked and used?

For example, they can be mashed, roasted, boiled, made into chips or even crisps!

We would like to you to choose 4 ways that potatoes can be used, then draw and label them in the table below. 

Once you have drawn them, can you decide which one if your favourite and why?

PSHE WALT tackle new challenges

 

Today we are thinking about tackling new challenges. When we learn new things we have to stretch our thinking or our skills. This usually means trying over and over again, stretching a bit more each time. Stretch your fingers as far as you can and then clench your fists. This is what it is like and it gets a little bit easier each time we do it.

Your task today is to make a ‘stretchy flower’ by following these steps. This may stretch your learning but have a go and be as imaginative as you like.

Step 1 – Draw around your hand

Strep 2 – Cut out your hand print

Step 3 – Decorate it to make it look like a flower

Step 4 – Create a pot to ‘put’ your flower in

You can make more than one if you want to stretch your learning even further.
