Monday 18th May

Good Morning and welcome back to our home learning pages. We have decided that our reading challenge will work slightly differently from now on. We want to make sure EVERY child is celebrated for their reading efforts. Every time a child has read a total of 15 books, they will receive a reading certificate. We have kept records of how many books your child has read over the last 3 weeks. When they have read 15 books, then 30 books, then 45 etc in total, they will get a certificate and a shout out in the Friday celebration assembly. We wouldn't expect any child to read 15 books in one week but we hope that children are able to read a book daily. Reading little and often is proven to be the most effective approach. Please keep letting us know how many books your child has read each week by Thursday 4pm latest. If you let us know after that, the total will be added to the following week. Good luck reading and if you have any questions please email us.

Phonics 

 

As it is the last week of term, we are going to have a recap of the sounds and words we have already learnt. This will consolidate learning and help children to become more fluent and confident when reading more familiar words. The aim is to get children reading words without having to sound them out. Sound out the words in your head (or silently) then just say the whole word. This is the first step to becoming fluent readers. 

 

Disco Ninjas 

1. Recap the phase 3 sounds and new phase 4 clusters/blends words (mp, nk, nd, st, nt, ft, lt, sk, lp and pl). You can use the flash cards provided (If you can't print them, use scrap paper and write them on).

2. https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/2/reading-robot   recap phase 3 words. See if you can sound out the words in your head and then say the whole word out loud.

1. Recap sound flash cards phase 2 and phase 3 learnt so far. 

2.Oral blending practice. Adult says some words in sounds. Can the child blend them and say the word? e.g. adult says s-i-p  chd. says sip.  repeat with words using pahse 2 sounds-  p-a-t, n-i-p, f-o-g, n-e-t, t-e-ll, s-i-ck, t-e-ll, m-o-ss, r-i-p etc. 

3. https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/2/rocket-rescue practise phase 2 spelling words.

If you can't play the game, you can think of 3 letter words to practise reading and writing. You could paint the words or write them in chalk outside and then wash them off with sponges when they read them. 

4. Complete worksheet recapping some phase 2 words. 

 

 

Topic

Our new topic this week is Jack and the Beanstalk. Have you read this story before? The brilliant Mrs Jones has read the story for you below...

Could you plant something this week? It could be an apple seed or runner bean seed or sunflower seeds. You could grow them on your windowsill or garden. Some will even grow in a pot with kitchen roll as soil (great to see how the roots grow). Maybe you have already been planting seeds and looking after them as they grow. Talk about what a plant might need to grow and why. Is it similar to things we need to grow and stay alive? Talk about what you have to do. Use the language first, then, next, after that and finally. Use this language to structure your writing. You could model writing the instructions with them. Thinking about the sentence, then the sounds you need for each word and write it down. 

 

Write simple instructions about how to plant seeds. (Use worksheet below)  

e.g. First get some mud, Next put a seed in, Then add water on it. 

 

 

 

 

Maths

 

Starter activity:

Number recognition- Use flash cards or splat square game  https://www.primarygames.co.uk/pg2/splat/splatsq100.html  

 (Put the ones not known in a separate pile and practise them again)  

 

This week our main skill we are looking at is taking away. Can children take away 1 digit numbers from 1 digit numbers? They can use objects at first and then we will move towards using number lines, our fingers and eventually taking away in our heads (Year 1 and beyond)

 

Watch some of the numberblocks episodes about subtraction.

How many take away number sentences can you make taking away from 7? Can you find all 8? What other numbers could you take away from and find all of the possibilities? (Challenge to take away from numbers beyond 10. How do you know you have found them all? (You have used all the different numbers/have been systematic and taken away 7, then 6, then 5, then 4 etc). You could use objects to do this and parents can model the number sentences. Children could try to write them themselves for practise. 

 

There is a tens frame below. This is useful for children to place their objects in when calculating. It helps them see number patterns like doubles and 1 more//1 less and keep object sin an order which helps with counting. You could use this to help. When using numbers beyond 10, they are very helpful to represent that 13 has 10 and 3 in it by using 2 tens frames.

Story time

 

This is a a great story about an enormous turnip.
